    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.Attachment 403027Attachment 403029

    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
    Yep that's correct, ensure your structure is flexible so it can fit around what those darn examiners put in the sources. However, your'e on the right track!

    When writing a para you are aiming to show how the sources are support and challenge the view in the question. Therefore you have a side which argues for the view in the question which requires you to cross reference the relevant sources and evidence in them and also requires you to do the same for the other side of the argument.

    For example: "Did women's personal lives change significantly"

    FOR: Sources 11 and part of 12 show they did change (x paragraphs or so)

    AGAINST: Sources 13 and part of source 12 show they did not change (x2 paragraphs).

    ALWAYS REMEMBER - Your counter argument should not be as well supported and focused on as the 'for' argument, 'play down' and make the counter argument seem insignificant by actually evaluating it.

    could you post some points on women please? dont have many :/ thanks!
    I've just got the fact that women were challenging gender inequality by wanting to change their role in society but also wanting to save their country -

    you could mention the WSPU - women's social political union and in 1915 they had a well supported march on their 'right to serve' in London demanding their right to serve their country in the war effort and changing traditional women's roles

    you could mention all the organisations such as

    - VADS
    - army nursing services
    - WLA
    -FANYs
    - WAACS
    - WRNS
    - WRAF

    Generally they made a great effort but many of these organisations were exclusive and not many women were participating to make a full impact e.g. the FANYs as there were only 116 in Britain and France by 1918...

    also women were paid considerably less than men
    2/3 of women had to give up their jobs by 1921
    1/6 of women widowed

    but there was a 22.5% increase in women working from pre war to post war

    also women did gain suffrage in 1918 (over the age of 30) perhaps due to their huge effort in war.

    these are just a few points u could make , sorry if I haven't developed ..

    I'm really confused about the structure of the 40 marker. Is it an argument for and then against, then within each paragraph we should cross reference between all three sources?

    40 marker's tend to be for and against. How you can cross reference the sources depends on what is included within the sources as ultimately you base your cross referencing on them. But, you do cross reference in both A and B questions.

    Hey guys
    Anyone doing Early British History - henry viii?
    How do you feel about that? Confident or not? Is there some sort of pattern and can we have some predictions?
    I really hope the early period sort of Anne Boleyn or the later dissolution of the monasteries comes up x

    Thatcher and Atlee are the most important PM's because they really changed the face of Britain.
    Just try and do 20 mins of them each.
    Exam is at 2:00pm we have a lot of time!
    Good Luck

    How many paragraphs would you guys recommend for the 20 and 40 markers?

    With 20 I'm fine...

    It's just the 40 markers.

    * For and against assertion posed by the question in each paragraph
    * Start each paragraph with own knowledge/argument then integrate sources and cross-reference to develop, add weight to argument.
    * end argument referring back to question and again with source integration.

    How many paragraphs would you guys recommend? excluding intro and conc
