Is there anybody doing this exam? Could do with some tips on how to structure answers to the two questions - I'm fine w/ knowledge, just terrible with technique. Got a C for the paper last year (overall B) and I need an A so at least a low A in this exam is a must!

Wolsey? Have never come across him in my revision. What years are you covering?

Thanks for the link! Not entirely sure what will come up to be honest. For Elizabeth I'm hoping it will be foreign policy because that's where I have the most to talk about. I would guess that you are doing a different topic to me though. I'm doing 1588-1629 (Elizabeth, James & Charles).

Are knowledge of dates particularly important for this paper? Can't find them mentioned in the mark scheme.

Good to know! Yeah I know main ones (i.e. start & end of wars and key economic issues) but learning everything in between would be impossible! From the A grade answers that I've seen dates don't seem to be too important anyway.

Yeah, if you don't put the date they just assume you know it, if you put the wrong date they might ignore the whole of your point on the basis they think you don't know when it was.
