    Been wondering same thing but not on a gap year, probs best to ring up or go in because there is an online login thing for HAT but your school has the details and access to it I'm pretty sure

    Last year it was about average 58 for everyone who sat it, 64 for everyone interviewed, and 68 for everyone who got in, and its probably never too far from that.

    Practice technique and twenty, twenty and thirty in three sections is doesn't sound THAT high

    Yeah who know but check the mark schemes yourself too cause that really helps. And good luck! I guess they're pretty soon now?

    i wouldn't write an intro, our history teacher said there was no point because there isn't a real argument going through the piece. Write roughly about 1.5-2 sides i'd say

    Anyone here doing the HECO question? Also, what titles are people doing for the submitted work? Are you just using an old piece or writing a new one?

    Well, I read the Second Treatise, which presented perhaps the most (classical) liberal version of the Social Contract out there.
