Hi everyone!

This is a thread for those doing the Crime and Punishment c1000-Present/Whitechapel paper as their chosen thematic study (Paper 1).

The exam date is Monday 3rd June 2019. This paper accounts for 30% of the entire GCSE.

I don't know about you guys, but I think this part of the course is the most content wise .

Use this thread to share how you're feeling in the run up to the exam, some cool revision strategies you have and (after the exam) how you felt about the paper!

I hope you find this useful!

Good luck!

Evil Homer, please add this to the list!

Paper 1 DOWN. Well done everyone!

There are threads up for The Cold War, Elizabethan Era and The USA. Please use the TSR Search bar and they will appear.

Hiya, so for Crime and Punishment, I'm mainly making summary notes for each block/time period. I have cue cards which I bought online which I still need to go though :ninja: and I want to make a table of crimes, punishments and law enforcements. What about you?

Is it content that you're not getting or is it structure?

As an answer to your thread, I'm pretty sure trial by combat is the law enforcement. I guess the "punishment" in this sense was the death, lmao.

:yep:

What are your other ones? Mine are Elizabeth + Cold War/Superpower relations and The USA 1954-75. I'll be making separate threads for them soon too.

Content: just use memory tricks to remember dates. Make a table of crimes, punishments and law enforcement (matching) and memorise it. :yep:

Structure: just like you do in English. Talk about the 'event' a little bit to show off your knowledge and keep linking back to the question. This will flow eventually when all the content is learned. :thumbsup:

Maybe split it a bit rather than cramming? It's a lot of content! :eek:

Hi! I'm doing the same study with Elizabethan, American West, and Wiemar/ Nazi Germany; I'm currently really stuck in where to get revision info from, bbc bitesize doesn't cover my needed specification in Crime and Punishment, my past books are impossible to read from, and i don't have any of the revision guides,Do you have any recommended websites for revising Crime and Punishment 1000c-present?

I recommend getting the purple revision guides from Pearson. They should be on Amazon somewhere. I find them really good for content and exam practice. :yep:

hey, my school is also doing Mao's China. How are you memorising the content, there's so much for China alone. I'm also doing Nazi Germany, Rise of the Bolsheviks in Russia, and the civil rights movement in America. Any tips on how to memorise all the content? I'm so scared I feel like I'm going to blank of everything in the exam

I know how that feels. I think history has that effect but just try not to worry. I generally try active recall which has really helped me. By this I mean I'' teach myself a topic with my book open and then after I feel comfortable, I close it and repeat it to my self in my own words. You can do this by writing out everything you remember too. Hope this helps, its certainly been some use to me. I also find that making essay plans is useful particularly 12 markers. Mao's china's is quite dense but just remember don't stress too much, a lot of it isn't even your own knowledge, mostly just sources.
