Hi I'm currently studying for my History A- Level. I should be taking my year 13 exam this summer. I had a lot of trouble with the course last year and struggled a lot with the structure of the questions. Does anyone have any tips and tricks that has really helped them? I'm looking for any advice around the subject as i need a good grade to get to University.

Which Strand are you doing? I'm doing Germany and West Germany 1918 to 1989, RIse of Fascism in Italy and rebellion and disorder under the Tudors.

I'd definitely recommend looking through the specification and how the exam will be structured.
I've made notes on everything and am going to organise them to fit the exams.

Sorry I'm not a very descriptive person😂 I'm doing edexcel history where we did America and South Africa in year 12. Now we are doing Britain and the welfare state. I've tried looking for the spec but I get confused because there is like 3 different ones!

Any advice on exam technique - especially sources and getting the level 5 band? I feel this is the only way I can be guaranteed an A because at the moment my essays range anywhere between 17/20 and 12/20

17/20 is an A they aren't bad scores. Doing well on your coursework will definitely help

The thing is my teacher's feedback is so erratic I have no idea how I even got that mark.

I know they are not allowed to help with the coursework, it would just be useful if my teacher could say more when she gives me feedback. It would help so much!

Hi guys,
How are you all revising for the exams? As i find the British book very useful, whereas the SA and the USA huge textbook has too much irelevant information in it. This is going to be a very hard course to do well in due to it being the new spec. My essays range from 14/20 to anything up to 18/20, however, i feel that when i write a 14/20 essay it is exactly the same as an 18/20. Any revision tips or guides would be useful, as my school is making us go on the huge textbook which certainly over hypes the whole units.
Cheers
