    thank god!!!

    omg i had like half a page agreeing with the question
    i put how the war cost 200 million pound, supported fact that 800 million national debt
    said how the conservatives who won a landslide victory in khaki election (own knowledge haha) had to pay the debt off, meant that even if they wanted to they couldn't implement social change (****)
    also said that i knew that taxes did increase throughout the war

    then like 4 pages for agruing w question
    put how source 5 mentioned the 'unhealthy' state of recruits, mentioned how 37% were rejected from army
    then mentioned how it led to the medical inspections act 1907 (written about in source 6)
    then mentioned the school meals act providing 150,000 meals
    then mentioned the National Insurance act of 1911 that showed that even tho they had such a huge national debt, it didn't stop the govt from social change
    then mentioned how in early 1900s old age pensions act was passed contrary to the view in source 4

    conclusion
    obvs boer war encouraged social reform

    what did you write? felt i was repeating myself over and over haha

    hope we did haha, did you feel like you didn't have enough own knowledge tho, coz it was such a small part of what we've studied ahah.

    for A, can't really remember tbh, i'm a bit worried because it was an easyish question so probably everyone wrote the same points

    what did u write for A?

    People who did women's suffrage: what did you say about the provenances for the sources in the 20 mark essay? We all thought that there was nothing interesting in them as to whether a source was one-sided or not...
    I argued their usefulness is questionable as all attempt to promote and demote the specific cause - It being women's war work improving the status and opportunities of women. Therefore, it is high likely and unsurprising that such views were expressed by all 3 sources.

    THEY USED A REFERENCE FROM PUNCH FOR THE FIRST TIME! I WAS LIKE WHAAAAAA!!!!... Then I remembered they were pro-female emancipation!

    I did the British Politics E1 paper and I basically didn't write a conclusion! I thought I had way more time, so I just wrote one side in favour of the question, one side against but didn't actually come to a conclusion. In other words, I DIDN'T ANSWER THE QUESTION. So angry with myself.

    Do you think I'll lose loads of marks for not having a conclusion?

    Yeah that's exactly what I was saying to a friend of mine.. I had such little own knowledge for social reform...for part A I remember ending with 'overall the sources largely support the view that senior commanders were incompetent during the Crimean War'... I was all over the place tbh don't remember it either

    Hats what i want to say, i didn't manage to finish my conclusion for part A so will i actually get any marks or should i count that question as completely irrelevant and to considered it "unanswered"

    You will miss out marks for not having a conclusion and your judgement will not be included. Unless you made it clear in the introduction you may not lose as many marks, but you will be discredited... But not by much, the examiners are sympathetic that the time frame is intense and tough so don't worry too much.

    Hey man, how did you find the Womens suffrage questions overall? Haha yeah the punch source was nice but I tried to see if there was a more complex message behind it.....some of the phrases were quite weird but I guess thats just because its a satirical magazine, I kind of assumed they were saying womens work improved during the war since they are pro-suffrage.

    Did you do the b question on the property acts?

    I feel like this too. I did the Gandhi question B and I felt like I focused mainly on the 1920-22 Civil disobedience campaigns, dont think i was diverse enough the question said 1919-1930, couldnt think of anything else that happened during then lol

    I don't think so, as long as you include provenance In some form you should be able to get full marks still, I talked about the years for some and who wrote it for others, just depended on the source
    Oh okay thanks for the reply

    That's impressive! I struggle to write that fast and by the end my handwriting is virtually unreadable! I only did around 2 for part A, spent too much time on B and left myself with 10 mins for A
