    Here's a thread to discuss about the unit 2 history exam, I hope everyone does well!

    I'm studying the British India topic which I find a little bit boring in all honesty, I'm ready for the 20 marker but there's just so much content for the 40 maker. :work:

    Remember that 36/60 marks are source analysis/weighting/evaluation.
    Only 24/60 is general knowledge.

    0 GENERAL KNOWLEDGE SHOULD BE USED ON 20 MARKER.

    40 Marker = 24 marks general knowledge, 16 marks source analysis/evaluation.

    I thought the general knowledge was out of 16 marks, not 24? As in, the other way round?

    Part (b)Target: AO1a & AO1b (10% - 24 marks)Recall, select and deploy historical knowledge appropriately, and communicate knowledgeand understanding of history in a clear and effective manner.

    AO2b (7% - 16 marks)Analyse and evaluate, in relation to the historical context, how aspects of the past havebeen interpreted and represented in different ways.(40 marks)

    What do you think our 40 marker will be? I was thinking something to do with WW1 or WW2 and how it led to partition or something like that.

    One thing you don't need to do in the Part b) questions is evaluate the provenance of the source (but you still need to cross reference!). Doing India... feeling alright about it.

    Hey guys
    Anyone doing Early British History - henry viii?
    How do you feel about that? Confident or not? Is there some sort of pattern and can we have some predictions?
    I really hope the early period sort of Anne Boleyn or the later dissolution of the monasteries comes up x

    I love British political history
    Wait, we're still talking about the book with Margaret thatcher in it right lol?
    I like unit 2 better than unit 1, but I don't understand how to answer the twenty marker without using knowledge because it's purely source based
