    Hey guys!

    Who's taking the Russia exam? Probably the person reading this right now haha...

    We have around 2 weeks left, this is just a place to ask questions and help each other out!!

    Exam: 18th May

    Q1) Essay Question (20 marks) around 45 mins
    Q2) Essay Question (20 marks) around 45 mins

    Q3) Source analysis essay (20 marks) around 45 mins

    Grade Boundaries:

    A=80% (48/60)
    B=70% (42/60)
    C=60% (36/60)
    D=50% (30/60)
    etc. the grades go down in 10% (my teacher told me)

    My teacher told me that because it's the new reformed a levels, the exam paper will be very similar to the real paper so make sure to check it out

    Don't trust me on it but that's what my teacher told me

    What structure do you use when answering a Source Analysis question (q3)?

    Intro outlining question

    p1) for the argument
    p2) against argument but same theme
    p3) completely different factor


    Feeling alright about this exam. Pretty much planned all the spec questions and AS style questions from textbooks.
    Have your teachers been marking your essays against the A Level mark scheme as opposed to the AS one? I feel like this has made my essays slightly stronger, but we shall find out.

    What's your paper 2 on?
