I have a feeling the leadership contest, cult or intolerance to diversity will come up for Russia. I would not be happy if collectivisation or if industrialisation and FYPs came up!

For Germany, perhaps Hitler's rise to power? Or intolerance to diversity.

I don't think ideology will come up, as last years paper was ideology heavy.

What do you guys think?
I agree about Hitler's rise to power and intolerance of diversity, or at least that's what I'm hoping for. If intolerance comes up for Russia too then I would be in love with AQA.

I'm weaker when it comes to the Cult of Personalities

Same! History is the A-level I care most about for the A. There's just so much information though

1N was average. Absolutely loved the Hitler questions and the 12 marker for Russia but the Russian 24 marker really ruined the paper.

01: Explain why the USSR was intolerant of diversity in the 1930s
02: How far was the Soviet Union a Marxist state by 1941?


05: Explain why there was a cult of the Fuhrer in Nazi Germany
06: How important was the Nazi ideology in Hitler's establishment of power between 1928 and August 1934?

Yeah, I spent way too long on the Russian one which left me with no time at all for the Germany one which is why I think I struggled!

What did anyone write for the intolerance of diversity for the Russia question and Marxism question?

Also, for the Germany 24marker was it ok to speak about:
Industry and agricultural crisis
Role of the elites
Propaganda
Terror and violence
Intimidation with the SA
Elections
Reichstag fire- Enabling Act and Protection of people and state
And then the death of Hindenburg and Oath of loyalty and say in comparison the ideology wasn't as important as other reasons. Also, i missed out the night of the long knives, will that be ok??

I said the USSR was intolerant due to Marxism, fear of Nazi invasion/Stalin's fear of opposition and Stalin's desire for power.

For the 24 marker I put something along the lines of: it was due to purge of church, collectivisation, industry creating more proletariats, removal of Nepmen and re-educating people through youth groups vs it wasn't because of political rather than economic determinism, still some privatisation, reintroduction of money after War Communism and the fact that there was a dictator/classes still so not everyone was equal. Overall I said by 1941 it was less so due to reopening of the churches due to war... How about you?

I wouldn't worry about not mentioning night of the long knives, you have still put in way more evidence than I did!! What was your overall judgement for this question?
