    when doing history, i use a timeline showing all of the important events. this helps to organise information.
    Do you do that on paper or using revision cards?

    If my teacher is to be believed I got 50/50 but I think he overmarked me haha! It'll probably be moderated down...

    I'm so nervous for this exam because I haven't properly started revising yet :/

    Isn't it 4000 words between both pieces? So an average of 2000 for each part?

    I've no clue how I did well on it either. I'm hoping the exam goes well because it's such a lot of content!

    Oh I see!
    Id say regularly link back to the question, cross refer between sources, analyse their origin, use at least 3 analytical explanations with quotes from the sources for each para. Do about 4 paras and make sure your conclusion answers the question with a valid explanation.

    What do you mean by 3 analytical explanations for each para? 3 sources analysed?
