I'm taking this exam on Wednesday, does anyone have advice for revising the six topics:

How were the Whigs transformed into the Liberals (1846-68)?

What was Gladstonian Liberalism and how successful was Gladstone's first ministry (1868-74)?

How did Disraeli become the Conservative's leader?

What was Disraelian Conservatism?

How successful was Disraeli's second ministry?

How successful were Gladstone's later ministries (1880-85, 1892-95)?

Even if you have found any condensed revision notes online, I would really appreciate a link to them since I can find nothing!

I found using the OCR textbook's revision check-list really helpful for each one of those 6 topics. Do you have the book?
Also, have you got any tips for how to answer the actual questions, the context part isn't the hard part for me I think, it's just getting my writing to the high A level standards I need?

Here are my condensed revision cards - hope they're helpful! Sorry there's so many, but the first 3 files are to do with Disraeli, 4th one is Foreign Policy over the period, next 3 are Gladstone and the last one is just about Whigs/Liberal transformation.

I do, is there a chance you could link me to the check list?

Thank you so much, these will really help me!

Is there a chance you could post the Glad liberalism and Glad's first ministry one again? The file is telling me it is corrupt

Yeah sorry I had a bit of trouble with that file, here it is again. And for the check-list it should be on page 215 (if the book is the OCR History A one).

I found this set of notes; they're quite useful, but at the same time don't go into great detail, so what I did was print them out and annotated them. They also split the notes up into similar sections that you asked about. Hope they help

Thanks, and wow, 85 for 100 UMS! That would be great but I'm worried that's a bit too optimistic:rolleyes:

I did Q4 and Q5 about disraelian conservatism and Disraeli's foreign and imperial policy. thought Q4 was pretty good but Q5 was unexpected and a bit difficult to specifically answer. Grade boundary predictions? About 70 for an A and 83 for full UMS is my guess

i thought Q4 was so hard but i didnt revise topic 6 so had to do it anyway hopefully i got atleast 30 something marks for it, then i did Q5 which was a lot better. Yeah i think around 70-73 will be an A and that sounds about right for full ums. have to wait and see!

Thank you so much for posting those revision notes Bounce! They really helped.

Feel like I passed the paper, found both questions four and five Ok since I hadn't revised topic six so I could't do the third question.
