    How did everyone find it? I did international relations(The Inter-war years) with the USA, filled the 8 page booklet and 2 of the extra 2 page booklets, so about 11/12 pages in total. Thought it was pretty easy.
    I thought it was pretty easy, what did you interpret the source on international relations as? I had a 12 page booklet and filled it all so quite pleased

    But no-one in my year has ever been taught about Bolshevism, EVER. So why did it come up? It wasn't even on the spec
    We were given a brief powerpoint at the start of the, nothing serious. But a lot of my year didn't get it either, so it's orite! My friend made a guess at communism as Bolvesism sounded Russian :lol:

    Let's just say I shouldn't expect an A*....

    Does anyone know where I can find a source analysis for the initial source of the Paris Peace Conference?
    I've been googling and couldn't find it anywhere it was called the final touch or something

    I cant remember the exact wording but it was something like "the structure and organisation of the league of nations was why it failed in 1930s". I wasnt sure how to answer it, for and against, or to link in other reasons?

    Oh I didnt do it because it was hard I did question 3. But you would talk about that and other reasons why it failed. I did 'hitler was to blame for the war' I talked about the steps to war then other reasons like the policy of appeasement and league of nations

    did anyone do International relations (the first page) and then Russia (Stalin etc)

    personally have never heard of 'Saar' which was the topic of one of the questions and neither have my classmates.

    found the paper very hard - suggestions?

    That wolf question was awful! It's ridiculous as the Bolsheviks are covered in the Russia depth study in the OCR revision guide?

    Yehh.. it acts as a mechanism to show what could happen to the German peope if they supported the spartacist uprisings in January 1919. Its published by the weimar republic to show they devastation caused by communism, so to encourage people not to support them, and support the weimar democracy

    something on the lines of that reallyyy........
