    i did the Philip II question, sources were good, but the timing was very tight. Some people at my school did not finish. Are you doing the Tudor rebellions option on friday?

    ahuh, coups/demos etc, and the different causes. the class last year seemed to do very well in that paper, just have to remember to be 'synoptic'.
    Our teacher has this useful thing - 118 YRS, 5+ [MONARCHS], 11+ [rebellions], 1485-1603
    may help you remember in the exam, may not, good luck anyway!

    yeh the essay question about commans n co-operation was ok..but i am having doubts about how i approached it.

    can anyone clarify if we were meant to talk about the conflict between queen n commans aswell? like a balanced argument.

    the passages were ok i guess but yeh..tight for time.
