    Yeah it was a really nice exam! Same, if not I am definitely resitting. Although apparently because it was an 'easy' exam the grade boundaries are going up:/

    I got a B for Unit 1 Edexcel GCE History 75 UMS... now I'm doing Unit 2 Option B2 (I think) Poverty and Public Health 1830-75, I think it comes under the British Political History title. I'm aiming for 85 UMS so it averages out to an A

    I'm fine with the 20 marker, however for the 40 marker, I need some structure tips. Like do you, lets say 3 paragraphs about sources, cross reference etc and and then own knowledge? Or do people generally interweave the two? And does anybody have tips for a strong conclusion, mine are always generic because all I do is sum the previous points I made which are boring :/

    See my structure on page 1 here:http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...438&p=42650553

    Interweave your knowledge. Aim to put in about 2-3 pieces of own knowledge each paragraph. To make your conclusions a higher grade, if the question is say "how far do sources 1 and 2 disagree with source 3..." then state which source (1 or 2) disagrees with source 3 the most, and why.

    It's interesting how they are similarly themed though (around economics). Good luck though, I'm sure you'll do fine, the civil rights and tsarist russia questions went very well for me
    Good to hear

    I think's what's even more interesting though is that the Stalin questions were only based on Section 1 and 2, normally there is one question from section 1-2 and 1 from section 3-4. Just shows you really do need to learn everything, no shortcuts!

    Hi,

    Is the edexcel course for history any good? Is it rigorous, or easy? Any difference between edexcel history and OCR/ AQA?

    Yeah I don't think anyone did the MLK/black power one. Loads of people did Korea I was one of 4 people that did Vietnam.

    What did you write about? I did:
    -Human and financial costs weren't that important due to economic power of US
    -how some think that it was opposition to the war, with the invasion of Laos and cambodia, fragging and drugs. But ended.the paragraph saying it wasn't important due to Nixon's silent majority idea
    -how USA.can't win.the war due to guerilla tactics, morale of NVA and stuff. I said this was.the most important
    -Sino soviet split and how the cold war died down, and the communism vs capitalism ideological battle died, then mentioned how US public wanted to deal with domestic and not overseas issues.

    I think I wrote far too much evidence in the whole essay and didn't explain why it was important, I wrote every single form of opposition and immoralities of the war regrettably. I think I definitely got a B though

    What was your plan like? How'd you think it went?

    Well our teacher told us to split each monarch up into
    • The Institutions of Government - including the role of the Monarch
    • Parliament, the Privy Council and the Monarch
    • Relations between the Monarch and Parliament
    • Factions and favourites around the Monarch
    • Economic Policy
    • Religous groups and Religious policies
    • Foreign Policy


    I also think I'm going to practise some 20 mark questions because I hope to get most my marks for the exam on that question

    Yep, it was from 1618-1648. James' reign started in 1603 and ended in 1625 so he got some of it.

    Anyone doing The Changing Position of Women/ The Suffrage Question on wednesday and have any guesses as to what might come up??? Also, is it necessary to learn exact dates or do you just need to know vaguely about when they happened??

    It's pretty important you learn dates, the exam you don't necessarily need to learn it in great detail, but you have to know what it is and what its effects were, how significant it was.

    Do you know what came up in January and last June? So I can focus my revision less around those topics

    You have to be clear on your overall argument, make sure that you use your own knowledge is able to somehow further that argument, whether your own knowledge is proving the source wrong or extending it.
