    Hi guys!

    I just thought this might be useful for anyone else studying the course for us to share historiography that we find and to ask any questions that arise.

    Yep, saving them for closer to the exam though, to do under timed conditions and compare my marks against the grade boundaries... I was wondering if anyone had any other types of questions, either just for testing knowledge, or practice exam-style ones????

    Ah fair enough, I haven't come across any others... I suppose you could make them up by substituting the topics in the exam papers for other areas of the spec

    The only place I've seen other exam style questions are in this spec's textbook. They don't have many, AQA seem to enjoy changing the syllabus so often that we never get a proper back catalogue, but in the textbook they do have some exam style questions, often at the end of the topics.

    I'm really annoyed that our course is one of the only history courses that AQA don't upload model answers for! I really want to see some, but know my teacher won't give us any.

    I think there will be a thatcher question. I have a mock in about a week as well.

    They seem to always have a Thatcher and always have a synoptic question. It is so difficult to predict with these exams because they haven't been running it for long enough to have a sort of pattern. However, AQA have a new spec for teaching starting this September. So we are the second to last year sitting this exam so AQA may either be really nice and just pick re-hashed past exam questions or they could find obscure parts that they haven't done yet and pick on those bits. I just want this exam to be other with

    This takes up most of my revision if I'm honest. And yeah. It's sad that we can't really predict anything. Although my teacher has sort of implied on a social synoptic I'm not taking his word. I'm revising everything. Concentrating on Thatcher/New Labour. They probably would have to include at least one of those. Otherwise we'd be doing a very boring exam... Have you looked at the other thread for the making of modern Britain? It has so many essays etc. I've saved them all onto my pendrive. Going to be learning them.

    Yeah it's such a pain. This could be really interesting as a syllabus if we didn't have to revise it for an exam 😂 Nope, could you link me to this thread? Is it the one from last year or something?

    I have model answers for every possible question that could come up; I have written each of these essays and learnt directly from them (since I am getting A's I know they're written correctly) My teacher is amazing! What has everyone else been doing for revision?
    Hi, can you post any of them? really struggling to do better
