    Which exam do you think is the hardest out of the 3?
    Britain definitely, our mock was on Cold War and Russia so I haven't had a chance to see how well I'd do on it

    Hey Guys. Just wanted to start a thread for the upcoming Edexcel History exams. How is everyone going to revise for these exams? Post your revision techniques below. I'm sure it will help us all in our quests for an A* in GCSE History
    I'm going to do a few past questions and try to learn the dates.
    I got full marks on my CA on the american civil rights movement

    Past papers help a lot. But you also need to know the structure of all your answers for the different questions on each paper.

    1) Write about what the sources tell you about the event mentioned in the question and use your own knowledge to add detail.
    2) Write briefly about the reliability of each source and how it impacts the usefulness. Use nature, origin and purpose (e.g the nature of the source of the source is a cartoon so it may not be reliable since cartoons tend to exaggerate therefore we are skeptical of the usefulness.)
    3) Write a quick conclusion maybe suggesting which source is more useful or that both are useful in different ways.

    Well I'm just making notes of everything and repeating them to myself parrot-fashion, it's just the way I learn. Also I'm abit confused because I thought for International Relations, you have to learn from 1943-91, but someone in my year said that you have to learn from 1918...

    I think for the old spec there was a choice between world war relations and cold war relations but they've updated it so it's only 1943-91

    Sorry if this isn't helpful but isn't the last question always something about the impact international relations? So I'd recommend just practising writing about how each main event impacted on international relations, whenever you're revising a certain topic always have that on your mind: "How did this event impact international relations?"
    I don't have predictions sorry because I think you can choose from a few bullet-pointed topics anyway...hope this helps in any way :/

    The spec changed slightly from first teaching 2013, so only the 2015 are relevant to us it's annoying but we just have to deal with it unfortunately

    I think the last question will be in between the dates 1945-56 but in the early period for sure.
    Because last year it was 78-87

    i believe the specimen paper was the early dates so i think it may be events during the 1960s
