    I think some people do American West as well, not entirely sure.

    Personally, I do Germany 1919-45 and Medicine Through Time. I'm pretty confident for this exam, just hope we get decent sources!

    My paper 2 (sources paper) is about the Industrial revolution in the 19th century and links with medicine.. I'm thinking John Simon/Edwin Chadwick? Perhaps John Snow? Anyone got an idea of the theme?

    For Paper 2 I think it'll definitely be about the Public Health Acts, John Snow and Edwin Chadwick...but I can't think what else? The topic seems really broad yet there aren't too many main individuals or anything?!

    Bloke who worked with Edwin Chadwick.

    I asked my teacher who she thinks will come up on Paper 2 and she said it could be anything, but John Snow and Edwin Chadwick/John Simon is all she can think...

    I personally feel there will be quite a lot about Public Health on Paper 1 as well. The topic of Paper 2 normally appears quite a lot in Paper 1.

    I think I'll be answering an ancient world essay on Medicine anyway. Probably my strongest area.

    For Paper 2 I'd revise

    John Snow
    John Simon and Edwin Chadwick
    Conditions in the 19th Century and key dates
    Reforms and when things changed etc.

    There has previously been a Paper 2 about John Snow and the Broad street pump, so I think it'll be very unlikely to be him again. Hope it is though.

    Just looking at key things and trying to remember dates and facts about key areas.

    Remember the key dates, how Public health, Surgery, etc differed through different periods, remembering the facts about each key person such as Koch, Pasteur, Lister, Galen, Vesalius, etc

    I paid alot of attention in class-and i had a good teacher, so i 'know' pretty much everything.
    What ive done is written the dates with their respective people and their respective theories/ideas and ive memorised that and keep on writing it out. That way in the exam i know exactly what had happened/what hadnt happened, as context gets you a sh*t load of marks.

    Extremely unlikely. There might be a source showing the state of 19th century public health and smoke in the background or something like. You could comment on The Industrial revolution there. But no, I don't think so.

    I'm thinking Galen could come up, he hasn't done so for a while. That's my only prediction though.

    Honestly, I'm a bit nervous. I really want an A* and this is the last paper (I have already done paper 2 in January).

    Lets hope the questions we get are good!
