    Enoch Powell's Rivers of Blood speech, Good Friday Agreement (or pretty much anything to do with Northern Ireland), potentially Major?

    My teacher seems to think that race relations will come up. Her theory was that the exam board have in the past put things on that relate to modern day new stories, because Europe came up during the EU referendum etc.

    Besides race relations, probably John Major because he hasn't come up yet. Maybe Northern Ireland too.

    I feel way more prepared for Modern Britain than I do for Tsarist and Communist Russia (which I have on Wednesday )

    In totally the same boat! And I have a double exam day on Wednesday, so I'll be in the exam hall for 5 hours....

    What do you mean with Powell's speech? As in it is a potential source as one of the three?

    I think major is likely as they haven't asked on that yet, same with NIR

    In the additional spec paper immigration in the 60s is a source, with Powell’s River of Blood speech one of them so cannot see that being included.

    I really hope so! I've been cramming Thatcher's and Major's economic policies. Need to go over NI and Blair but to what extent of race relations? I can only ever think of the Notting Hill Riots and couldn't image writing a full essay on it?

    Hmm... I'd say general attitudes and legislation. So Race Relations Act '65, '68, '76 and Immigrations Acts to limit immigrations with obvs Rivers of Blood gaining 75% approval and subsequent 2nd Commonwealth Immigration Act in '68 over Kenyan Asians because of it. Blair race relations is easy as it's 2005 London terrorist attacks.
    What I hate about the depth paper is that they can drill down as my teacher said on about anything... like Race Relations.
    I hope to God Ireland doesn't come up though as I can never remember all the paramilataires, negotiators, etc xD

    Thanks so much I'm going to memorise some statistics as well. Found that 9/10 objected to mixed-race marriages in a 1965 survey. Crazy to think about how much society has changed. Hope your exam goes well!

    I hope so too! Am worried they will be though as the Breadth paper which I did, Gemrany Political Stability, was easy. My teacher has also said the grade boundaries are ridiculaously low this year and that by virtue of doing Hisotry you've already passed it as 35 is a E I think xD. Way I've been trying to remeber NI is just revising all the 6 periods together than waiting to cover all of the period with Politics, Economics, etc, say. Helps in noticing change and continuity as well. Good luck!!
