So I am currently studying A-Level History and would like some tips on how to structure an essay.
I recently sat my first Year 12 mock (on Monday) and got 14/20 on a question about Lydon Baines Johnson's Civil Rights Campaign.
I am studying,
- America: Conformity and Challenge, 1955-92
- Britain Transformed, 1918-97
Any help on essay structures, exam techniques or extra reading materials would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

Hi! I’m currently studying Edexcel A2 (IAL) History and that’s how I (usually) structure my essays:

You can divide your essay into 5 sections:
1st paragraph: Introduction to the question
2nd-3rd: paragraph(s) on the stated fact
4th: what you think
5th-6th: paragraph(s) with different factors
7th: Conclusion

Also try to use phrases like: more importantly or less significantly

Don’t forget to always refer back to the question and back up everything you say with a fact, statistic or date, person, quote, place etc. Also always try to think how the stated fact affected the different social groups etc.

Lastly remember not to introduce anything brand new in your conclusion, just summarise what you have said and reach a judgement (as most questions what you to reach a judgement)

Hope it helps!

hey, what do you study for edexcel history ? trying to make a WhatsApp gc, I’ll past what I’ve posted

Looking for students studying EDEXCEL History & EDEXCEL Politics to create a WhatsApp study & revision group.

NO AS STUDENTS PLEASE ONLY A LEVEL STUDENTS

A small group of around 5 people who are committed, serious & are willing to support and share advice/notes when needed. It saves us a lot of time & our main focus will be retaining information & doing weekly past exam questions & creating & learning essay plans.

I know that a lot of a level students who got the top grades told me that when cohesively working with small groups, who are focused and determined to get the grades they want & need, they’re more likely to achieve it with support of people likeminded

Must be serious & committed **

- edexcel politics; UK & GLOBAL
- edexcel history; Britain transformed, 1920’s America boom bust & recovery & British empire

If you’re interested please message me your number ASAP x
I'm studying Britain Transformed and America Conformity and Challenge
