    My GCSE History course is Edexcel History B and I'm stuck on my coursework question about Vietnam.

    The question is "Explain how US policy towards Vietnam changed during the presidencies of Eisenhower and Kennedy."

    I do understand what the events were in the Vietnam war but i have no clue how to answer this question, I really need an A in my Controlled Assessment to secure a high grade so any ideas of what points i could make in the essay? The question must be answered in half an hour.


    explain what jfk did and what eisenhower did and use context to say why that happened possibly.

    to get an a/a* you need to be critical of the source and say how and why it could be biased

    any more help?

    make sure you know the structure and what each paragraph is on before you right them. Also for words do not go over the limit by a lot !!

    always try cut down on words.

    If need be just take a paper home do it when you are comfortable and take it in to class
