Before I mislead you, could you please tell me what Board you are studying(e.g. OCR, AQA or Edexcel)?

The way not to run out of time is to work out how long you have for each question, and to keep to the clock.
The OCR board History B modern World
In paper 1, for instance, there are 75 marks for the whole paper, and you have 120 minutes (slightly more than one-and-a-half minutes a mark).
The 'what is the message' sourcework question is worth 7 marks, so spend 7*1.5 = 10.5 minutes maximum on that question.
Similarly, in paper 2, here are 50 marks to be earned in 90 minutes (=1.8 minutes a mark).
So you will spend 16 minutes (9*1.8) on the 9-mark comparison of sources for accuracy source question,
and 12.5 minutes (7*1.8) on the 7-mark 'are you surprised' question.
If any of these have changed, you can work them out for yourself properly.
Watch the time as you are writing and adjust each answer to be finished by the end of the time available.
When you are doing the OCR source questions, remember the two rules:
1. answer the question they are asking you (don;t wander off talking generallyabout the source)
2. use the content, origin and context in your answer.

They may, but it is unlikely.
Thank you once again...also can I ask if past sources that have appeared in exams will ever come up again in other exams? Thank you
You have to be ready for anything... for sources you have never seen before.
