    Due to the Afghan war and Reagan outspending them the soviet economy suffered which led to less power and Gorbachev had to make reforms as he couldn’t compete with the the USAs wealth power and therefore international influence. This led to reforms like glasnost and perestroika and with other contributing factors like solidarity in Poland caused the sudden and rapid fall in communism throughout Eastern Europe.

    Reallyy hope this helps :biggrin:

    Yeah it was decent but last 10 marker was a bit strange. The sources weren't too bad but you never know.

    OMG... I feel so glad none of the new spec bs came out tbh haha, apart from the 4 marks question which I messed up for sure. Any idea of the grade boundaries? How many marks is usually an A?

    Yeah I did the same topics I found the sources really hard though - messed up the first one because I completely forgot my exam technique. And I've never heard anything about the Roman Catholic Church in Solidarity either
