hey i'm doing this too! i thought my school was the only one in the country! no idea, i think the 30 marker for causes will be something about an event like the Missouri compromise q a few years ago....i don't think there will be an individual question either given that there was a 30 marker about Grant last year. plus this is the last year that edexcel is offering this module so hopefully no curveballs!

I hope its on something on events from the Missouri Compromise to 1857 or something around that time frame, or something on Andrew Jackson democratising US politics, or successes/failures of reconstruction. That Grant question last year looked awful. I don't think economies will come up again.

Civil War section I'm thinking Missouri Compromise/ Jacksonian Democracy or some political evolution theme.
Hoping for a standard reconstruction question on the lives of freed slaves improving. They could be horrible and do what they did on one of the 2012 papers and ask about the causes of tension from 1820-57 and Jacksonian Democracy with no mention of Reconstruction at all...

So far edexcel have followed a pattern where they'll ask politics related questions for two years and then one economic one. Economies came up in June 2015 so I doubt it'll come up again, though it is friendlier.

Is there always a question in the first section in an early and later period? That seems to be the pattern..

I'm surprised they haven't asked a question on why Republican Reconstruction came to an end, I think if reconstruction comes up thats quite a likely question

I'm doing this exam tomorrow! (yes I know I'm really late on the bandwagon here)

For the part A I'm thinking it will be political/social/economic impact of WW1 for q3 and opposition to Roosevelt for q4, then for part B I think it will either be the banking system or structural weaknesses for q5, and I have no idea for q6!

That being said, I still know none of it so will need some kind of miracle tomorrow!

Good luck guys!x

I found it to be pretty good, I answered the Missouri 30 marker and controversy one, I feel like the 40 went better than the 30 but I don't think I've done enough to get an A which is what I need for uni cries, you?

Yeah I did the same question, was it based on just the left wing or could you use right wing critics and the supreme court?

I did a whole paragraph about the Supreme Court saying it was the most important reason? And I did one about the right too but I'm not sure now

I didn't like the Jackson question aha so answered the one on the Missouri Compromise. The section B I did why the south lost, which was ok, couple of hard points in the sources, and gutted military leadership didn't come up. But overall it was decent.

How did you find it?
