    Hi,

    I am currently taking a two year course in Edexcel History and at the end of my AS year, I received an overall B grade with my British History being an 'a' and 4 marks off maximum and my Russian history just coming to a 'd' which made me scrape a B overall. I resat the exam in the January and then came out with an E. Furious with the outcome, I called my paper back and now see where I went wrong. I just can't tend to grasp the way of wording the essays and really desire at least a C in Russia to get an A overall.

    Can anyone help? Anyone having the same problems? I think its the sheer amount of content which is dragging me down a little, it is so much to study.

    What period are you studying? The tsars, Stalin?
    Fuedalism to Democracy (1881-1924) and Stalin's Russia (1924-1953)

    Been doing a lot of revision for it, this is the third time I'll be sitting the exam though, just really hope I get a good question this time around.
