I/GCSE History source paper revision – reliability, usefulness and value

Source reliability and usefulness revision

In these types of questions the examiner wants to see that you recognise that some sources have more value to historians than others, some are more reliable than others, and some are more useful than others.

It’s important to go into the exam knowing that sources can never be completely reliable or unreliable – but they can be more or less reliable. Every source has positive and negative aspects, and you need to consider these in your answer.
