    i just couldn't concentrate at all, i jus seriously don't know wat happened...

    was question 3 the advertisement? i thought that was the most pointless question. the whole paper was on whether the reform was a success, i mean, what happened to why it was passed?

    the question 3 was about a source which showed a happy girl smiling. the question itself asks something like how far does the source shows about life of children during 1909-1914.it was tricky. well i mentioned, yes, source shows healthy smart kid. This suggests that reforms such as School meals, medical inspection were a success. however it didnt happen so quickly. not everyone benefited and duirng holidays children lost weights because they couldnt afford to buy food. So free school meals was a success during only a school time.

    free school meals were not for everyone u could have also used the source to say that it could be from a rich family and that it was only a minority and also liberal used propaganda top show that times were good for children.

    i said it was not a true representation of all children at this time as some children were living in bad poverty
    briefly mentioned the childrens reforms that were introduced and said that they did help but not too much

    funny .....
    the exam was a bit too easy for the topic but it was still quite hard

    i was on question 5 by time 45mins had gone and i was using the replacement sheets to answer the questions cause i filled up that crappy booklet .

    also the first source i have studied before so that was easy
    the question where you had to compare i think source G AND H that threw me off slightly i knew what i wanted to say but i couldn't work out how to word it

    i wasted 48 hours revising i knew i should have gone to bed earlier
    luckilly the whole thing was on about the children

    you know the source d the painting book thing
    how did you view that cause i think i did it wrong

    bytw source G and c were linked

    I was gonna write something like that, but I flipped it round. Instead I wrote that the fact that the School Meals Act, 1906, and the School Medical Act (or whatever it was, 1907) and the Children and Young Persons Act, 1908, were introduced, meant that a majority of children in Britain (1906-1914) were living in poverty, as otherwise, why would they need to be introduced? So yeah, I said that all children could not be living the like that of the child in the picture, as otherwise, none of these Acts would have been necessary. I also said the girl in the picture looked happy, content, healthy, clean, generally well cared for. But Seebohm Rowntree's report contradicted this idea, especially because in his 1901 published book: Poverty: A Study of Town Life, 52% of all people asked stated that large families were their cause of poverty. I said this insinuated a huge number of children would be living in poverty, and thus, they couldn't be "happy", "content", "healthy" etc. Um, oh yeah, I said that that the advert's purpose was to sell a product, and thus, image was important and that it would not sell as well with a more truthful image. I said the modern day equivalent was when we air brush pictures in adverts, so I said essentially the fact that it was trying to persuade people meant that it wasn't really representative of the truth.

    However, I did say it was truthful to an extent, because of course, some middle class and upper class children would have lived like the child in the picture. But, I said, this was a minority, and thus, no the picture wasn't all that truthful, as a majority were living in immense poverty, hence the introduction of the welfare reforms acts for children.

    Noo! I mean, no it wasn't too bad, but I didn't really enjoy it! I enjoyed the first one, this time around, my hand ached like mad, and my pen just didn't really seem to flow (does that make sense?!). A bit forced I thought. A bit annoyed that only the Liberals came up, because I properly revised the Suffragettes/Suffragists as well. Also, I hoped that the reasons why the reforms were introduced would come up and they didn't really. Also, what did people say for that question about which one was more trustworthy? I think I badly messed up because the first one was a report produced by some independant body for the Liberal government, but for some reason, I think I went off rambling that it was biased because it was produced essentially for/by the Liberal government and that it's purpose was to gain support for the reforms. But now I'm thinking it's the complete opposite, independant report should mean it's not biased eh?

    Oh, and is it just me or did everyone rush the last one? I literally put a mini paragraph for each source!! There wasn't all that much to write. Oh, and the one about why they said what they said; it was worth like 9 marks, but I was thinking, if I only focus on why, which you're supposed to, there's really not all that much to write. It was the Lloyd George speech, and the Mrs. Green one. Essentially, he wrote supportively because he was a leading Liberal, and she wrote against because children were her main priority, and she was trying to push to get even better reforms for them. I mean, I elaborated, but still wasn't much scope I thought.

    Finally, for the very first one, could someone explain what they put? I didn't think it was hard, but I could see two angles in it and went quickly with my first viewpoint on it....I don't want to find out I'm wrong. Reassurance please.

    lol, mine is opposite to yours, i said source B was less reliable as it was made by the commitie who were against the liberals while source C was made by an outsider who had nothing to do with the reform so was more neutral
