    Hi,

    I suggest memorising the information within the Edexcel Books it's the best thing you can do, it has enough information. You only need about 6 or 7 pieces of own knowledge to secure top marks on a 40 marker.

    Regards - Gunnarsunn.

    So you only need about 6-7 pieces of own knowledge to get good mark? I don't know but I wrote about 9 pieces and my teacher still says it's not enough. Really confused.

    You would be aiming for about 5 main body paragraphs within a 40 Marker. 3 for your argument and then 2 against or either way depending on the sources and your point of view.

    Normally the model exemplar answers I have seen contain about one piece of own knowledge per paragraph (2 for the argument for), however ALL the pieces are RELEVANT to the SOURCES. For example if the Source mentions something like 'women were constantly constrained by their traditional role' - Here it would be appropriate to talk about Separate Spheres and the Angel in House not women's work and their employment prospects as it specifically focuses on their 'traditional role'.

    All pieces of own knowledge must be relevant to the source and your argument, there is always a trigger which can instigate the inclusion of further own knowledge.

    I have a question on own knowledge, say for example, if the 40 marker was about did women achieve equality by 1900? Could I introduce, the idea of the sexual double standard as evidence of inequality when arguing my point, e.g. George Norton's infidelity was easily forgiven but Caroline Norton's rumoured affair with Lord Melbourne, who had 'alienated his wife's affections' according to George, was taken to court, so her alleged infieldity was blown out of proportion compared to George's, so what I am asking is can I use knowledge that is not a statistic as evidence and does anyone have any predictions for thus year's Women's History Section?
    I would steer away from own knowledge that acts as a narrative. Include key legislative dates - they are more profound and further expansion enables the candidate to emphasise its significance.

    Thatcher's period is a popular topic for the exam and most people take for granted that she will come up but I don't think we should take the chance - prepare for the worst. You never know tho she could come up!!

    Greetings to all on this forum,

    For those of you who are doing "The Changing Role of Women: 1860-1930" exam on Wednesday, do not hesitate or be reluctant to ask me any questions.

    During these last few days, it is crucial that as much prep and explaining is done before the exam.

    Regards - Gunnarsunn.
