    Thoughts on the paper??? (HL) Noah Thomas

    Going into this exam I was thinking: "Low B, High C", but going out I thought: "High B, Low A"! I did find a few Q6 C and D account Q's a bit difficult (I did Inter-Party and War in the Pacific). Other than that, People in History were nice, Q 5 was nice. Short Q's seemed a bit hard, but not too bad. Q's 1 + 2 were easy enough! :)

    What were your thoughts?

    Oh and what was the answer to the question on the pictures: "What's the area inside the walled courtyard called?" I said a Baliff....don't know if that was right :)

      I thought it was easy enough also. Hoping for an A. U do know u had to right two accounts in each part of question 6. For part D I did the battle of Britain and the war in the Pacific.

      It is not bailey it is a bawn because a bailey is the wall not the enclosed area

      Yeah, I kind of knew it was wrong, but it was worth a shot! :) And @mvalentine I did know you had to answer two :) I was just saying the ones I had trouble on, the other ones were fine! :) I'm hoping for and A!

      Think it went really well, only problem is the paper is only 180 marks so 1 mark lost is almost 1 percent

      Yeah, that's one problem that people could run into! Minor mistakes could affect the result a lot... if there's a lot of minor mistakes :)

      The Bawn is the enclosure inside the wall where as the bailey is the wall itself

      its not the bailey is the huge enclosed area, and the bawn is the stone house undertakers had to build
