Key things to know
What makes a good set of notes?
Notes should include specific details that can be used to support the analysis and argument.
The details should be carefully selected to be used appropriately and to provide support evenly throughout the essay.
It is not necessary to include quotations and their inclusion should not be automatically rewarded – it is the candidate’s understanding that is being assessed and that is demonstrated through their own comments, not the selection of a comment from an historian. If quotations are included, they should be brief and it should be clear whose view is being expressed.
It is helpful if the notes follow the same order and structure as the plan, or use the same colour coding.
Since students need to identify within the essay the sources of information that have been used, it is helpful if the relevant source is identified for each specific detail in the notes.

You are allowed 1 A4 plan - this cannot have full sentences in it.
You are allowed 2 A4 pages of notes - These cannoot be continuous sentences but may include quotes, key dtates, names, events, causes or consequences.
You must have bibliography - This can be as long as necessary but should include at least five different sources of information.
Sources to use - Secondary sources of information, such as textbooks, websites, history books, documentaries, museums. Sources’ does not mean the short extracts found in textbooks.
Do not describe - this will get you a mximum of 10 out of 20 (E).
You need to cover 3-4 aspects/factors.
Differing Opinions
To get the best marks you need to explain how different sources show differing opinions:
At Level 3 the answer recognises that these sources are interpretations of the past and contain opinion as well as fact.
At Level 4, the student should show that different sources offer different views, perhaps in the interpretation of whether something was a success or effective, or in the emphasis placed on different aspects.
You only need to show an awareness of the differences in the views of the sources; there are no marks available for evaluation of these sources or explanation of why they differ.

A Level 4 comment might be:
X sees the biggest effect of the bombing in Vietnam as the physical destruction and he emphasises the amount of bombs that were dropped and the number of villages that were ruined. However, Y says this destruction was easily repaired and the most significant effect of the bombing was the way it convinced the Vietnamese people that the US was the enemy.
