Make an essay plan for every topic in the advance information and try to memorise them. It’s systematic so it helps me to remember it easily.

I think extracts will be Elizabeth I's foreign policy maybe. Either that or Mid-Tudor socio-economic and religion

They cut out the later years of society though

'The last years of Elizabeth: the state of England politically, economically, religiously and socially by 1603'

so I don't think they can do society for whole reign but they probably could do it a bit earlier - which is why I think they might do Edward, Mary and start of Elizabeth (up to 1563) society and economy stuff

Yeah actually it sounds like the interpretations may be mid Tudor which is good because it’s one of the easier bits aha. Maybe Elizabeth foreign policy essay. Henry VIII something that covers his whole reign and Henry VII

Yeah I think they’ll ask about issues of succession/Mary Queen of Scots for an Elizabeth foreign policy essay as they did Spain in 2019!

Yes - maybe Henry VIII government I reckon? And for Henry VII I’m not sure lol - it could be gov but then Henry VIII would probably be something diff.

Ohh yeah Mary Queen of Scots being a threat or something would be a really good question. Also don’t know if they’re going to cover all the topics they’ve put in the advanced content because it could be something along the lines of ‘Other then becoming head of the Church Henry achieved little’ because then it would cover all the stuff in the advanced. And Henry VII is generally about being secure and stuff unless they do something like Henry VIII ruined Henry’s legacy up to 1529 but then I don’t know if that covers too many years.

Yeah I think so and I think they could even do ‘Issues of succession were the greatest concern of Elizabeth I’s foreign policy’ as that’s on the spec and would tie in nicely with Mary Queen of Scots!

Ooo yes that would be a good question actually.

I’m thinking they might do a Henry VIII and Henry VII legacy one actually as it is on the spec and they haven’t asked it before!

I assume you mean the one on Mary Q of Scots. You would do one para which suggests issues of succession were the greatest concern of foreign policy (talk about Mary Q of Scots as a rival claimant, and marital alliances potentially as it links to producing an heir?), then you could do your 2nd and 3rd para on something else being a greater threat.

You could do Spain just generally, or you could do defence from invasion, and maybe championing Protestantism (e.g. in Netherlands). That is, if you stick to advance info for f.p., as there is ofc more to say there.

Same I feel like I know the content as well as I ever can at this point but I’m scared they’ll ask a question which throws me off.

like when they did the ‘Local issues were the most significant reason for rebellion under Henry VII’ I was sat there (I did it as practice) wondering what they were meaning by local issues.

Another essay idea- something like ‘Henry VIII was never in control of England/his ministers ruled on his behalf’

Yes I think it could defo be on ministers

Another potential is ‘to what extent was there a mid Tudor crisis?’ as you could link it to the religious, social and economic bits on the spec although I do think a q like that would have to focus on a specific like religion as otherwise it invites you too much to discuss political which was taken off
