Only a guess tbh. But Kennedy has come up as an essay for the past years so maybe they won’t do him again? And Truman and Nixon came up last year

Any foreign policy and Eisenhower and Johnson domestic policies are what I would be happy. Anything but Ford and Carter tbh

agree on the Ford And Carter part but it’s probably gonna come up now we’ve said this😔 I’m hoping for Truman Domestic/Foreign,Kennedy foreign and nothing about social groups🤞

if they do ask a ford/carter question itll probably be a 25marker instead of a source bc last years and the year before had a source for ford/carter, truman highly doubt a domestic as that was also last year + a few before that - i reckon theyll do johnson civil rights and eisenhower foreign based on like looking at the trends and stuff but obv just a guess lol

Yh I think you’re right. Eisenhower foreign and Johnson civil rights would be okay I feel. What do you think the source will be?

My teacher seems to think Truman foreign policy. But I’ve seen a few people arguing election questions??? Maybe the 1980 or 1968 one. If they do that it’ll be harsh

1968 election is a shout they havent done anything on that yet - they did a 25marker on the 1980 election in 2020. truman foreign might well be too
Guys please let’s write the questions and our way of planning our answers (h
The structure) , thanksssss

How did everyone find it then? I thought the document question was fine. I picked the Truman and Johnson questions and quite liked them

Im happy overall. One mistake i made was saying Johnson spent 120 million dollars and 25 million on the great society but it was billion 😬. How big of a problem is that gonna be
I think you’ll be fine tbh. as long as you don’t have a lot of mistakes. I’m so glad to be done history. Good luck with Results day!!
