Now we have reached the ‘home straight’, it is time to start applying the knowledge we have revised to exam questions. On the presentation below, which can be downloaded as a PDF or as a power-point file, there is a collection of exam questions from 2010 onwards.
What should you do with them?
- Have a go at answering them! I will mark anything you bring me. Feedback at this point is very helpful.
- Plan answers to 10 mark questions – remember that the examiner is looking for explanation, balance and evaluation (HOW important are the different reasons / factors you’ve examined).
- Practice writing 4 mark questions in 4 minutes – see if you can get it down to 3!
- Do a ‘knowledge dump’ – write down all the facts (dates, events, key words) you can think of in relation to a question then check it against the mark scheme and your knowledge organisers.
REMEMBER! SELF-TESTING IS KEY!!
