My daughter felt a little anxious regarding the online tutorials as she's not done this before, but felt comfortable as Oscar made the tutorial interesting for her. Also this tutorial has built her present confidence in history as she felt she didn't have much knowledge in the topics. But just this first tutorial made her realised she has a lot of knowledge in the subject.

Questions Oscar has answered

How to get an A* in History GCSE

History can at times seem very difficult to obtain the highest marks. Unlike subjects like Maths and the Sciences there are no definite answers. However, with the right application and right approach getting into the higher bands is not as difficult as you might think. 

Firstly, structure is extremely important. The examiner wants to read an answer that flows and has an argument and is not just a random collection of ideas. Therefore, it is important to come up with a plan of how you are going to tackle a question. By having a good idea of how you are going to answer the question before you start it, the question is made easier for yourself and will be easier for the examiner to mark. By writing an answer that has a sound structre the marker is definitely more likely to be lenient to your cause!

Teachers always bang on about PEA - Point, Example, Analysis and to be fair to them it is important. Similar to having a good structure, PEA makes your answer more impressive and is pretty much essential for obtaining high marks. 

Another good way of impressing markers is by having relevant statistics and information. Providing quotes and stats to back up a point only makes you look good! 

Lastly, as with all humanities and drives everyone round the bend - answer the question. If you do not stick to the task and begin to waffle the marker cannot give you credit. Constantly ask yourself during the exam, is what I'm writing relevant to the question? 

And last but not least: revise! You can't get anywhere without knowing your stuff
