    Hello all.

    How do you all find interpretations? It is the only part of the exam I sort of find difficult, on the others I have been getting high marks.

    Well that sucks, we are completely done with Germany and I think we only have a few pages to cover on the fall of fascism.

    No idea.

    Can't imagine they will be lower than other years unless the questions are weird...

    80% for an A is a safe bet

    Obviously I am aiming for an A grade, and so far I have been getting some in mocks. However, I need to work on my exam technique. My teacher said I talk a lot of ******** in my essays and never link back to the question except for in the conclusion, to put it nicely :P. How about you?

    I've been getting As and Bs. Although I really don't feel like I'll produce that kind of work in the exam. That said, I tend to work well under exam pressure providing I've revised so I should be fine.

    Just a little nervous about the interpretations question...

    I, on the other hand, am pretty confident about the interpretations question. It's paper 2 that I am concerned about.

    Paper 2 is pretty good!

    You get a choice of three essay questions and you have source questions with very few marks attached.

    For those doing Edexcel Route C: Britain, 1625-1701: Conflict, revolution and settlement - does anyone know where I can find a mark scheme for the Glorious Revolution interpretation question?

    We've been somewhat under-guided in terms of how/what to write for the question, so any help is much appreciated
