    my mistake the politics one was 'to what extent was the fall of the liberals the most significant development between 1900-1940'
    Yeah

    1)a) why social reforms introduced
    b) was WWI greatest influence

    2)a) appeasement
    b) fear of German biggest influence

    3)a) national government formation
    b) liberal falls most significant

    4)a) women rights?
    b) was suffrageettes movements main influence

    Hey guys,

    i did questions 1 and 2. Foreign and domestic policy in England and Wales basically. I found the questions easy, but the timing quite difficult so i only just finished when they said times up. How did everyone find those questions? I wrote quite a lot, but i think i may have accidentally skipped a couple of pages in the answer booklet because i was in a hurry. Is that okay? Surely they can't penalise me for it right?

    They won't penalise and they'll find it!

    I'm scared because everyone wrote so much...

    I.did the same questions as you!

    I said for the social reform introduction:
    Seebohm Rowntree and his book
    Key figures like David Lloyd George and Livingstone?
    Boer war
    Political competition

    And explained those

    yeah they were really nice questions, i just ran out of time too (so i lost abit of quality on the second questions but idk how they mark it, because still had facts and stuff, just not brilliant detail) I seriously doubt they'll penalise you for it, just a lil mistake!

    My teacher said... People who list loads of reasons don't get high marks.

    20 points listed <<< 3 Points explained

    You can get 24/24 with just three strong developed points, hence I was hoping quality over quantity

    Hope it's the right advice

    Left hand column are the actual marks in the exam. Right hand is what they converted to last year.

    Eg

    Say you got 105/120 in the paper yesterday. You'd receive 120/120 UMS points, which is what your grade counts towards.

    Or 100/120 ---> 113/120 UMS.

    Urmmm... I've no idea... From this I needed 85/120 raw marks to get an A overall... So I hope I have that!

    But tbh, it can range from 70 - 120! (doubt full marks but possible I suppose if they were nice) so 70 min I think

    You?

    There was so much to write with foreign policy and so I had to cut down a lot...

    I only wrote a little bit though :/

    Some people I knew finished the booklet! How?!

    Also, how are everyone's HY2 results? I sat that last year and did Nazi Germany![/QUOTE]

    Appeasement I wrote next to nothing! They were weak and unready for war, France was also weak... Munich agreement

    Fear of Germany I only remember naval race... Something else as well, like Britain signing ententes because they were scared..

    And then furthering trade/protection of empire/collective security/isolation and appeasement.

    I got 67/80 so only just over an A!
