    yep same but I also included about securing the threat of pretenders and
    preventing rebellion!!??
    Yeah that's right cos the treaty of etatples with France for example stopped war beck from being sheltered there thus allowing the capture of him and therefore avoiding any further threat

    I actually messed up my entire AS History exam. I misread question 2 as Henry VIII and his foreign policy and didn't find out until after my exam that it was in fact, a question on Henry VII. Damn me, misreading and confusing Roman numerals, there goes Oxbridge hopes, I guess haha

    Actually they were.
    Royal Authority -> due to Cromwell's actions. I argued that his break with Rome was in fact to support his role as kings minister, and extend his Royal authority. Rather than to abandon the catholic faith, still linking it to the question.
    Humanism -> This one is further abstract. I referenced the new thinking to show the way society was changing under Henry VIII, I showed that Henry had key humanists in his government. Yet he never removed these -> to an extent, shifting towards new methods of thinking and religion other than Catholicism.
    Protestantism-> Fairly obvious, changed religious ideas.

    Did anyone mention, with regard to agreeing with the statement and that his foreign policy was motivated by international prestige, that entering into a marriage alliance with the Aragon's, a European powerhouse, perhaps infers that Henry was to some extent motivated by international prestige? As it further consolidated his power whilst simultaneously gaining recognition for the Tudor dynasty within Europe? Valid point??

    yh, I argues that Henry constantly changed his policies towards Catholicism and Protestantism to the relative "gain" they would give him at that certain period of time. For example the six articles was issued as a result of the treaty of nice....This in turn made him appear more catholic and would have enhanced his reputation with these countries decreasing the risk of an invasion.

    And if your conclusion's weak/non-existent, how many marks would you lose?

    Yes I think I said that and that's why when Arthur died although initially Henry wanted Prince Henry to marry Catherine, after Spain became politically unstable with the Castilian Succession crisis, Henry didn't really want Henry to marry Catherine and said something about it never happening in his lifetime.

    Eurgh but my own knowledge question was so badly structured I contradicted myself so much with trade and stuff and waffled badddly..

    I suppose that'd depend on the question. In Section B it's really important to have a conclusion, but apparently, at least based on what my teacher said, the interpretation 20-mark question doesn't necessarily need a conclusion. I'd say that in Section B you could lose something like five or six or potentially more (maybe) marks if you didn't conclude, especially considering the questions that tell you to assess. If the conclusion's weak, then it's still better than having no conclusion.

    Sorry if this fills you with dread.

    Don't know if this is a valid point but I put the discoveries and expeditions of John Cabot in 1496/1497 could show expansionist aims of Henry VII, following in the footsteps of the Spanish and Portuguese, so could therefore he wanted to gain international prestige through English expansion, would they credit this?

    Essentially I just banged on about how he wanted a secure dynasty and concluded it was more important than international prestige.

    Thanks

    Wait there was a 20 marker?

    Ah, I see... This is a different paper to the one I faced yesterday.

    The paper I took featured interpretation questions (a 10 and 20 marker) on the Mid-Tudor crisis (1547-1558) and an own knowledge question (20 marker) regarding either Wolsey's domestic policy or the seriousness of the challenges faced by Henry VII.

    Oh phew I got slightly worried there haha
    Original person about the conclusion I don't think it's going to cost you 5 marks out of 25 just because you didn't write a conclusion- as long as you justified your paragraphs throughout!
    My penultimate paragraph was the worst but meh not much I can do about it now.
    Just hope next week's paper is as manageable as this one!

    Remember that we will get a choice of two essay questions but the two types of questions (interpretation and essay) will be on the two different kings. So if the interpretation one is on Henry VII then the essay will be on Henry VIII and vice versa.
    That's what I thought and ended up writing the 25 mark question on Henry VIIIs foreign policy not Henry VII 😂

    Sucks as well, after writing out the whole answer, it will be alright. You can still end up with a high B or maybe even a low A if you ace Russia and the first question on the Tudor paper. Make sure to speak to your college though, I did and they've already said they would help me out in terms of UCAS and my uni references.
