    I’m doing the 1066-1216 English government and the church. Only 5 schools do this topic and my school is the only school doing it that’s not a grammar school.

    Nope. And even if I did, it can't go public at the moment, exam rules and such.

    I'm doing US Civil Rights 1865-1992 and I'm just doing my interpretations research - I would really appreciate it if anybody could share their notes with me, since all I've got right now are the notes given in the revision guide, and I feel that I need much more depth than that :afraid:

    Actually, if anybody has any notes at all on US Civil Rights I'd love for you to share them, I feel as if we've skimmed over a lot of the course (and the textbook we've been using apparently isn't in depth enough (says the internet)) - any help is appreciated!

    Also, thank you so much for sharing the questions; all I've had to go off of so far are the sample questions!

    I look forward to being absolutely petrified before the exam with you all!

    It's natural for the thematic unit not to be taught with a great deal of depth. And that's going to be the case for everyone, not just you.

    I'll point you towards the following link for more helpful things...

    Forgot to mention this earlier, but if anybody's interested, I've made some courses for the Civil Rights in the USA course on Memrise, which I think is pretty useful for learning dates and terminology (although it was originally designed for languages, but eh). It's up to you whether you decide to use them or not, but I hope you find them useful!
