Has war and violence been the main factor in causing the settlement of people in Britain?
Explain your answer with reference to war and violence and other factors.
Use a range of examples from across your study of Migration, empires and the people:

First Paragraph: Is the factor of war. You cannot get more than at least 10 marks if you don't talk about war. Use examples. E.g. The windrush migrated from West Inides and emigrated to Britain. Then talk about the importance of this. This is important becuase...

Second and third paragraph is two different factors. E.g. Economy and Religion. Use examples: Economy - Irish Famine. Religion - Jewish Persecution, Huguenots. Talk about the importance. Also talk about what they have done to Britain. Huguenots were skilled craftsmen. Irish people created roads and canals in the industrial revolotion.

Conclusion - Justfied argument. You might disagree and think economy might be the main factor. E.g. the irish famine as disease spreaded around ireland so many people emigrated to britain.

This should get you around 15-20 marks.

Thanks so much! I really do appreciate it. Do you think Seneca alone with exam prep be sufficient for a high grade?

Maybe a grade 5 or 6. But you need to ask your history teacher what's lacking you from getting a high grade. I am predicted a 5. My teacher has been ill for most of this year. We have a cover teacher who knows nothing. 2 history teachers left and my other history teacher is on maternity leave and we are only left with one history teacher. So I do revision myself and use GCSEPod for paper 1 and paper 2 except for migration as GCSE Pod don't do migration. I also understand the exam structure and I alsoi understand the mark scheme. We also had a professional history teacher for a month but then he left. So yeah it was very hectic for me so I had to do it all by myself. If I get a 5 or above I would be very pleased. I am really good on migration and Elizbeth. But not good at cold war and germany.
