Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

Sources for Success

Special Resource Packs for GCSE OCR B

Develop students’ source-based skills for exam success with this all-in-one resource. Organised into three key sections:

  1. An Introduction to Sources: Everything students need to know about approaching sources for GCSE History, with annotated examples. The OCR core skills of ‘using contextual knowledge’, ‘inferring’, ‘usefulness & reliability’ & ‘comparison’ are clearly explained. Importantly these skills are demonstrated though sample exam questions, sample answers and examiner’s commentary.
  2. The Sources: Over 35 interesting and varied sources. Each source has been intelligently selected to i) match OCR’s exam style, and ii) allow good questions that are OCR exam typical.
  3. Activities and Exam-style Questions: Activities develop the specific skills explained in the introduction. Exam-style questions prepare students for exam success. Mark schemes included.


New 2009 GCSE Specification
Editable word copy for only £27+VAT extra gives you all the sources and questions in an editable format, so you can adapt them to your needs.
