Sources for Success: Special Resource Pack for GCSE OCR A History

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: 38 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.
