    Yeah same structure as first question. Remember to use the sources to back your point in question b and use your own knowledge and knowledge of provinence

    What topics? I think like you that foreign policy will come up....I'm also thinking Cromwell might for some reason. Just haven't seen many questions on him =/

    I suppose a foreign policy could include Wolsey... not sure what the question was for the 2010 paper but could be something like: How far do you agree Wolsey was in charge of foreign policy?

    for the 40 mark question you have to have a clear line of argument and refer back to it throughout your evaluation of the sources...own knowledge also carries a lot of marks

    the reformation has to come up maybe how far was it motivated by political or religious factors...however wolsey always features in some way :/

    intro- i agree with question
    First and Second Para - Disagree
    third, fourth and fifth - agree
    conclusion - agree

    is that a suitable structure to an essay?

    The part B questions were:

    Do you agree with the view that the years 1511-24, English successes in foreign policy outweighed the failures?

    Do you agree with the view that the dissolution of the greater monasteries was largely driven by financial motives?
