TSR EXAM JAM - History (3rd June):


TSR is doing EXAM JAM all half term and today's focus is on History :work:

The History exam jam is for all students, both GCSE and A-Level


For today, we'll be using this thread as an all day revision thread. The idea is that you post your start time, when you plan to finish your study session, and what you want to achieve in that time (e.g. 10:00-10:45 - Revise Suez Crisis). Once the time's up, you can come back, tell everyone how you got on and take a well earned break
We won't be running sessions at set times, so you can structure your study day to whatever works best for you, and though it's an all day revision thread, there's no expectation to study all day. It's important to make sure you are taking breaks and enjoying some of the nice weather too, since it is a holiday after all

If you get stuck with a past paper question when you're revising, or there's that one topic you really just can't get your head around, you can post your questions in this thread for other students to answer Explaining things to others can be really beneficial to your own understanding too

Key Dates (GCSE):

I'm studying Civil Rights in the USA, 1865-1992 for OCR?
Any tips for prep a day or two before the exam?
Specifically with essay writing and sources?

Is this for A-Level History on OCR?

Essay Writing
- I usually do a quick plan with an Intro (2-3 sentences forming your line of argument), Paragraphs 1-4 (1-2 sentences building on from your line of argument with different factors/points)

Sources
- I usually quickly go over the sources and then do a quick Intro (2-3 sentences forming your line of argument), Sources A etc. (1-2 sentences expanding on line of argument - does the source support the argument of the question)

I'm really struggling with trade unions and grasping the content for some reason and also the interpretation question. I worried about not being able to learn all of the info for the 12 options that could come up and also in general how to structure/approach the interpretations.
Thanks

Trade Unions? Are you referring to Britain 1930-1997? That's quite vague...

Sorry, no - Trade Unions and labour rights for US civil rights (1865-1992)
In general, I think I am most concerned about the interpretations questions (2 different interpretations on 1 of 12 topics and we have to argue which is most convincing.)

Ah Y319 according to the specification.

I haven't done interpretations yet as I'm currently in Year 12. I would refer to
http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/373399-...1-2-and-3-.pdf which is a useful guide giving you exam board specific advice about how you can approach certain questions and what they expect. Hope that helps.
