    what questions do you struggle on ? the 4,6,10 ones or the source interpretations ?
    What are the normal grade boundaries for paper 1, my teacher always tells me its 90% for an A*, but i feel thats considerable high compared to all my other subjects?

    I'm doing paper 1: aspcts of international relations: Germany and a new world
    paper 2: british depth study 1939-75

    I'm an A* student, I find that many people struggle with the 10 markers but you literally have to write three paragrapghs:
    1. for
    2. against (depending on the question, 1o markers usually ask your opinion of astatement or the significance of an event)
    3. conclusion, (summaray of what your arhument would be after judging the argumebts fro and against, make sure you don't add any extra points to what you've previouslty mentioned)

    Im in the same position as you, i always get B's in the exam. Im fine with the first part - all of the international relations but i can't seem to grasp the American topic, like the civil rights. I just think there is a lot more in that part.
    Argh!! I don't even know where I'm going wrong, sometimes my teacher says I don't use enough contextual knowledge, other times the structure isn't right, I'm just a bit confused as to what a model answer looks like and how much I should be writing because I feel like I write a lot but just don't write the correct things because I don't get as many marks as I expect to. I don't have an issue with understanding sources or questions and I answer them to the best of my ability but I can't figure out where I'm going wrong

    Hey, I'm also doing Cold War, Vietnam and Cuban missile crisis and Nazi Germany for paper one does anybody have any predictions on what will come up as the compulsory source question- my teacher thinks Vietnam but I really hope it isn't because it's the one topic I haven't clicked with and id like to avoid it if I could.
    I don't like Vietnam either, really dont like it but I managed to find this pattern in the past papers and so I hope this helps mate.

    2010 - Early Cold War Cartoon
    2011 - Vietnam Cartoon
    2012 - Cuban Missile Crisis Cartoon

    2013 - Early Cold War Cartoon
    2014 - Vietnam Cartoon
    2015 - Cuban Missile Crisis Cartoon

    2016 - Early Cold War Cartoon?
    I am almost certain that this years compulsory source question will be on: The Early Cold War
