Don’t forget that our pre-exam booster breakfast is tomorrow [Monday] from 8:15. We will be recapping some key examples, and reminding you of key skills with some example questions and answers.

What a brilliant turn out yesterday! It was brilliant to see you, and it was brilliant that you worked so hard across the 4 hours. And the pizza? That was brilliant too, so well done everyone. All of the revision resources, podcasts, videos, and games are available from the International Relations page, and the USA boom and bust page. The revision dominoes that we used will really help you push your knowledge beyond the C grade, so keep practising.
Remember that yesterday was a kick start to your half term revision. You now need to continue to revise for Monday. The plan that I put together for you, with timings and suggested activities, is online.
