    I'm studying Clash of Ideologies 1900 - 1991 for A21 and Partition of Ireland 1900 - 1925 for A22. I was just wondering if anyone out there had any ideas of what might come up on either exam?

    Yeah i was definitely thinking Rise of Sinn Fein for the Essay, but I'm not too sure about the sources. I think it will probably be from Theme 3, as Theme 1 is too obvious to go for, and its also disproportionally chosen by candidates as an essay every year whereas Theme 3 is almost universally ignored

    i think it could be home rule for sources - they haven't come up in a while, and the source questions have always been on either hr, easter rising, decline of ipp/rise of sf or anglo irish war. i'd like an essay on the reasons for the civil war, but i don't know whether it's likely to come up or not. rise of sf or easter rising would also be nice essays to appear.

    (ideal paper would be source on home rule, essay on causes of the easter rising, and essay on causes of civil war but ccea would never be that nice.)

    The NI question of problems faced by the Craig government/methods used to address them, is relatively straight-forward, so wouldn't be too bad if it did come up.

    I'm yet to look at the "who was most satisfied with the Govt. of Ireland Act 1920" question, however. Not the greatest of questions.

    I think it will be Home Rule for the source and I think either Easter Rising or Rise of Sinn Fein are likely for the essay.

    Any idea on how much historiography is needed for this module? Can't be as much as the '20 quotes' at A2 1 since we wouldn't have time.

    Is it not only 'The rise of Sinn Fein' and 'Causes of the Easter Rising' in theme 2 or am I wrong? So one of them is certain to come up anyways? If Home Rule doesn't come up as a source I'll be likely to walk out haha

    They can ask about WW1 as well for Theme 2, there was an old spec paper we did in class and the sources were on whether the British government were ungrateful for Nationalist support during the war. It probably couldn't be asked as an essay question directly though as there wouldn't be enough to write about

    There is meant to be less interpretation on this one, the essay is only marked out of 15 for interpretation. So i don't know, maybe 15 quotes? We were never told that for A21, just told to write as much as you could hahaha

    Both contemporary and historian interpretations! I can only really put in around 12 in the essay. Yeah war of independence and the reasons for a truce, so like military and political pressures for both the Irish and British!

    Yeah I don't really have a lot of interpretation for it as well, but if you have seen the Michael Collins film it is quite accurate (to an extent. For example ned broy doesn't actually die in real life haha), and the historical advisor for that film was Tim Pat Coogan. So any good quotes in the movie or the divisions it brings out between Collins and de Valera over the best approach to the war and their divisions over the Treaty is all stuff Tim Pat Coogan agrees with, so he can be used as interpretation. Just a last resort hahaha
