I've revised for ages for the exam but i found some of the questions quite hard, completely forgot to revise about the elizabeth barton thing, said she was executed and refused to take oath of supremacy although don't think it was right, for the american west question on the mormons i talked about them becoming self sufficient under the leadership of brigham young and the irrigation system in salt lake city and how they had previously moved from navuoo after joseph smith was killed

For the Elizabeth question, don’t take me 100% for definite but I think it was Cardinal and More who refused to sign the oath of succession, leading them to being beheaded under the treason act?

So I put one feature was her vision of Henry dying if he went ahead with the annulment. I said although many people believed this, Cromwell viewed it as opposition.
The second one I said that she had an influence because of her status of being the nun of Kent, so Cromwell needed to prevent her from spreading opposition to the annulment further.
I think I would have dropped a few marks tho.

For the Mormon one, I spoke about the two points so the Great Salt Lake - I said that Brigham Young prevented facing conflict due to the persecution in Illinois so took an alternative route through greatlands to great salt lake. I said the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints distributed wood and timber to the Mormons so that they could survive and build.. I linked this to the question saying they successfully migrated without tension. 😂😂. Then I used the views on the Mormons, so Christians viewed them as blasphemous due to their lifestyle of polygamy even though their intentions were pure (wanting to free the slaves, wanting peace between PI).
Then I used the Oregon trail? I think it was applicable... anyway I said how from 1846-69 they had bettered the trail for 70,000 Mormons to successfully migrate, creating a system. I went into saying what they did to avoid the fate of the donner party but yeah. Not too sure how I did

The 16 marker Henry one, I did the first question because I revised for hours and hours and hours everything except the grace thing.
My points were so jumbled though...
To disagree I honestly was so stuck. I said about the influence of Anne Boleyn’s family onto Cromwell. Then I made something up about greed, saying Henry’s marriage failure was due to his weak mental health and due to wealth blinding him. I said how Cromwell set up the court of wards in 1840 to emphasise his greed to the point of capitalising off vulnerable children.
To agree I used the marriage treaty, so about international relations, and the Duke of Norfolk who disliked Cromwell’s rising status and being given the title Earl of Essex. This led to the Duke trying to find proof of Cromwell’s disloyalty to Henry; which he did when Henry’s Act of Six Articles in 1839 was announced and Cromwell did not combat against the Protestant opposition.

The annulment question... I definitely lost marks.. I wasn’t even sure what it meant about the Pope? I just said they didn’t have the equal connection that Henry did prior with Pope Leo X when he was given the defender of faith, thus basically meaning that this pope was not willing to accept he made a mistake and risk deformation of character in order to pass the annulment.
I then also did a risky paragraph of my own knowledge about foreign policy aims, the capture of the pope by Charles V... the Pope wasn't willing to consider decisions under the power of Charles, therefore extending Henry’s waiting period into getting an annulment. I said that this shows the difficulty because his relationship was literally interfered by international relations...
my head hurts... Lol

I said following Joseph Smith's death, Brigham Young took over. They were persecuted in the East by the Christians because of their beliefs on polygamy so decided to move to the Great Salt Lake since it was far away from persecution and was uninhabited.
They planned their journey, had a pioneer band that paved the way for the Mormons, packed sufficient food and supplies so they wouldn't turn out like the Donner party and they used Winter Quarters so they could avoid the harsh winter on the plains. This led to them successfully reaching the Great Salt Lake.
There they found the lack of water and timber. Snow melts were used to supply water and they made houses from Spanish bricks (sodhouses) to go around the issue of the lack of wood. They were able to successfully colonise the Great Salt Lake and made the Perpetual Emigrating Fund to support future Mormons that would travel down the Mormon Trail.

Yeah that’s all right! Sounds good. I’m glad I mentioned persecution and the Oregon Trail. I spoke about how Young organised his people into groups, having specialised groups where there were skilled explorers and allowing for the trail to be slightly improved along the way. I totally forgot about the perpetual immigration fund, but I wrote similar.
