UPDATE: There have been some problems downloading these from the Google Docs website - many apologies for this. We will try and fix the problem but in the meantime please note that these are all available in the "A2 Triumph of Elizabeth" section of the Curriculum Shared Area. Please see Mr Coy for more details...
Here are updated lists of questions for the A2 Triumph of Elizabeth exam.
This first list includes the questions from the specimen paper and last year's exam paper.
This list includes all of the questions from the older papers. Not all of them are relevant but they may help jog your memories when revising.
This document is a bit different. It includes details of some of the main historians encountered in the course and significant books they have written. Underneath each historian is a blank space. This is where you can add further information about their particular interpretations on key issues or helpful quotations that sum up their point of view. The document is collaborative which means you can add your own changes (a bit like Wikipedia). Some points on Edward VI have been included to give you an idea but the rest is up to you! (Please be careful with it though and try not to accidentally delete anything). It is also available in Word Format for you to print out.
Please can you let Mr Coy
