    I was about to start a new topic before I saw this!
    I take it you're doing the synoptic Edexcel Chartism paper? (well, the "pick what topic you want paper" but being forced to do chartism). I literally made all my notes on paper 2 days ago; our teacher's absolutely useless, so once more I'm teaching myself
    Do you have any books from any historians? The Eric Evans book is particulary good, its describes everything fairly well, and he's also the chief examiner for the history paper! Basically just find out about the origins, (artisan radical tradiation), the support, the leaders, what they really wanted, the three phases (1836-39; 40-42; 45-48), tactics/organisations, what the government thought of them, whether they actually did "totally" fail, and try to learn a few quotes!!
    If you really need some answers, try this website: http://www.historyhome.co.uk/peel/peelhome.htm Its about Peel (another history topic at A-level) butit has its own section on Chartism which i found very useful. Sorry I can't get my (limited) notes up for you, but I hope the website can help... and the best of luck in the exam!! Remember, its source based, so you can get half the marks easily!! (we all hope!)

    This is a page I found when searching for research ages ago - It seems to have been made by a school for their students as a syllabus to follow and it summaries all the very basic ideas / points! Hope it helps

    Synkronized - I'm gonna try your idea for my panicked revision! A page of notes on each of the following topics:
    Origins
    Causes
    Aims
    Tactics
    Organisations
    Leaders
    Support
    Three Phases
    Success vs. Failure

    I guess I better get started!

    Sparkle.Dremas - Best of luck with that I took my notes outside last night and started trying to put everything to memory... its very slowly getting there, but considering the exam's tomorrow, not fast enough!!
    For the paper I'm guessing (as usual) we have to try and be analytical with facts to back whatever up... wish i could remember more historians quotes mind you... God I hope the examiners having a wonderful -lottery-winning-style day when he marks this!

    I think today I'm gonna spend a few hours going over and over the notes, get the general geist of chartism, then maybe try a past paper tonight? Although, we haven't actually done a single essay this year on chartism, so i may have to plough through by myself answering a past paper with no time limit just to see what has to be done tomorrow... Just remember people, sources sources sources.

    (I'm starting to sound like my good for nothing history teacher! NOO!!!)

    We're all going to do fine and get top grades ... please....

    I appear to have mastered the art of this revision now! Take simple notes (from that school website above) combined with detailed notes from text book by Evans and then brainstorm the basics (and a lil' bit more) of everything needed for each heading Woo! 1 down, 8 to go

    Previous years to us did c/wk but it clashed with English c/wk and it was harder to get an A than in the exam they reckoned, so we've studied 'Representation and Democracy 1830 - 1931' - I guess the two fit together very well really but still...!

    That unit sounds like 2 of mine combined! At least it fits well together I guess... We did chemistry coursework at the same time as history, very stressful lol, but our history teacher told us we've all got at least our target grades, so I got at least a B for the c/w... *please don't moderate that down!*

    Right, I'm gonna go watch another episode of band of brothers (yeah, fill my head with WW2 stuff, total stupidity :p: ) while I have lunch, then its chartism till monday lunchtime!!

    The best of luck to you in all your exams tomorrow (theres a lot of them!)

    I've decided not to, I never remember them by the time we're in the exam and it's not required to get an A. The board's website says that they won't make a 'medicore essay good' and they often have the opposite effect instead! :eek:

    Quick question, but I think you're all revising now anyway Who were Vincent and McDouall? How much detail do we need to know about the individual leaders?
