But going by the marking schemes, it looks like you only get marks for very specific things, i.e. no marks are awarded for things that don't have real historical significance.
Could you give an example of say what does get marks and what doesn't?
For example, say if I was writing an answer to "A Factory Worker in Industrial Britain" and I wrote about this workers living conditions at home, would I get marks for that?
If, on the other hand, you veered off into a tale of how the factory owner made his fortune, then you wouldn't.
My name is Tom, last year I moved from the country to the town as we were not needed to work the harvest becasue of the new machines.
(1 SRS - underlined) - This would get marks.
My name is Tom, my wife is Mary, I work in a factory. We have four kids and life is very hard.
This would not get any marks as it is.
It is too waffly.
