It would be best to revise Weimar Germany, as well as the Treaty of Versailles, Steps to war, i.e. Appeasement, as well as the League of Nations.

Oh right, I have always felt that the course I am doing has an edge over your syllabus, due to more interesting topics. But each to their own I say!

Hi, I would advise you to revise everything apart from 'Public Health from c1350 to Present Day.' In my opinion that section is useless as the question for it, in 6(a) and 6(b) is always the most difficult. So by this, I would recommend you learn Medicine and Treatment (c1350-c1750) (c1750-c1900) (c1900 - Present Day) and Medicine and public health from Roman Britain to c1350.

For questions, me too, I'm not particularly sure what will come up but be sure to revise key individuals, Galen, Hippocrates, Florey & Chain, Alexander Fleming, Florence Nightingale/Garrett Anderson, Robert Koch & Louis Pasteur. Also learn key events/discoveries like the NHS in 1948, Magic Bullets, Germ Theory etc.

Hope I helped and good luck tomorrow!

Don't forget to get through the paper quickly so that you have enough time to write out the 10 marker in detail, and I would recommend doing the knowledge 10 marker as its reasonably shorter. Also consider that the 10 marker might be on factors that helped developments.

In Edexcel, there are only 4/9/12/16 markers! But yes, do write in as much detail as possible; use key dates while giving a judgement.

I answered question 5 and for the Edward Jenner one I said that doctors opposed his vaccination because they were only interesting in getting money from the inoculation process. On the other hand I argued that most doctors used the wrong dosage so killed their patient thus some people decided to have Jenner's vaccination. I also talked about the fact that people thought using animals for medicinal purposes was unethical so many people did not have the vaccination until the vaccination was made free.

That sounds good, for the 2nd question did you talk about the decline of the church in the renaissance and if so what did you write?
