What people are saying about GCSE History Paper 2 on The Student Room

cold war paper was good but for the prague spring question i talked about the soviet crackdown on dubcek as a consequence and how the reforms were ended, does that even count as a consequence or is that considered part of the prague spring itself


Really great! Elizabeth + cold war (cold war narrative could've been better)


Decent overall (king richard and John and super power relations)

Cold war narrative could've had more useful prompts
