What people are saying about GCSE History paper 2 on The Student Room

elizabeth paper was too good, couldn’t have been any better but cold war could’ve been better but could’ve been worse


Anglo saxon and cold war were both blessings of papers! Knew i was chilling the moment i saw a 16 marker on the damn battle of hastings


cold war was sooo delicious and anglo saxons and normans was pretty good too although for cold war the narrative account was a little weirdly worded like write a narrative account analysing soviet and us relations 1945-47 bit weird but lots to write tbf
