    Is anyone doing America? Immigration, kkk, Martin Luther King etc. If so, what do you predict might come up?
    Yay! Finally someone else doing USA!

    According to the SQA, these are the possible topics:

    1. An evaluation of the reasons for changing attitudes towards immigration in the 1920s.
    2. An evaluation of the obstacles to the achievement of civil rights for black people up to 1941.
    3. An evaluation of the reasons for the economic crisis of 1929-33.
    4. An assessment of the effectiveness of the New Deal.
    5. An evaluation of the reasons for the development of the Civil Rights campaign, after 1945.
    6. An assessment of the effectiveness of the Civil Rights movement in meeting the needs of black Americans, up to 1968.

    Having looked at past papers, I don't think that topic 5 will come up because it was in both the 2012 and 2011 papers, but I think it's likely that either 1 or 2 will come up as one of those has been in each past paper since 2007. Other than that, I'll probably learn an essay for topic 6 just to be on the safe side.

    Here's a quick list I've made about question frequency which might help you;

    Britain

    Effectiveness of Liberal Reforms – II – 2011/2010
    Effectiveness of Labour Reforms – III – 2010/2009/2007
    Analysis of Progress of Democracy – III – 2010/2009/2007
    Causes of Liberal Reforms – II – 2008/2007
    Causes of Growth of Democracy – II – 2011/2008

    America

    Immigration hostility causes – II – 2011/2009
    Problems faced by black Americans 1920s (M.E.S.) – III – 2010/2008/2007
    Causes of growth of Civil Rights campaigns (50s-60s) – II – 2011/2010
    Reasons for improvements for black Americans (to 1968) – II – 2010/2008
    Success of black radicals (60s) – I – 2009
    Concerns of the Civil Rights campaigns (50s-60s) – I – 2007

    (I've left out the suffragettes & economics for America as we didn't do economics in class and I hate writing about women and the vote)

    I with you both too, USA and Britain. What are you guys expecting to come up I'm praying for Liberals or Labour for Britain because, although I know the development of democracy its not my strong point due to all the dates. I did immigration for my extended essay (which my teacher said was an A so hopefully that helps me a lot) so I don't know if I can do that again? I did civil rights in the pre-lim but didn't answer it correctly causing me to fail(6 out of 20oops haha) so I'm hoping I answer it correctly this time round. What are you most confident in?

    I'm probably most confident with the Liberals and Labour. Is it likely that at least the liberal or labour gov will come up? For USA I'm most confident with the Civil Rights groups and immigration 1920s.

    I haven't really focused on America yet but I find civil rights easy to write an essay on (excluding the pre-lim haha) I haven't EVER done a depression essay and we haven't revised new deal. I recently did liberal motives for a NAB and got an A so I'm hoping that comes up!

    Change of plan for my revision. Seeing as I only really have 3 full days left of revision, I doubt I'd be able to get 6 essays memorised in that time. Normally it would take me a day to just memorise 1, nevermind fit 2 in one day. I think I'm just going to now go for the easier option of typing up essay plans from essays I already have and then memorising those instead since I've wasted 4 days of not revising.

    The extended essay makes up 30% of your final grade.

    I'm learning issues 2, 4 and 6 since they didn't appear last year and one will have to appear to make it a different paper. If I have time (which I doubt), I might also add in issue 1 since it only appeared last year and not 2010 unlike the other questions that appeared last year.

    I think you mean 1, and it's Britain. Although if you do mean paper 2, it's the impact of the Great War on Scotland.

    I love reasons for Liberal reforms, I caress with pleasure the assessment of Liberal reforms, but I find the Labour essay quite repugnant. I really hope that one of the former two appear, along with, for Russia, why the Reds won the Civil War, or the reasons for the 1905 revolution. If issues 4 & 6 appear I will achieve optimum peace of mind.
