    Hmm well Unit 2 is slightly different. As Q1 is source based and Q2 is combination of the two.

    I can PM you writing technique on this if you wish. Even if you know the knowledge you can still get a U if you dont know how to write it. I plan to go into much more depth in this help page later though.

    I'm not sure what they are called, but I just finished my AS year now and we did U.S. Civil Rights from 1945-74, U.S. Foreign Policy in South East Asia from 1945-74 and 'Conflict and Consensus: Post-war British Politics up till Thatcher's demise. I didn't revise well enough so I need to resit the British politics module.

    In September we're starting up on the English Civil War(s) and Post-war African history: independence and African nationalism etc.

    In that paper your technique is probably more important than the knowledge. I can PM you stuff on technique if you wish?

    Unit 1. I think it was the one about power, belief and conflict... does it matter if yours was different? surely the structure of the argument would be the same??
