    1. oh yeah same! i've been looking at past questions since 2009 and i think you should probably make sure you know your facts coz she has appeared as either a 20 mark or 40mark every year, and theres been about 5/6 questions on Attlee's government so maybe just a bit on him and my teacher has a strong feeling maybe a question on Callaghan could come up
    yeah im hoping that margaret thatcher will be the 40 mark. i just dont know what other governments to focus my revision on.
    im focusing more on the 13 years of when the Conservatives where in government and Callaghan

    I'd do: 3 Paragrapgs - If of course there is enough source evidence, if not vary:

    - Source 11 and 12 cross referencing 3x or so.

    Then for the counter view:

    Source 13 - BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER - There is always at least one source which argues both ways if not more so you can cross reference that source to 13.
    You are really helpful I must say!!!!! so 3 paras meaning 3 of agree with just source 11 and 12 with cross reference and own knowledge .
    Then like 2-3 paras of disagreeing which is source 13 and maybe source 12 and then next para might be source 13 and source 11 contrasting perhaps?

    When doing paras are u just aiming to show similarities or are u meant to show similarities and differences?
    Once again thank you as u the man

    For people doing British Politics: 1945-1990 Consensus and Conflict (not quiet sure if this applies to others sorry)

    Part A to get the full 20 marks you need to:
    -have detailed comparisons of similarities and differences.
    -the provenance needs to be used to explain similarities and differences between accounts and to weigh the evidence
    -sustained focus on 'how far..?'

    AND make sure you mention what type of extract is used for the source, whether its a memoir/diary newspaper article etc.

    Part B to get the full 40 marks for own knowledge:
    - general points with strong focus on the question
    -accurate and relevant supporting evidence
    -integration of sources and own knowledge

    for the rest of the 16 marks:
    -evidence from the sources is selected to support and challenge the view is expressed in the question
    -weighs the evidence of the sources and uses this in reaching an overall judgement

    AND remember not to use the word 'biased' it makes you seem as if you have nothing to say really coz most of the times its quiet clear its biased but yh

    from looking at the past questions since 2009 Margaret Thatcher has come up as a question everytime as a 20 and 40 so maybe focus on that?
    and Callaghan has only been asked once so that could be one too
    those are my main focuses anyways

    Here's an example of an A question which got 18/20. My advice for A questions is to just get straight to the point and compare 2 sources in every paragraph throughout.Name:  ImageUploadedByStudent Room1432068172.910801.jpg

    yh Attlee has been asked 5/6 times, idk i have a feeling that wouldn't come up, but if Attlee comes as the 20 mark and Thatcher as the 40 mark, honestly i will be over the moon

    Crimea is predominantly the A) question, there has been six of them since 2009, whereas to my knowledge there has only been one Boer War A question.

    For the B) question you, statistically, usually get one on Boer and one on WW1. (There hasn't been a paper which hasn't had a WW1 as a B) question as far as I know)

    thats ok, hopefully the part b question is easy i'm fairly consistent with part a but with part b i've had about every grade there is depending on how well i know the topic
