How many dates are we expected to know for the As OCR exam? I probably will only know about 10 for each topic, Civil War and Stalin (minus the document study which i'll know only loosely) thanks. I'm so so worried about this exam!

For The Personal Rule + Civil war, which i am also doing i would say between 15-20. For the Personal Rule learn the Laudian dates examples such as the introduction of the prayer book 1637, the bishops war 1637/1638 can't remember got to revise that one, hampden case, burton bastwick and prynee. Civil war there are not that many dates, just remember the dates of the battles and you'll be fine, the important ones at that. Nasby 1644, Maston moor + edgehill. All the best

You don't need many really, 10 should do it. I'd prepare yourself for A2 though, in a few weeks I've got an exam with approxamitely 30 acts, not including dates and whatnot.

Yes please. In the last 2 papers the topics have been Causes of the Civil war & key question 4 ( I hate that), but we don't actually do it, we only do 1 + 3 :p:. Hopefully Personal Rule should come up along with Why parliament won the civil war

Do not plan it, honestly it'll be waste of time, because most oft he information will be there for you already, it's just a case of you predominantly using the source and then backing it up with your own knowledge. Just get your technique right before the exam and it'll come as second nature to you.

Provenance will come in your comaparing + contrasting, possibly after you have used your own knowledge. It will be the critique of the source(s), which gets you into the A band, as you are aware of what needs to be done to make the source complete. So for example a man in a mob, would have a totally different view to a Political situation to a man writing memoirs, no pressure whatsoever, mob there is a lot of pressure to put it blandly. But also make sure you cover all 4 of the sources sufficiently, it's what you need for the A band. or if your really stuck you could go through source by source, however this is quite risky + not advisable, but i have seen people on the document paper do it and come out with A's :rolleyes:

I feel exactly the same. My English lit exam was a disaster. History is looking quite bleak as well
