    Any predictions for the section B question of the changing role of women?
    Also, does anyone know the section B questions from Jan 13 or June 12? I am resitting from Jan 12 so i am trying to work out what is more likely to come up!

    I think we will get a work opportunities question and education, or we will get a suffrage question. I doubt marriage and all that could come up after Jan, as well as the political parties.

    Jan 13 I remember the liberal one I did was.
    Do you agree with the view that the Liberal Government hindered the cause of women's suffrage in the years before the war? something like that

    and I think something about the angel in the house losing its relevance

    Thanks! Really hoping that a suffrage question comes up and I wouldn't mind education either!
    Wouldn't like one on the war or trade unions though

    Same, my suffrage knowledge is fantastic, in the end of the essay I can be really evaluative placing the NUWSS head to head against the WSPU, or suggesting that both methods were too extreme on both sides of the coin. With work opportunities/war/(ESPECIALLY trade unions) I really feel like I'm just splatting out facts and saying therefore this led to more work opportunities lol.

    Q(a) I hope is on something common and easy to write about

    (b) A very broad suffrage question perhaps 1900-1920 would be astonishing, since 1900-1910 has being done before, they may chose to do 1910-1920. Anything beyond 1920 though is a little fiddly. Really hope I get an A in this resit

    I'm hoping question A is fairly easy. Because I did this exam last Jan I'm feeling unconfident that I will even pick up half marks never mind go from a B to an A!!!
    Good luck Fingers crossed it is on the suffrage movement!

    My only worry is that they could put the charistim question as a 20mrkr....leaving me exposed to doing badly on the 40mrkr.....its unlikely but could happen.....

    I was told you could do it if it helped in some way strengthen your argument (in the sense of - Source A says this... this is accurate because it was written by... which means..., as well as this - I also know that ....) or am I talking b******ks

    It's okay to write a brief sentence but don't go into any depth as the examiners don't credit provenance in a (b) question.

    My teacher thinks role of women as WW1 - which would be alright.

    I think its likely a home front question comes up as they haven't since January 2012

    In theory it shouldn't come up for a 20 marker again, as it has done for the last two papers. I hope so anyway, would like it for the 40 marker for sure.

    That would be nice. I wouldn't mind propaganda, or Nightingale on either A or B.
