OCR PAPER 1 guidance

The following link will take you to the OCR guide booklet on Paper 1 (Germany and the Cold War). 

Some of the questions for Germany you may already be able to answer. Remember we haven't finished our Germany topic yet.  Notice that there is a section on both Weimar Germany and also Nazi Germany.  It is worth familiarising yourself with how the exam is structured. By carefully reading page 1 and moving quickly to the sections that will apply to you (Germany and the Cold War), you are less likely to make a big mistake when it counts most.  Pay attention to the number of marks available for each of the questions.  Also have a look for the 'pencil sign' which indicates that you will also obtain marks for accurate spelling and Grammer.

Particularly useful is the mark scheme which you will find following the exam paper itself. This shows you what the examiner is looking for in increasing complexity. Even more useful is the exemplar answer written on the right hand side.

Year 10 - GCSE History Reading

This site is brilliant.  Detailed biographies of the characters that took part in shaping our History.  Also at the bottom of each are comments made by those people and others about them.  Love it.
