Hi, I also do English revolution 1625-1660 and I posted about it the other day, but I received no replies which suggests that it isn’t a very common module to do. What are your predictions? I’m yet to study past papers properly to make predictions.

Hey so,

In terms of sources,
They have been regarding the following periods:
*[1] April 1653 (Cromwell's dissolution of the Rump) --> Question paper (Modified A4 18pt) (A-level) - June 2018
[2] 1657 (Cromwell's refusal of the crown) --> Question paper (A-level) - Sample set 2 2014
[3] 1649 (Regicide) ie execution of the king --> Question paper (A-level) - Sample set 1 2014
*[4] April 1653 (Cromwell's dissolution of Rump) --> Question paper (A-level)- June 2018
*[5] Execution of C1 --> Question paper (A-level)- June 2017

* unlikely to repeat

From the trend shown, they have been testing nearer to the end of C1 and Cromwell. So, i'd suggest revising 11 years of tyranny and the years of 1625-1629 break down in relations between parl and king more. Furthermore, break down in relations between king and parl between 1639-49.

Personally i think they will be testing much earlier content for sources.



In terms of essays,
They have been regarding the following periods:
[1] Question paper (Modified A4 18pt) (A-level) - June 2018
‘Buckingham was the cause of the deterioration in
Crown-Parliament relations in the years 1625 to
1629.’

0 3 ‘In the years 1640 to 1642, developments outside
Parliament were more important than those inside
it in bringing about the outbreak of civil war in
England.’

0 4 How important was religious radicalism in the
New Model Army in bringing about the regicide?
[25 marks]

[2]Question paper (A-level) - Sample set 2 2014
was Charles I’s stubborn adherence to the Divine Right that produced conflict

[25 marks]

[25 marks]

[3]Question paper (A-level) - Sample set 1 2014
Religion was the main reason for conflict between Crown and Parliament in the years
1625 to 1629.’
Assess the validity of this view.
[25 marks]

[4]Question paper (A-level)- June 2018
‘Buckingham was the cause of the deterioration in Crown-Parliament relations in the
years 1625 to 1629.’
Assess the validity of this view.
[25 marks]
0 3 ‘In the years 1640 to 1642, developments outside Parliament were more important than
those inside it in bringing about the outbreak of civil war in England.’
Assess the validity of this view.
[25 marks]
0 4 How important was religious radicalism in the New Model Army in bringing about the
regicide? [1657 ish]
[25 marks]

[5]How significant was parliamentary radicalism in the breakdown of relations between
Crown and Parliament in the years 1625 to 1629?
[25 marks]
0 3 How seriously did Puritan opposition to Laudianism challenge the authority of Charles I
in the years 1633 to 1640?
[25 marks]
0 4 ‘Monarchy was restored in 1660 not because of what Charles II did but because of the
actions of others after the death of Oliver Cromwell in 1658.’
Assess the validity of this view.
[25 marks]

Now, for the past 2 years they have asked questions on the break down in relation during the period 1625-29. It is less likely to come up as an essay question and MORE likely to come up as a source.

I feel like these sources are a lot harder to predict but i think 11 year of tyranny question could be possible and the failure of that. [answer is finance]

MAYBE a question on the nature of regicide
