Basically, Henry viii + Wolsey and the mid Tudor crisis

First of all, see if you can find series 1 of The Tudors featuring Jonathan Rhys Meyers. This may not be entirely factual but should give you the general gist. Far more importantly, it should give you a mental image of these characters and a wider sense of the environment that they operate in. I'd recommend this series as it is very detailed on Wolsey.

Next, get the textbooks out and look at the key events and dates. For big dates, remember months and years. For little events, the year will do.

Next, look at what the key debates and arguments (the specification gives you these) are and start to put them into tables of For/Against, create mind maps, practice essay plans.

Does anyone have any resources for the England 1547–1603: the Later Tudors paper?
In addition, does anyone have any guided predictions of what the paper will be on?

Yeah there's never been one on wilderness years yet, and that should hopefully be easy enough
Conservative domination was on the 2021 paper though so that might not be too likely
