    1894-1905 seriousness of opposition, and 1905-1914 I wish I'd done the consolidation of power rather than the seriousness of opposition though
    I was deciding between those two as well. In the end, due to how much more knowledge I had on Stalin's use of terror, propaganda, and his cult, over that of the work of Sergei Witte and 1894-1905, I decided to do the consolidation.

    The wording of the consolidation question threw me off so I didn't do it, regret it now as I think I messed up the other one a bit

    1921-24 consolidation of power is way too small of a topic for a 50 marker. Never asked before either.

    I agree, I'd revised Lenin and the Bolshevik consolidation of power but a lot of it was 1918 so I didn't have enough knowledge to do it... Loved the Power Struggle question though

    Yeah, that question was alright, Did you do the 1905 question too?

    Yeah, I wasn't quite sure how to organise it so it probably wasn't the best essay ever though

    Same, I think everyone would be in a similar boat - it wasn't a question asked before.

    All three of them haven't been asked before.

    The power struggle was asked in Jan 2009, on the first exam paper they did I think

    They haven't asked a power struggle one since the first exam so I kind of naively negoected it in terms of revision. Had to answer it though by process of elimination, what the he'll was that second question and how were we meant to write an essay on it? Smashed the 1905 one although may have gone slightly off topic - didn't really know how to include Stolypins land reforms etc but I mentioned it saying that he needed them to restore his absolute authority in the countryside.

    Luckily I revised rise to power just before the exam, but still the 'division and weakness' was slightly awkward to tackle. The *******s didn't include 1917 or the Civil War which I thought was certain to pop up. The 1905 one got me, not because I didn't know the material, but because I didn't know how to organise my essay. In the end I made a cluster**** of mismatching paragraphs. I gave a point about how it conceded some political authority, but in actual fact, the political freedoms offered in manifesto weren't adhered to, and that the Duma was nullified with fundamental laws/bicameralism. Also talked a bit about Stolypin...

    Got 70/100 last year on this, definitely haven't improved imo.

    I was hoping for power struggle, civil war and October Revolution :lol:
    I revised the power struggle because it was one of my favourite topics and found it one of the easiest to organise when I was doing the essays throughout the year.
    My 1905 one was really disorganised, I didn't know how far past the actual revolution to go

    I had the same problem with 1905, and talked about the same sort of things, but with talking about the army and Potemkin too
