Hey guys I've got this exam next month and I'm incredibly worried about the amount of content we need to know.
I've been told that the book is pretty useless when it comes to the example ( it focuses on the Fenians when referring to Ireland but they're only briefly mentioned on the spec for example). So I've been given so many sheets, books and booklets from class all of which I have no idea how to organise (should I go in order of Gladstone/Disraeli, Conservative Dominance, New Liberalism or look at Ireland, Domestic Politics, Economy and Foreign policy from all the periods together?)
I've been making some notes here based on stuff I've gotten in class. They're nowhere near finished but I can PM anyone if they're interested and possibly they could tell me if I need to write more or if I'm missing anything out.
Anyway, how about we get this ball rolling?
I'm taking this exam too in less than 2 weeks now and feel extremely nervous about it. I don't know half of the content partly due to my teacher's teaching methods (talks AT us for hours) but I think it is a relatively difficult exam. If I were you, I'd organise notes on Ireland, Domestic Politics, Foreign policy, Conservative ascendancy and Labour Party etc. and then within these organise it in order of PM.
Thankfully another teacher made some powerpoints on all of the topics. I can send you a link for them if you'd like. I've been going through these the past few weeks, and honestly, if it wasn't for these, I would be failing the course right now.
Also, do you know if there's definitely a question on Ireland every year? Apparently AQA announced this but I'm not too sure.
I literally have to learn the whole syllabus in a week, I would be very grateful if you could send me those power-points!
Have just joined thestudentroom this second, and I'm not sure how you would send them to me? Do I give you my email?
Hey, I'm the same and the exam is so soon! Could I have a copy of those slides too?!
hey guys, exam is relatively soon!! how does everyone feel about it?
my teacher is obsessed in thinking that New Libs and Classical Libs will come up.
I hate to say it but I think the economy will come up too something about the depression will kill me.
I checked some past papers, nothing on Balfour? hmm could that be the short time period question.
I think that organised labour could come up or more than likely the economy. This exam is far too stressful. -.-
My Teacher had a few likely choices: New Liberals, Early foreign policy (Disraeli and 'peace with honour') and something covering early parliamentary reforms, this possibly being the breadth question encompassing the constitutional crisis aswell.
I highly doubt a thematic question will come up on foreign policy again. My guess is the economy (assessment of the Great Depression) or assessing the extent of democracy throughout the period. Is it true that Ireland is guaranteed to come up every year then?
