    Hi,

    I'm doing Edexcel GCSE History where I have three papers:
    1. Nazi Germany (in-depth study)
    2. History of Medicine (in development)
    3. Selected Topic - Surgery

    In all the history essays and mocks that I have done I constantly getting Bs. At the beginning of Year 10 I was looking at getting an A*. But with the sort of progress I have made I am now looking at an A. But I believe I can still get an A*.

    But the main thing is I don't know what I need to get an A*/A. What skills do I need to show? Can you give me any tips or advice?

    I think i'm quite good at essay writing, its only in history I get Bs. I get A/A*s in essays for other subjects

    Im in same position, Im getting low As atm. Personally I want to try and get an A*. I guess its mainly down to analysis etc. Look at mark schemes see what they are asking for.
