What is the best way to right responses to SAC/Exam questions (for 5 marks)
Revs has changed a bit since I did it, but I think the most important thing is to never get sucked into writing a narrative. Practice writing lots of responses so you get good at doing succinct and to the point responses that provide all the details necessary, but don't fall into the trap of just writing what happened - Revs is about understanding the significance of events and the consequences they had.

Hi!
I did Revs early and I loved it, great to see other year 11s taking on the subject as well :).
Whilst I personally didnít do the American Revolution, I would recommend you check out websites like Alpha History (this bit in particular: https://alphahistory.com/americanrevolution/american-revolution-whos-who/). It lists all the key individuals involved in the revolution (AOS 1 and 2), and provides a brief summary of their life and how they contributed to the revolution (for some individuals, you may need to draw your own conclusions). I found it really useful for the Russian and Chinese revolution.
In addition, your textbook will also likely have sections focused on individuals specifically, and if all else fails, ask your teacher!
Hope this helped :)

With source analysises, how do you refer to a source more than once in a response? My teacher says i need to refer to the source multiple times throughout it, but i'm not quite sure how to do so.

Hey RCircles!

I don't have anything specific for revs but since this is a bit of a broad question, you might find this article on improving speed, neatness, and legibility as a good starting point.

Hey agehaglow!

Welcome to the forums! I don't know the specifics of VCE Revs, but referencing is usually course independent so I thought I'd chip in. If this is an exam style response, you can generally refer to sources simply as they are provided (eg. Source A, B, etc) but if this is a research task, you'll need to follow your school's referencing guide (eg. APA, Harvard, Oxford, etc).

Some keywords to lookout for are ibid, op cit, and et al, which are latin abbreviations used to reference "as above" but as always, make sure you check with your assigned referencing style to make sure you're using them correctly. For example, you may be expected to use in source citation or footnotes, which each have specific formatting rules.

Example footnotes with a source referenced multiple times

Know your content inside out and have phrases you frequently use. It helped me, anyhow. (Still didn't do well, but that was more from an awful, awful exam than anything else.)
