There will no longer be multiplechoice questions in the Cities of Vesuvius Source Study. The section will instead consist of three or four questions, with one worth 10-15 marks.

While the Ancient Society section in past exams had four questions, it may now have three or four.

There have also been slight changes to the Personality section, instead of two questions, there can now be two or three, with at least one of them worth 10-15 marks.

The Historical Period Section remains the same, providing two 25 mark essay questions, one of which you are required to answer.

But don’t worry too much about these changes, you can take a look at the sample paper for the 2019 exam here.
