    does anyone have any advice on how to answer the qeustions? I had a mock a few weeks ago where i found the questions before hand and learnt the answers, and i still got a grade 3! I take stuff from a cgp book for instance the question was "what caused the weimar republic downfall, economic or poolitical reason" I said that the french invaded the Ruhr which caused fear amongst the people and turned people against the weimar republic, what do i need to add to my points to actually get the marks I feel like im just reciting facts out of a cgp book which i assume wont get me far, thanks

    it might help to learn a few precise statistics that could apply to everything, and learn how to answer the questions in the way they want because i did really badly in one test where i knew all the content and facts, but didn't know exactly how to respond the way the exam board wanted me to, which is really frustrating because you know you're right, and have the right idea and just dont know how to say it in one way that someone's decided!:banghead: maybe ask your teacher how to answer the questions question by question, ive now learnt how to and have done better since. i know i didnt really answer your question but hope i helped!

    Have you been through the page in the Nazi Germany Book, Conflict and Tension Book wherein it tells you how to answer like a 12 mark or 8 mark questions?

    Could you send them to me also? Thanks.
    Hi guys, I finally finished scanning the booklet my teacher provided for Medicine through time but for some reason when I try to attach it, it says "Oh No some error occurred" :/

    I made a Padlet account where you can post and share stuff all on a wall for anyone studying history and attached the document on there or if anyone wants me to email it to them send me a reply.

    I'm aiming for an 8 and so far am stable. I suggest printing out the specification from the AQA website and just note & flashcard making for each of the subtopics from the aqa approved gcse history books from class. my teacher posts them on dynamic learning for me to note & flashcard make from them in my free time as an extra thing I asked from her. ask your teacher to do that if you want
    could you share them
