Hey guys, I just finished my English Lit Coursework (2000 Words) and I found it really straight forward and I got full marks on the first draft, but now I'm a little rattled with my History Coursework (4000 Words), because the mark scheme isn't exactly very clear in pointing out where marks are achieved. With my English Lit it was a case of going through the mark scheme and just ticking off every technique I had used, but this method doesn't seem to work very well for History. Here are the techniques that I'm doing already:
My question is To what extent were individual Civil Rights Leaders responsible for the improvement of African American's lives in Ameica, between the years 1900-2011.
- Providing a balanced argument with my own clear personal opinion and a conclusion summarizing my overall view.
- A range of historical events mentioned, with critics/contemporaries opinions from books on the subject. Used in a way to back up my points.
- Mention some critics/contemporaries who disagree with my overall opinion and then explain why I disagree.
- I have defined the term "improvement" in my introduction.
- No spelling/grammatical errors throughout.
Is this enough for an A*? Anyone else here who has achieved an A* in the past do you think this is enough? Is there any technique were I might gain more marks? Thanks
