    I put blood letting, but even if you did mess up on that part, you could still have gained the majority of the other marks so don't worry! Did you mention clinical observation for that source?

    Can I still get an A*? The rest of the questions went really well. Thank you, I'm just so stressed. In that question I put something about hygiene not improving and a few other revalant points. I think I mentioned Harvey or something. would I still get *some* marks?

    Even I wrote about blood transfusion and I think it should be accepted as an alternative point because by the eighteenth century this was invented and it does seem valid if we put it into context. I also wrote about hygiene.

    Even if it is blood letting for that question, you would still get marks for explanation and other valid points right?

    This paper was actually quite alright I didn't like the vigilantes question on the American West, but for Source C I did the four humours, because it was asking about the Greeks, and they didn't really do blood-letting, that was more Galen? Blood is one of the four humours. Not sure if that's right though, probably wrong haha
    Course you can!
    & I hope you get the A* your looking for hun!

    Someone said that last year it was around 66/81 for an A* so if you only messed up on one part of a question and you got other points you'll be fine!

    I'm sure many did the same because it was quite an obvious answer. Nevertheless, I hope we didn't lose marks but even if we did, it should only be 2/3 max.

    Yes, that was my favorite question. I have public health next week and still haven't started revising for it but I guess I should be fine as I did good for that paper in the mocks so fingers crossed
