Not seen a thread for this paper so thought I would make one.

Feeling really confident for this paper The advantage being that all you have to do is some source analysis and a little mix of your own knowledge, and you have it in the bag

What did you all get for the CA?

I'm feeling okay about this paper; I'm a bit rusty on killer facts to put into the answers, but I'm not too bad with dates and stuff for Women, as we did a mock in that recently Youth would be fine, but I'm praying that Immigration won't come up Do you have any idea what came up in the January 2013 paper?
And I got A* in my CA, which I was pleasantly surprised with, hehe! What did you get?

I got an A* as welll

January 2013 was young people So the most likely topics which will come up will be immigration or women. I am hoping for women to come up at this point, not to say youth won't come up at all!

Wow, congrats on that A*!
Oh darnit, I was hoping Immigration would come up so I wouldn't have to revise it :unimpressed: xDDDD I'm really hoping women will come up!! It seems more likely now, but it does mean I'll have to relearn the entire Immigration topic to make sure, hehe

I'm doing this exam, I need to do quite well because I got a middle/low A in the last one and am aiming for an A*, but fortunately I got full marks in the coursework so hopefully I can get an A*.

Women is the one it hasn't been for the longest but they might do immigration so it's less predictable - or teenagers but dear god I hope not.

I know, there doesn't appear to many helpful revision sites for this topic, Bitesize doesn't have it. However you can get past papers and mark schemes here, which are really helpful for showing you what examiners are looking for in answers, and the specification which basically lists the things you need to know and gives you an overview of the period. It starts talking about British Depth Study 39-75 on page 30.

I am rooting for Women. Immigration came up on June 2012 and young people came up Jan 2013. Safe to assume women will come up. Still revise for all of them, not worth the risk

Yep, probably women, I'm just worried they'll do one of the others as everyone will probably be assuming it's women. But yeah, no matter since I'll be revising all three anyway

Hopefully that will help me a bit but I think I've found out some things that will help me revise the actual topics themselves but thanks anyway x

My mum found a powerpoint on the Notting Hill Riots and she made a revision guide for the whole of the topic so I'll put the links bellow. Oh, the revision guide won't upload because it's apparently too big but if there's any other way you can think of for me to send it to you and if you want it of course, just tell me and I'll send it to you how ever you want (eg. through email). Hope this helps x

I'm doing the 1939-75 in depth study next year, what is it like? Is the content interesting to you?
I liked Germany a lot better, t'was a lot more interesting. But the British in depth study is honestly piss, not that much to remember at all, and it is all source analysis, which is fun
