  • just realized that since we get given 6 questions in the exam and we only have to answer two sections (4 questions) we can afford to miss out a third of revision. Since I have realized in the third section of the USA paper only asks questions about the new deal and WW2.

    Have any AS students thought of doing this and have any A2 students already done it? If so was it ok?

I guess you could do that, and only answer Questions 1 and 2. But in my opinion, I wouldn't risk it, just incase one of the other questions is worded really horribly and you don't really understand it. However if you feel EXTREMELY confident on everything but the last section and you've had enough practice on the past paper questions, then go for it.

I was thinking maybe we could all post some practice questions here so it lessens the work for all of us? Just any 12 markers or 24 markers that we've had marked in class, or have done at home, preferably past paper questions

Here's one of mine, I got 24/24 and it is pretty much the same as Question 4 on the January 2011 paper:Name:  ImageUploadedByStudent Room1397644293.740218.jpg

Our teacher didn't bother teaching us ww2 and the new deal for those reasons, he hasn't taught it for 2 years and most his class get high grades.

hope this helps

like it was a good essay and that, but there were 4 hard facts in the whole thing and a lot of it was waffle. Probs a decent A, but not 'perfect'.

Also very long for a 24 minute essay

I'm pretty sure historians viewpoints are not needed, only in other history courses like tudor history etc.

Agreed, we've never been told to include historians' viewpoints in USA.

Apparently these are the questions from last year:

Explain why there was opposition to mass immigration in the years 1890-1914
How far did the rise of big business change the American economy in the years 1890-1914?
Explain why organised crime grew during the 1920s
How far were Republican policies during the 1920s responsible for the Wall Street Crash?
Explain why American foreign policy was isolationist before 1939
How important was Japan's attack on Pearl Harbour in ending American isolationism?

Marking the 24 mark questions is so subjective. The mark scheme is too vague. Even teachers in my school differ in how they mark a 24 mark essay
