Currently about to take my A Level History exam in the summer but I'm really stressing over the interpretation analysis section of my paper as I struggle to score over 20/30 in any practice papers I have done.

We are required to analyise 3 historian interpretations and pick out key arguments however, my teacher has told us that we are required to find 2 arguments within the interpretation and then write a 'mini' essay on each? So basically within the 1 hour time frame for that question, we are required to write 6 mini essays?

I have really struggled with these timings as have the other people in my class as we have found this virtually impossible to do. Furthermore, I end up writing about 5 double sides for an essay, which my teacher has then said was too long? The one example essay online we have been able to find was 1/3 of the length of our essays and the examiners report said that even that was too long?

We're just very confused and worried over the upcoming exam so if anyone knows what they are doing, I would be really greatful if you could enlighten me a little!

I'm studying Stuart Britain and The Crisis of The Monarchy. I have been taught to write 3 paragraphs, each paragraph on just 1 extract. I've found this helpful as there is less stress on time as you're only writing 3 paragraphs. WIthin the paragraph you want to start with your line of argument (what the Historian is saying) and then pick 3 quotes that you can either support or challenge. Make sure you link back to the question in the last line of your paragraph and make sure to use the words 'convincing' or 'successful' depending on the wording of the question. Hope this helps
