Hi everyone,

I am in currently revising for Unit 3 of the Edexcel specification for History and am really struggling with writing good essays, especially for the sources question in Section B. I find it really hard to make good use of the sources and how I can tie my own outside knowledge in. Would anyone be willing to share their essays with me so I can see where I'm going wrong? I'm studying the American Civil War but essays on any era would be great - it's not the knowledge I'm struggling with, just putting it down on paper! I am currently at around a B grade but need to get at least an A for my final exam in June so am feeling the pressure!!

Thank you,

Ellen

I can PM you one of my essays on Sunday night if you'd like. It got 32/40 I think, but I can write up the teacher annotations too so you can where I could have improved my answer. It's not on the American Civil War (I would have loved to do that!), but if it's just the source integration you need help with it might be useful.

Just let me know if you'd like me to send it to you!
