I need some guidance !!

I'm currently retaking my AS subjects (except History is new to me this year). I'm homeschooling and it's very difficult mainly for History. I'm studying The Early Tudors (1485-1558) for unit 1 and Democracy and Dictatorships in Germany (1919-63) for unit 2. I have both textbooks but I just don't know what to do or how to focus anymore. Does /anyone/ have revision notes that breakdown either? (or both, would be greatly appreciated).
ALSO,
Can someone explain the structure of answering the exam questions? It's easier for other people because they're taught it at school but doing this myself is so different.

(Psst if you have mocks soon and anything came up, please talk about it if you'd like. Exam hints would be useful. I can't explain how studying purely yourself is different from school lmao).

Again, any help would be so so useful.
Thanks.

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.


Just quoting in Danny Dorito so she can move the thread if needed :wizard:

Hi!

I'm studying the Early Tudors so I'll hopefully be able to help

I always try to structure the essay with 3/4 paragraphs. The introduction is typically laid out with 1 piece of background information (i.e a date - sometimes I usually add the year of ascension if I'm stuck) then several pieces of information that are the topics of the following paragraphs, and then the last line should be the argument in the essay itself.

As for paragraph structure- PEACH. Point, Evidence, Analysis, Counterargument, However - a counterargument to the counterargument (basically saying the point is a benefit/negative depending on the initial argument)

I hoped this helped, and if you need to ask anything else, just reply to this!
