    Some background information on myself
    I've firmed he Uni of Sheffield and I need an A in history (my course is history) to go,unfortunately ive had a major setback.
    My current points/grades
    Post War Britain - 97/100
    American Cicvil war - 71/100
    Bismarck - 45/80
    my poor grade in my coursework, which was due to numerous factors including the teaching/marking (we got corrections, I basically rewrote my essay but in the words of my teacher - "it didn't change the grade really)

    So in order to just scrape an A overall (baring in mind this is if the grade boundaries don't go up) I need 54/60 on both Civil rights papers to get into uni.
    I have managed this before in post war but im struggling with the civil rights essays, has anyone got any tips? Like what themes to use, how to get the high marks etc, I really need help on these essats, I do have a few that ive written if anyone wants to have a look at them and see if they can see where ive gone wrong, any help would be greatly appreciated.
