Is anyone else doing this exam.
If so, how are you revising for it, and have you got any predictions, in terms of questions that are likely to come up ?
If theres any A * historians out there , any tips would be appriciates (or any essays i could look at): )
I'm doing this too, it's the one i'm dreading for haha I just hope the questions are in my favour.
The past questions have been on Lloyd George 1918-22 and the Conservatives 1918-64 and reasons for their defeat 1918-45. There's only been one Labour question, so I'd expect one of them and possibly something on housing/welfare state, maybe another Lloyd George!

Yes! I'm so freakin pleased there's a thread for this exam! I've finished all my revison for history, so I'm just going over stuff at the minute, but I need an A* so I'm feelin' a bit of pressure!
As you all know the questions are 45 markers so they're going to be huge, but there hasn't been anything on Churchill or social impacts of WW2 or consensus politics post 51 so I guess something could come up there. I am literally praying for a question between 51 & 64, prayin'!
