CIE AS History 9389 – exam advice for Paper 2 Part (a) questions

exam tips

This podcast has been created specifically for students studying the CIE AS History course (syllabus code 9389).  My advice comes from reading the examiner’s report, which is written by the chief examiner – that’s the person in charge of marking all your exam papers – in which they explain what students do well in the exam and what needs to be improved.

The podcast provides an overview of the paper, how to make the most of the time in the exam, and goes on to discuss the way to approach Part (a) questions on Paper 2.  It suggests a generic essay structure that you may find helpful, and gives other general tips on how to ensure your answer meets the marking criteria.  Tips and warnings drawn from common mistakes that students make in the exam are also provided.
