    Hello, I will be taking A Level history exam in the upcoming Oct/Nov series.

    I was wondering if there are any 'model answers' from students who achieved A* or A...

    I am kind of confused of how to basically 'write' my essay, and am eager if somebody can offer me a 'guideline' to help me in getting a high score.

    Sry for late reply,

    I am taking CIE A Levels...
    Generally for the essays I would write for history (as I have not done CIE but edexcel) is intro, answering the question in first line, a sentence of own knowledge on the subject and other arguments that also could be made for that question. 4 paragraphs answering the question in the first line of each, with the most important factor/point for the question in the first paragraph and 2nd in the 2nd etc. In the paragraphs cross-reference for a source paper, own knowledge should be throughout and analysis of all points made. Papers that are not source based all own knowledge and really go to town on your analysis and in all types of papers link paragraphs. But remember, DO NOT TELL A STORY or EMBED QUOTES LIKE IN ENGLISH. Keep on answering the question throughout the essay. In the conclusion, sum up all points that you have made and make a decision about the question, but add no new points in your conclusion.

    Hopefully helps a bit
