    use how much marks the question is worth as a guideline.

    Spend minimum 25 minutes on the last question - maybe even do it first. That is priority

    max 5 minutes on the outline question

    spend max 15 minutes on the source question

    max 8 minutes for the key features question

    spend max 20 on the importance question

    yes it is. for the third question?

    why would you need a conclusion when you're analysing them separately? You wont get any more marks if you compare them, which is what the conclusion would be doing

    all you do is split the event into three sections:

    the cause
    what happens during it
    and the effects

    you'd start of by saying the first key feature is and talk about the cause of the event

    the second key feature is describe the event

    the final/third key feature is and talk about the effect of it

    remember to include stats

    Idk then, you could probably get away with getting one A in one of the exams and still get an A* overall. In the Controlled assessment I got 96 UMS. Damn A* in all exams is going to be very difficult :P. In the mock exams, I only managed to get an A in Germany and scraped an A* in Britain. Which exam do you think is the hardest out of the 3?
    Definitely International relations!

    I would say Britain, purely because I want sources questions to burn in hell.

    This is what we were given by the school and I did a mock according to it for which I received an A*. I appreciate your advice but I don't want to chance it.

    LOL, write them in your own words

    its really simple, you dont need to quote or embelish your answer. It is only worth two marks so literally just write two points

    Good luck to you too .
