Edexcel Unit 3 Revolution, Republic & Restoration 1629-1667Watch
I can't really be bothered learning past 1648, so think I am just going to focus a lot on the pre-1648 stuff.
I just hope they don't chose a new question or focus which they have never chosen before, or that they chose 2 questions from post-1648.
The 30 marker seems pretty straightforward, bit more worried about the 40 marker. Once again I hope they go for a straightforward question like side taking.
To be honest I think that there is less content than the AS Units, we did Tsarist and Stalinist Russia for AS and it too me days to learn it all. This time around it isn't all that bad...
My teacher hasn't given any predictions, I haven't seen any questions on the causes of the Civil war so far, so I guess that probably has a good chance of coming up and it is one of the best questions possible imo..
There have been so many questions on Why Parliament won the Civil War, I really am not sure whether to practice that a lot, or leave it..
-To what extent was the death of Charles I the result of his own actions.
- 'Without the new model army, the execution of Charles I would not have taken place; and neither would the restoration of Charles II.' how far do you agree? (i guess this could be adapted)
- 'It was religious issues which started the Civil War in 1642.' discuss
any other ideas?
Charles II's restoration (was it pre-planned, was the key player Clarendon, was it a Royalist settlement)
or on Negotiations between 1649-53 (perhaps was it completely pushed through by the army, was earlier events to blame for the Rump and Barebones failures)
And for Side Taking a question on constitutional issues or religious motives being most prominent.
Hope this helps!!
Can someone help. The period of 1653-8 is Search for a Settlement, so will it definitely not come up as a 30 mark essay question? Really need an answer urgently as exam is tomorrow!!
I am only really practising the Side Taking 40 marker.
Thanks for those suggestions, they look pretty hard but I would be very surprised if a pre-1648 question doesn't come up and worried, as my knowledge of post 1648 is sketchy.
