1 Higher History Paper II How Far/ How Fully Questions

2 The main difference between a “How far” question and a “How fully” question is that the “How far” question will test your knowledge on a sub issue! A sub issue is a point from a specific issue. For example, How far does Source A describe the reasons why Balliol was chosen as the King of Scotland? This would require you to show all your knowledge from both source and recall, about this specific issue! Whereas, “How fully” will ask, How fully does Source B illustrate the impact of Alexander IIIs death on Scotland? Both types of questions require you to use points from the source supported by points of recalled knowledge!

3 How far/fully does Source A explain the problems caused by the death of Alexander III? (10) Don’t read the source yet! Just focus on the question and list as many factors as you can think of?

4 How far/fully does Source A explain the problems caused by the death of Alexander III? (10) Don’t read the source yet! Just focus on the question and list as many factors as you can think of? Now put a cross or tick against any items you listed that are mentioned in the source. Also put a question mark against any items hinted but not explained in the source.

5 How far/fully does Source A explain the problems caused by the death of Alexander III?(10) 1)No King to rule Scotland? 2)No heir to the Scottish throne 3)Possible civil war 4)Competitors to the throne 5)Only one direct blood relative – Maid of Norway Too young Female High child mortality?

7 How far/fully does Source A explain the problems caused by the death of Alexander III? (10) 1)No King to rule Scotland? 2)No heir to the Scottish throne 3)Possiblity civil war breaking out 4)Many competitors to the throne 5)Only one direct blood relative – Maid of Norway 6)Too young Female High child mortality ? In Norway Travel to Scotland from Norway Women could not lead an army Marriage to produce an heir to the throne ? 7)Who could help Scotland until a new leader is found?? 8)Edward wanted to take ScotlandX You are left with a list of source points/ source triggered points and recall. Remember you have almost 30 minutes to write your answer! Explain and develop every point you make.

8 How far/ How fully mark allocation: You can gain 2-3 marks for source evidence supported by recall. You can gain 2-3 marks for points hinted at in the source that you develop/ explain. You can gain 6-7 marks for developing your own points of recall.

9 How far/ How fully exemplar answer: Source A only partly explains the problems caused for Scotland by the death of King Alexander III. Firstly, King Edward I of England saw an opportunity to “annex” Scotland as part of the English kingdom. This became an option for Edward because of the weakened position the Scots were in with no reigning Monarch. (S)

10 How far/ How fully exemplar : In addition, Edward did send “envoys” to talk to the Scots about their plight. However, the source does not explain that Scotland approached Edward for help because he was the Maid of Norway’s great uncle. (S) It is correct that a marriage was agreed between the future English King and future Scottish Queen and that there was a binding agreement at Birgham in 1290 to protect Scotland as an independent nation. (S)

11 How far/ How fully exemplar : While the source does highlight the arranged marriage did never take place due to the tragic death of the Maid of Norway, it fails to highlight several issues regarding the Maid as ruler of Scotland. Had the Maid survived into adulthood, then it would have taken several years for her to mature into the position of queen. ®

12 How far/ How fully exemplar: Also, the fact that Scotland was left with a potential female ruler led to criticism as women did not usually rule and were frowned upon in terms of leading an army into battle. ® In addition, the Maid was in Norway and the Scots had the issue of asking permission of the King of Norway for her to take her place on Scotland’s throne. ®

13 How far/ How fully exemplar: Edward was again happy to help Scotland as helping bring the Maid to Scotland would sweeten the deal to allow her to marry his son, thus linking the English and Scottish crowns. (S) It was agreed that this marriage was a good thing for the future of Scotland as Margaret and Edward could produce an heir to Scotland's throne, which Alexander III had failed to do since the tragic death of all his children before his own! ®

14 How far/ How fully exemplar: The source fails to explain that Scotland was in need of help after Alexander’s death as many suitors to the dead kings throne were arguing and there was a threat of civil war in Scotland. ® Finally, the source omits the fact that with no King and the prospect of war the Scots were also threatened by Edward and England, who came to a meeting at Norham and brought a large army and naval force to ensure he became an ‘overlord’ to the Scots people. ®

15 How far/ How fully exemplar: This answer takes 4 source/ hinted source points and develops each. This answer also takes 6 points of recall, each evenly explained and developed. Producing an answer like this should achieve 9 or 10 out of 10!
