Right, I know that the answers are all in the paper because it's the source based paper. So what sort of things should I actually revise, as the historical information is in the paper (I don't get SPaG marks because I have a scribe)? Is it basically just look at a few sources and see what I come up with?

YES! Finally someone who's doing the 1890-1918 topic

Erm I think it's a good idea to revise various attitudes towards... things. Like female suffrage, DORA, stuff. Because there may be questions on "does this source prove this thing was popular" and you have to use your own knowledge to say why/why not. Also in the big final questions where it asks if all the sources support this statement, it's probably a better idea to use your own knowledge to make the points and use the sources to back yourself up.

So what I'm saying is. Revise everything. Which is unhelpful.
But it does help to know your stuff. Particularly dates, as the sources will be dated and you'll have to know what stuff in particular is happening at that time.

Having rambled on, I'm not sure myself, I'm just glad to find a kindred historian who isn't doing the later period :')

I mean we were expecting to have questions on Women's Suffrage but we also knew that they might try to change the order to make it less predictable so though we were caught off guard by the questions on propaganda and censorship it wasn't too tricky. Hopefully I'll get an A/A* as did most of my classmates hoped for themselves.

Yeah and I would've loved to have gone to the battlefields for the centenary because the government was picking 2 students from each school but it coincided with GCSEs so my teacher said that we couldn't be picked, it would have absolutely been an amazing experience.
