    Unit 3B: War and the Transformation of British Society c.1931-51:
    PRIORITISE YOUR REVISION ON:
    The National Health Service,
    The Blitz and the London Evacuations,
    D-Day and the Defeat of Germany,
    The 1945 General Election,
    The Jarrow March of 1936. This is because these topics haven't come up in papers from 2012 to the present. Just in case, skim through all the other sections as they MAY come up such as the Beveridge Report and Women's roles in WW2. Good luck for Tuesday!

    THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN WAS THE TOPIC FROM LAST YEARS EXAM. IT IS VERY UNLIKELY THAT THE SAME TOPIC WILL COME UP IN THE CONSECUTIVE YEAR

    Exam question layout
    Q1) have three short paragraphs if you can so 3 inferences. This can be achieved through starting each with 'this source suggests'. Say something that is not rewritten from the source. E.g what does the Luftwaffe wasting their fighter planes tell you? That they were inexperienced? A failure for Germany? That they underestimated the RAF? Only need one for each paragraph backed up with a quote from the source.
    Q2) purpose question. This might seem daunting 😱but it's not, believe in yourself 😌😊
    State the message of the source then state how this relates to what it's trying to achieve. And how does it achieve this purpose through its content? From this consider whether it's successful in achieving its purpose. You can link this to your own knowledge.
    Q3) have three paragraphs starting with one reason/ cause/ feature/ consequence to make it easy for the examiner. Take three ideas for each paragraph from the source but written in your own words. Then back up this idea with own knowledge to give a solid, clear answer to the question. E.g. One reason why the Battle of Britain took place was because the Luftwaffe wanted to beat the RAF as shown in Source C. Hitler needed to destroy the RAF in order to try and invade Britain. Therefore, using his Luftwaffe against the RAF, it shows that the defeat of the RAF was a crucial and necessary factor that needed to be dealt with.
    Q4) in this question, you have to consider the reliability of the sources separately in separate paragraphs one after the other. Think about the content: make inferences from images, words and tone. Think whether it fits your own knowledge of an event to discuss if it's has limitations that undermine its accuracy. Next evaluate the context of each source: when was it created? Was it at the beginning, during, or after an event? Are you getting the full picture of an event? Does it reflect the experience of everyone, everywhere, all the time? Then, come to a judgement on each sources reliability separately! You are not asked to compare them!??!?
    I may post an example later if many request so.
    Q5) For this one you NEED a plan 🙂😳 choose which sources agree or diagram with a statement - there probably will be some that can agree with both sides and this will help when coming to a judgement. Make sure you also have own knowledge and consider if your own knowledge agrees with one side more than the other. Use comparison connectives to clearly make it known to the examiner you are looking at both sides - JUST DO IT
    Use own knowledge to back up points throughout. Consider reliability and accuracy though NOP as well. Eg. Source A was more reliable support because... The sources will never fully agree with the statement: they may partially, quite strongly, to a small extent etc
    An example will be posted if requested!
    Hope you found this useful as I did for revision myself
    We will all ace this exam 😉
