Hi I am, and my teacher recommends that we revise Lister, however I think that if you learn the individual factors such as War and opposition to ideas you will be fine.
Do you have any predictions?

I would say learn some of the key dates such as 1799 - laughing gas is encouraged by Humphry Davy to be used in surgery, 1846 ether used in America then in Britain, 1847 chloroform is used as an anaesthetic and 1853 Queen Victoria uses chloroform for the birth of her 8th child.. Also look at how surgery changed from pre 1850s (i.e. no anaesthetics, antiseptics or understanding in how to control blood loss - the main problems being pain, infection and blood loss) and then key factors and individuals

Yeah I agree! What about Hannah Greener dying in 1848 due to an overdose of chloroform?

1) 6 marks - make 2 inferences
2) 8 marks - artist/author impression
3) 10 marks - cross-referencing
4) 10 marks - content and reliability
5) 16 marks + 4 marks for SPaG - essay question - give balanced answer (argue both sides)

Yeah it is but you should discuss both reliability and content of the sources to get top marks!

Oh my gosh finally a thread for my history exam! I swear no one else on here does Edexcel Medicine Through Time and Germany 1918-1945! 😊 I'm not sure what it will be on- but a good revision tip might be to split up the sections (into Anaesthetics, Bloodloss, Antiseptics, War and Technology) and give each of these a colour then make a timeline of key events and dates so you can clearly see when the key developments of these sections are (I haven't done this myself but I did for medicine and it proved really helpful for gaining a sense of chronology!) 😊

I know! I'm doing the exact same history exams as you, but I couldn't find a thread for surgery, so I thought I'd just make one What about splitting the topics into the three main problems of surgery - pain, infection and blood loss?

Try the edexcel website maybe?

And arrh!! I was under the impression it would be in the exact same format as the last two exams (Medicine & Germany).

Our teacher never gave us any question papers on this unit.

I'm very very nervous now -_-, guys what are the most important things we need to incorporate in our answers to get A* ?

I see the past exam paper, literally clueless -_+

we've been told the structure of the exam is no longer cross referencing for question 3 but is now a 'explain why using sources' and question 4 has changed from usefulness to reliability

it's annoying that there is no past paper examples of these questions..
