    As am I! And I completely agree, it's a really good combination as they're so different in terms of factors and therefore you don't get overwhelmed
    What are you planning on studying at university? I messed up my AS grades and only came out with ABC, it's not bad but I was hoping for better haha. Looking at History at Lancaster atm.

    Oh right, for further reading?
    No we use it as a textbook at school because it goes into a good amount of detail, but it isn't too dry if you know what I mean.

    oooh okay, thanks I'll check it out! The one I'm using is by Angela Anderson, even though it's AQA approved its a waaay too wordy but oh well, hopefully your recommendation will be much more easier to actually understand

    Yeah, I use that book too but I don't like it. I find it too difficult to understand :confused:

    Bit late to the party but I’m in Year 13 doing Tudors and Russia. I am in desperate need of some help with my Tudor paper in terms of exam technique and structure. I can remember the content no problem but this doesn’t seem to be translating into my practice questions. I think it’s to do with having not handled secondary sources but I kind of hoped to have come to terms with it a year in now

    I don't study Nazi Germany, but I study the Stuarts.

    If you've started studying the Stuarts please can you answer my question - Was the Divine Right of Kings the same thing as the Royal Prerogative or was the Prerogative derived from the idea of Divine Rights?

    Thank you
    I do Stuarts, and my understanding has always been that the Divine Right relates to a monarch's God-given right to rule. The royal prerogative is slightly different, it's the rights a monarch can expect to have because they are king/queen (e.g. prior to the civil war, control over foreign affairs, right to call and dissolve parliament, etc are all part of the royal prerogative). Hope that helps

    For the original poster, I do Stuarts and the French Revolution.

    I got an A* (full marks) in Russia and Tudors this year. What part of the exam technique/structure are you struggling with?

    My Tudor essays, both the extract and essay questions just read like a narrative. I find Russia so easy to weave my own knowledge in and analyse it but because the nature of the Tudor period is so different I think I’m trying to use the same approach and it isn’t working. There’s barely any example answers that I can use to help find a structure and style.
