    prob wont be extremely helpful, but:
    70 marker
    Group the sources according to different themes (you have probably heard that so much by now), sustain thgroup, avoid ever talking about one source at a time, otherwise it looks like stock evaluation and you cant get more than a C.
    even though it isAS level and we are meant to have our own sort of structure, try to have you topic sentence, followed by a point, then analysis and maybe evaluation.
    don't discredit a source just becauseof who it is written by, for exmple: just because a protestant talks about mary burning people, does not mean that they ar wrong, sure they have a vested interest to put catholics in a bad light, but we know mary burnt over 200 people so show the examiner what they know.


    cant think of anything else right now and I am really awful at the 30 marker lol

    I think I interpreted the question wrong, what did it mean by "responsible for fall of royal favour" ?!?!?!

    I think it meant, how did faction make people basically loose their position in court/ no longer supported by other ministers/ no longer liked by the monarch. Thats what I was thinking?


    How did you group the sources, I think I messed up source B with Cromwell, I said that it didn't support the interpretation but now I think it did

    I grouped A, B and E then C and D. I talked about the power of factions and how they posed a threat to royal power... So I ****ed up :/

    Thank you student97. Advice was sound.

    Anywho... that exam? That could've gone better.

    May have truly bodged it due to getting confused about who tf the admiral was in source D.

    Also could not for the life of me find a disagreement between sources A and B. Sheesh.

    Hope everyone else found it okay, and the rest of your exams go splendidly folks xxx
