I am currently doing AS level History. I am enjoying it but for the past two tests I've been getting C's and I really want to push them up to B's and A's. What do you guys think I should do to push these grades up and what sort of structure do you use for these questions? I've talked to my teacher but his explanations weren't clear to me.

We're currently doing Churchill and Napoleon and our exam board is OCR.

You have to be straight to the point (GRADE C students normally take a long time to get to their points or just dont give an explanation on how it had an impact)

always link to the question once you've made a point, like in GCSE English use Point, Evidence and Explanation to answer the question, give specific and concise dates (this is what pushes to a B-A)

Structure can be: in good and bad questions -give good points in separate paragraphs (opening paragraphs with similarly etc etc) and then the the first bad 'in contrast' etc etc.

You could also check the Exam reports which are REALLY handy - they show which sections students are doing weak at maybe u can relate

I went from C to Full marks in the space of 1 essay.

I got a killer essay structure up my sleeve now.
