What were your guys opinions on paper 1 of OCR History? (I did the cold war(and cuban missile crisis and vietnam) and Germany.
Paper 2 is coming up and we haven't looked at that in as much detail as we did paper 1. My topics are:
-The Liberal Reforms
-Votes for women
-The home front
-The treaty of versailles
Does anybody have any good revision sources for these? I practically know nothing

I'm doing GCSE OCR History paper 2 also, but I'm just doing Public Health in Britain 1800-1914.

Okay, i'm so confused, i have paper 2 on Wednesday and I don't know what it's going to be about!

I did paper 1 on medicine through time and germany depth study.
My teacher said paper 2 (developments in British Medicine 1200-1945) for us will be on public health.
But when i look at the past paper June2013 was public health,
but Jan2013 was surgery, june2012 was penicillin, jan2012 was public health again but then june2011 was nursing jan2011 was jenner, june2010 was quack doctors, jan2010 was surgery.

I'm so confused! Does it change each year and OCR tell schools which topic it will be and for 2015 it is public health or...? Like i really don't understand.

Will my exam be on public health DEFINITELY OR...?

If you look on your exam timetable, it will say Public Health as it does on mine. If your doing the same paper as me then it is definitely on public health, I can reassure you
I could give you a list from the specification, but I'm not sure if its got everything.. Doyou want me to post it?

That does sound confusing? We've always been told it's Public Health in Britain 1800-1914. I did medicine and Germany like you also. It says Public Health on my exam timetable, what does it say on yours?

HI, so im doing ocr gcse paper 2 too, and im doing the british depth study. My teacher said that the paper would be based on one of the following topics (women suffrage/suffragette , liberal reforms, or the home front) Does anyone have any suggestions which one will come up. And does anyone have any tips on analysing sources since this whole paper is source based

Based on the last few papers (Liberals and Homefront) it would mean Women would come up...but that's no guarantee.

I'm quite worried myself about the analysing sources part, easily the hardest paper. BUT, it is worth 30%, so it's not as important.

Best way to learn how to analyse is to practise with past papers http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications...117-from-2012/ and DEFINITELY use the mark scheme, they are best way to learn what kind of things OCR expect to read as examiners.

Okay thank you. Although you say its "ONLY" 30% you must be sure of your paper 1 mark and your coursework mark But thank you i will take extra care at revising women

Im doing paper 2 on protests (suffragettes, Luddites, tolpulldle martyrs etc) the only thing in anxious about is the last question as it's worth 16 marks. Anyone know how to structure the answers to these questions?

Our teacher has only just told us that this year the paper is changing!! Is this true? Apparently you don't get the information at the start of the sources now and the final question is more of an essay question??
