    How did people find the exam?
    It was a fair paper actually! I just hope the last history exam is as nice! Which unit do you do for the third exam?

    Is the USA an option for unit 3? Ooh I didn't know that! I did the USA as my controlled assessment. I'm doing War and Transformation of British Society 1903-28. Although I find it hard to revise for a source based paper - how are you going to? :/

    Ahh, yeah. i did the British society 1904-28 for my controlled assessment. Yeah, background knowledge is required so I guess I'm just going to memorise the important bits and do past papers to get practice on how to answer the questions.
    I also have a maths gcse a day before so I need to revise for that too:/ - When's your last exam?

    You're not the only one. No one was sitting in the exam room twiddling their thumbs once the time was up :rolleyes:

    My arguments against the hypothesis was cut short.. I had to quickly summarise and then write a conclusion D:

    I have 2 exams left. My Britain paper is the 19th obviously and I have a statistics exam on the 24th. Have you heard of a GCSE exam being later than that this year?!:L it's painful how slowly it's all going...

    I always find history exams are pushed for time so I'm rather used to being under pressure for it unfortunately. So much so it's rather detrimental to my hand writing -.-

    I think I spent too much time on the separate sources though (used the 10 minutes of source analysis time to get started) - later regretting it when I ended up having 10 minutes to evaluate the last of the two sources question so that I had half an hour to do the 12 mark.

    Don't get me started on my handwriting! I had one good look at the mess before I closed the booklet :doh:

    It's really frustrating edexcel insist on making you learn so much for an exam that only picks up on one topic. They should give preliminary material narrowing it down or something...

    That's the harsh reality about about exams.

    They teach you everything but not specifically the things that would come up. If that was the case, everyone would be getting straight A*-B grades.

    I agree it was a fair paper! I struggled a little on the 1930s America though - I listed the AAA as solving unemployment - stupid! I hope it doesnt cost me too much!
