Need reassurance! OCR history paper (from last Thursday) watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey everyone, just need some reassurance! I am predicted an A* in history and won the history award this year but only got a C in my mock. I think I messed up my actual exam too. In ther question asking if Greek or Renaissance medicine was more important, i wrote about Pasteur, anesthetics and antiseptics for Renasssiance - tottaly WRONG, I don't know what I was thinking. I did have one or two lines about Harvey which would have been okay, and the stuff about the Greeks would have been too. But have I messed up completely?!

    Gud luck in the rest of ur exams,

    Umm... if i was you don't worry and put it out of your mind the more you worry the more it will effect the rest of your exams, i had the same paper as you but did the question about public health! If i was you focus on the second paper its much more easier to get marks on the source based questions because everything is in front of you and requires only a little background or factual knowledge! What was your coursework worth?
