Here's the thing, I'm retaking 2 papers (from the old syllabus). And I'm on OCR if that makes any difference.
One of them is Themes in History, where we've done Germany from 1815-1914. The other, we learnt Gladstone/Disraeli but I've just noticed that one of the topics is 'Bismarck and the Unification of Germany'...I read tons on that last year because it was my main preparation for Oxford interviews, and I feel like I could answer those questions much better.
Obviously there's a slight cross-over in that they carry some of the same material, so I was wondering if anyone knows of any rules about which questions from which papers you're allowed to answer? I'm pretty sure there aren't (the theme of the topics is different, just some of the events and material is the same), but if anyone's heard anything different I'd be grateful if you let me know!

Is it 'against the rules' to answer a different question than you've been taught?.. watch

In one of my Religious Studies exams we only learnt 3/4 area's and had to answer them 3 however I had learnt all 4 but got told I had been entered for only the 3 we had learnt so wouldn't get marked if I answered the uncovered topic? Don't know if that was my school just being arkward or? Maybe your teacher could help

No you can answer any question you want on the paper.
