    I am sitting my first exam for the Edexcel History AS on Wednesday and my teacher has given us pretty much no guidance on how to structure our essays. I do Option 1H: Britain transformed 1918-97 and I am particularly confused on how to structure the Thatcher question which we have extracts for. I guess answers are similarly structured whichever option you do as part of the course so if anyone (whatever option you're doing) has had any advice off their teachers on how to structure the 20 mark question that you have 2 extracts for, it would be hugely appreciated if you could pass that over. Any advice would be great as I am pretty lost when it comes to the structure of this question.

    (Also I sympathise with anyone who is sitting this exam because trying to learn all the content in 8 months has been ridiculously difficult)

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here. :dumbells:

    Hiya, check out this thread, this is where we're discussing the "Democracies in Change" Module http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3833825

    With Thatcher, this might help with structure:

    Hogree- i've been told NOT to structure Thatcher like that. A strong answer will talk about sources 1 and 2 together in each paragraphE.g 'statement for idea in question' back up with evidence from source 1 and 2Then a statement against with evidence from 1and 2Dependent on the nature of the sources you may find your answer is more in favour one way and another but give counter argument with evidence from sources 1 and 2.So for examplePara 1 - FOR question discussing both sourcesPara 2- AGAINST question discussing both sourcesThen 3/4 - either for and against or both for or both against dependent on sourceThen conclusionThis got me a high B grade with linking my own knowledge in to boost me to an A xx
