Please please please. I'm doing WJEC AS Level Britain 1906 - 1950 and Nazi Germany. However, I honestly don't care if you are not doing my course or exam board. I just need to see essays of A grade quality because I just can't seem to get the exam technique right and think reading A grade essays will help a lot. I'm tearing myself apart here honestly at rock bottom please help!

Preferably high A grades. However any A is fine.

PM me please. Thank you so so so so much to those who do!

I could send you one, but it'll be completely irrelevant to your course. As long as you don't mind, I'll happily do it (it's on Stalin's Russia, I did it last year and it got me 29/30)

You're welcome if you need any further advice on structure, I'll try and help as best as I can. I'm currently doing A2 History which includes Nazi Germany, so if you get stuck, don't hesitate to ask! (Sadly I don't have an essay though) good good

Hi If you could send me that essay too, that would be a great help. As I too struggle with how to write effective essays. Thanks

Ok so this is a general format and can be adapted if you wish

introduction- set out what you intend to argue- essentially give pointers and introduce the notion of historical debate around said topic, lastly always answer the question (to what extent etc..). keep this concise but accurate

Paragraphs- dont make these obscure, start off by making the point you intend to make and then provide the detailed analysis, and then provide any evidence&historical interpretation to support this claim (note for the high grades- detailed analysis and historical interpretation is so so important. Your analysis should be like 'links in a chain, and if there aren't atleast 4 or 5 links then it probably isn't detailed enough)- general rule of thumb for paragraphs is follow PAE (Point, Analysis, Evidence) and lastly keep focus on the question

conclusion- DO NOT introduce any new points, here you are simply tying up your argument and providing a final judgement, (which must not change from your original judgement)

This is a general idea of essay structure i have used before with others and for all purposes meets the 'jumping through hoops' criteria set out by A-level mark schemes
