    Hi guys,
    I'm sitting the F1/F3 questions about Italian Unification and Fascist Italy.
    I was wondering if anyone had access to the January 2012 paper.
    See in my revision, I went through all the questions and picked out 13 questions and did essays on them.
    I'm hoping this is not too risky in that I thought I would just learn all these essay plans, but I wanted to see the January paper to see if say those questions came up, would I have sufficient knowledge?

    Even if anyone just knows the questions, that would still be much appreciated!

    Thank you

    F1 – The Road to Unification: Italy, c1815–70
    1 Why did Piedmont become, and remain, the driving force towards closer Italian unity
    in the years 1848–61?
    (Total for Question 1 = 30 marks)
    2 To what extent can Italy be described as completely unified by 1870?
    (Total for Question 2 = 30 marks)

    F3 – The Collapse of the Liberal State and the Triumph of Fascism in Italy, 1896–1943
    5 How successful were Giolitti’s governments in promoting political stability in Italy in
    the years 1903–14?
    (Total for Question 5 = 30 marks)
    6 How far do you agree that the consolidation of Fascist power in Italy in the years
    1922–29 was mainly due to the use of force and intimidation?
    (Total for Question 6 = 30 marks)

    These ones?

    Hey, does anybody have any advice on how to structure source-based questions for Unit 2 papers? I'm doing Indian independence (Option D), and I didn't know if anyone had advice on how to structure answers to the A and B questions? I'm not worried about the content, I have ages to learn everything I need to, but concerned about exam technique and how to organise the answers :/ Could use some help.

    Hi Guys! I currently am studying the French Revolution and Napoleonic Rule from 1776 -1830, and for Section B of the exam, we got to answer a question either on 'Why did the Constitutional monarchy fail during the years of 1790 -1792 OR we answer "Why did the Napoleonic Empire collapse in the year 1814?" this is a source question in which we receive 3 unseen sources all written by Historians but our teacher said that the exam board edexel want students to analyse the NOPA (Nature, Origin, Purpose and Audience) and say if the source is reliable or not. But the mark scheme has nothing to say that we are going to get marks for reliability and there is nothing you can say if the source is reliable or not because they all are historians and one can't be more reliable than another :/ this is so confusing, so I was going to ask...is there any of you out there who are doing this course of Option B1: France, Revolution and Restoration and been told about this for answering the second question in the exam.

    I thought it went like this

    80% - A
    70% - B
    60% - C
    Is this for GCSE or AS? If it's GCSE the boundaries you've stated are prettymuch right. If it's AS though, it goes like this:
    90% - A
    80% - B
    70% - C

    Anyone doing AS History (Changing role of Women and Nazi Germany and Unification of Germany)? If yes, make sure you always talk about the significance of an event of individual. When comparing the sources for the Women exam, challange the source. Who wrote it? When was it written? I got an A (83 marks) in Women exam and an A (80 marks) in the German Unification and Nazi Germany exam. For the Nazi Germant exam the questions often focus on the Nazi policies towards women/youth/economy or Jews. Or how the Nazi came to power.
