I have my GCSE History exam tomorrow on Medicine Through Time (Edexcel). Does anyone have any tips on how to get an A* i.e. PEE Point Structure etc? All tips are appreciated, thanks!

You just have to make sure that you link the source to your knowledge, as in what year it was and what went on in that year, and make sure you explain your points clearly and in ordered paragraphs.

If your exam tomorrow is Unit 1 like me then it is the source paper on Medicine Through Time and Germany. Since it is the source paper you can use your English skills and blag your way through if you really have to

If you need to do some more revision I recommend you have a go with the memrise website - just google memrise, make an account, click browse and then type History of Medicine GCSE, then click the picture of Leonardo da Vinci's vitruvian man and start learning - I've found it really useful. The website has a weird garden metaphor but you quickly get used to it. It's really good for remembering key facts. Hope it's helpful for your exam!

I got an A* last year, look through the Hodder examples (usually on the workbook answers which you can easily find online). Also, in the exam for the source paper, circle things that look interesting to you, and comment on why it's there, significance, time etc etc. Usually in OCR, they like observations that are out of the blue and not common, so it's worth a thought. I hope it's kind of relevant to you because I did OCR, which was also Medicine Through Time. Make sure to also look at the past papers before and the markschemes with it... know all of your facts!!
Good luck with the exam!
