Tips for GCSE History StudentsWatch
I am in the process of sorting out workshop sessions for year 11's at my school who are aiming for A and A*'s at GCSE history, following the AQA WW1/LoN/WW2 syllabus. It's been a year since I have studied it and done my GCSE in history, so I wanted to know your thoughts. What things would help you? Have you done your GCSE history and have any particular hints and tips for getting those top grades?
I hope this helps and good luck with helping them.
The things like how exactly to answer source questions; "this source shows.. The message of the source is... This relates to.." etc.
Also, revising important dates/events. Like the really key ones. Course we're doing doesn't have much on WW1/WW2/LoN so don't have any good examples but something like what was on the Treaty of Versailles, etc etc
