    Yes I was really annoyed about having to edit mistakes for other topics. Time in history is so valuable!

    Overall I thought the exam went well. Disappointed there wasn't a Nazi question but thanking the high heavens I sat and revised a bit of nationalism right before the paper. Paper 2 was great, although the first question was a tad odd but I'm praying for an A or B.

    I made a terrible mistake - I accidentally answered the wrong question in the Germany unit in a state of panic. The answer was clearly for nationalism but I put it down as the unification question. Is it possible to get more than ten marks for an error as big as that? Or even ten marks? I'm terrified I'm going to get 0.

    Paper 2 was good though, so was Britain

    They mark it as the question it appears to be and then decide how to penalise you for putting it as the wrong question, usually they don't penalise at all though and if they do it's minimal

    Did you just write down the wrong question?
    If not, then that sucks. But even still, the SQA want you to do well (or it reflects poorly on them). It may agitate them, but the marker will search for marks to give you. Also, if your introduction and conclusion are good then you can gain up to 4 marks. I've never heard of anyone getting 0 marks before to be honest. If your other essay, paper two and extended essay are strong you can still easily achieve a great mark!

    I am not 100% sure but there is a slight chance you got 0 since a few people did exactly that in my prelim and they got 0/20

    The history exam went really well for me today. I am so glad I studied four essays for each unit - after all, you need to study four out of the possible six to make sure you get a question. For those of you who didn't learn enough essays, don't worry. You can still get marks for your other essay, your extended essay and paper 2. If you wrote anything for the essay you weren't sure of, you could still gain marks.

    However, I think this serves an excellent example of why predicting essays does not work! Both pupils and teachers need to realise that the essays that are chosen at random! Not once in this thread have I seen someone posting their teacher's predictions that turned out completely correct. At best, teacher's predictions are just as lucky as a stranger guessing. For anyone sitting Higher History next year, make sure you learn four essays for each unit to guarantee that you'll be able to perform to the best of your ability on the day. And to the teachers who only teach their pupils parts of units because they think they know which essays will appear in the exam, shame on you for putting convenience before the your pupils' results.

    Good luck with the rest of your exams, everybody, and for the 5th of August.

    I'm actually not really sure what I wrote it's all a complete blur - I think it was the tears. Our whole class had been told just to revise Italian fascism but of course it didn't come up.

    Thank you so much though, that makes me feel a lot better. Even those 4 marks for structure would still be something. As long as they don't negatively mark anything I might also get at least one mark for argument!
