    Hey, I recommend getting the revision book, I got mine from Amazon, it's pretty good quote wise. Is your textbook Russell Ress's one? I haven't even started looking at it yet lol.

    Yea, we have his textbook! It literally wrecks my head so I don't plan on revising from it! Do you just plan on learning quotes from the revision book then?

    Get the one CCEA has actually written its a but more manageable.
    Does your teacher not give you the quotes? There are quite a few in the textbook you could just learn off plus you don't need to know that many in comparison to A21!

    Nope, when he actually turns up for class, he tells us that it's up to us to find quotes :/ Is that just the revision guide? What topic are you doing for A21? I'm doing the clash of ideologies!

    Ah I done Ireland unionism and nationalism for as1.
    Yea the 'ccea student unit guide' it is, gives you examples and stuff at the back aswell as the the notes. It is the best thing to get in my opinion, our school give them to us so we didn't have to buy them.
    And gives quite a lot of quotes as well.

    I think civil war or the Anglo Irish war will come up as an essay but home rule is up every year so it's reliable
    I hope home rule is the essay question tho!

    I get so confused with all of them! :L how many quotes do you actually intend to learn? Also do you think there is any chance of the Free State coming up or an essay solely on the Government of Ireland Act? Completely dreading this exam :afraid:

    Yea I really want home rule too, like why unionists opposed it, or fall of IPP, if anything else comes up as an essay I'm screwed! :L Nope we're lucky if our Irish history teacher turns up to class, never mind actually helping us! :/ He has warned us though that there is a possibility that one of the essays could be on the Irish Free State For the source questions do you usually write more for the second one? Because every time I've done the source questions I write more for the first one and I don't think your supposed to :confused:

    Yea fall off IPP and rise of Sinn Fein, I'd be happy.
    Our teacher told us to spend 25 minutes on the first one and 35 on the second.
    Think second is meant to be longer than the first but only about half a page I think "/ is say try and write more fur the second since there's more marks for it
    Yea I think there's a chance one of the essay will be on the truce or civil war "/ although Northern Ireland is a pretty short nice wee essay!
    How'd your other history paper go?
