Honestly, I found revision for American West to be the most tedious out of the 3 I do (first one being medicine through time and the next one being surgery). However, I was lucky to find the exam quite straight forward. I wrote about the coming of the railroads, the question on homesteaders and the question on development of Salt Lake city. Was expecting more difficult questions to come up, but they were very general and almost common sense.

Found this exam to be easier than the first (I screwed the first one up due to lack of revision). Hoping to do well in the next one!

How'd it go for you?

I found medicine easy, especially the 16 marker. For american west it's definitely the most boring but also the easiest to pick up marks, and I agree, the whole exam was easy except for both 16 mark questions which were kinda obscure.

Overall pretty pleased with history!!

Yep! I did 7 paragraphs including a conclusion and mostly disagreed. I think i put other factors (weather), wild animals, hostile Indians' attacks and being unprepared, and also manifest destiny as it was the government's push to migrate.

For agree i put the splitting of the party, membership so arguing and having too many people for little supplies and the cannibalism.
