    How did everyone find it??

    I didn't think the questions were too difficult but tbh they were not what I was expecting at all!

    I did 2 and 3 so Social Reform 1918-1951 (That one was a tough one - so much content to write about in 45 minutes!) and then Conservative dominance 1951-1964 (I liked this one although struggled a bit for historians :/ I managed to add in what I knew about post-war consensus as another factor which I was quite pleased about haha along with Weakness of opposition and also strong leadership of cons/their other policies rather than just the economic policies that lead to their dominance)

    I done Q1 on Macdonald and Q3 on Conservative dominance. Q3 was a dream question, so much to discuss, can make so many synoptic links. Need 72/90 overall for an A*.

    I did Q1 and Q2, found it ultimately okay overall, I think the MacDonald one was okay overall but like Harriet said, the broad based question was huge, barely had enough time to finish my conclusion.

    Ikr there was so much to write :/

    I think my answer was okay but not sure if I messed up a bit on structure :/ I ended up doing it government by government rather than factor by factor as a couple of my other friends did sooooo :/

    I thought Q3 was quite a nice one tbh but I couldn't think of many historians... who did you use??

    72/90 jeez I'm just hoping to have got an A XD

    I didn't use that many. Included different interpretations though. Seemed to be writing forever on that one. My potential grades are mad: needed a D on the exam to get a B overall but needed 100ums in exam to get an A and 109 for an A*

    How do you know what grade you need in the exam in order to get say an A? I got an A* in my coursework and a B last year but I retook

    Because standard UMS for an A is 320. You need 320 plus 90% of A2 for an A*.

    Yes I understood that, I meant how did you work out that you needed a D in the exam in order to achieve a B grade overall? Also for this course you only need 82% for an A* because the grade boundaries are so low. It's usually 36/45 for an A*

    I added my AS UMS and my Enquiry UMS together. Came to 220. In June 2015, 60 UMS equated to 36/90 which was a D and would have a B overall. Standard A grade is 320. So therefore, need 100 UMS- 65/90 on June 15 paper but need minimum 107 UMS- about 70 marks for an A* as its 90% of A2 plus the standard 320. Aimed for 72/90 to be safe.
