    Hey there! I'm sitting this exam. Pretty worried tbh, I feel like these 'depth' units are more unpredictable. It could literally be on anything :/

    Been revising loads though, finished up to Personal Rule earlier and planning to continue on to financial issues soon.

    Really? That's only for the later part, and there aren't that many Acts to know. Triennal Act, Habeas Corpus Act, Act against Dissolution, Bill of Attainder, and there may be one or two more

    Anyone here got an idea of what types of question would come up? I have practiced a couple but am struggling to find any other kinds of question due to this being a new spec.

    No idea what will come up but these are some b style ones we have looked at in class


    "The Grand Remonstrance was the result of the radicalism of Pym" Explain why you agree or disagree with this view.

    "Charles I's demand for the Forced Loan of 1626 was purely a political measure" Explain why you agree or disagree with this view.

    Was Parliamentary radicalism justified?

    "Finance was the main reason for the breakdown in relations 1625-1629" How far do you agree.

    "Parliament was more to blame than Charles I" How valid is this assessment of the causes of the deterioration in the relationship between Crown and Parliament in the years 1625 - 1629?

    "The King was unsuccessful at managing the actions of his advisors" Explain why you agree or disagree with the following statement.

    "Charles' reign was doomed from the start" Evaluate how accurate this statement is.

    I did that but minus the ten propositions and the root and branch debate.
    Oh I knew I was forgetting something, I did indeed talk about the Root and Branch debates + Bill.

    Overall though, very nice paper. Our class also did a source question nearly identical to the one in the paper just a week ago, with Lucy Hutchinson as one of the authors and the Venetian ambassador as the other. Talk about coincidence :P
