Exam boards have been around as long as there have been qualifications offered by schools.
As universities had experience of offering qualifications, such as degrees, it was natural that they created the first exam boards.
Most offer a range of qualifications, though not all boards offer every qualification in every area (Edexcel, for example, offers a great deal of vocational qualifications, while the WJEC and OCR are the only boards to offer A Level Film Studies).
In particular, the ICAAE is very specialised, offering only a small number of business-related GCSEs and is far and away the smallest Ofqual-approved exam board for state schools.
Broadly speaking, the UK has always had two separate school systems: one for England, Wales and Northern Ireland; and one for Scotland.
As a result, two separate sets of exam boards have been developed.CIE is another exception: it is traditionally an international exam board, but now offers the Cambridge Pre-U and Cambridge International Certificate to state schools.Schools and colleges have a completely free choice between the boards, depending on the qualification offered.You talk through how the churches mountef opposition and also use the sources. You use it to backup a point, for example, "Pastor Martin Niemoller done this ..., which is clearly demonstrated in source X as he says.." And then quote.England, Wales and Northern Ireland have several exam boards, with schools and colleges able to freely choose between them on a subject-by-subject basis.Currently, there are seven exam boards available to state schools: Though the exam boards have regional roots (see below), they are all nationwide, though the CCEA is not very active outside of its native Northern Ireland.Although one thing thats different about the paper that we are sitting is the essay questions are going to be more broad than that of previous Cold War papers which is helpful! The factor in the question (which was 'Christian churches mounted the most effective opposition to Nazism') is the tip of the iceberg really.Hey, also doing CCEA History on Cold War x.x the new paper and lack of helpful bulletpoints is going to be quite different, tbh As for the predictions, illmatics is right - but my teacher spoke of the end of the Cold War not often appearing on papers [ unless its a source] as it is a small section of the overall course in the revision booklet Hi Caitlin, i done this paper last year and got 98/100 uniform marks hopefully i can help. So you do your introduction, short and concise, and then start your essay with Christian Church opposition to Nazism as the first paragraph.On the other hand, it can be used to introdixe knowledge.So take a new paragraph and then, for example, say "John says in source Z that youth groups .." And then say "this was evident when some members of the Hitler Jügend formed rival groups such as the Edelweiss Pirates in thos year." Then when you've a good paragraph on young people, move onto the army elites or whatever.
