    I don't like Vietnam either, really dont like it but I managed to find this pattern in the past papers and so I hope this helps mate.

    2010 - Early Cold War Cartoon
    2011 - Vietnam Cartoon
    2012 - Cuban Missile Crisis Cartoon

    2013 - Early Cold War Cartoon
    2014 - Vietnam Cartoon
    2015 - Cuban Missile Crisis Cartoon

    2016 - Early Cold War Cartoon?
    I am almost certain that this years compulsory source question will be on: The Early Cold War
    Thank you so much,that's so helpful. I literally never noticed there was a pattern I thought it was just random.

    Hi!
    I couldn't find a thread for specific History modules so I thought I'd start one!
    Idk what the purpose of this thread should be but I guess a good way to go is by asking for help and helping others.

    To make things easier, 'introduce' yourself with:
    -Paper one topic and code (if known)
    -Paper two topic and code (if known)
    -Any predictions you have
    -Are you confident for the exam?

    To start the ball rolling, I'm doing:
    Paper 1: Aspects of International Relations (USA with Cold War, AO13)
    Paper 2: How British Society Changed (1890-1918, AO21)

    I think the compulsory question for the Cold War will be Causes of The Cold War with the choices being Vietnam and Cuba and overall, I feel pretty confident for the exam
    OMG I'm doing the same exam! I'm kind of scared about it though

    Here are the grade boundaries for last years Aspects of International Relations with Germany:

    Out of 81
    A*-62
    A-54
    B-46
    C-39
    D-34
    E-29
    F-24
    G-19

    Here's the link to last years grade boundaries if you're doing a different topic:
    http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/246983-...ludes-gcse.pdf
    Go to page 36.

    I'm doing the Aspects of International Relations with Germany and I'm really nevous. I often get B's in the mock exams and I got an A8 in my coursework. I can do the Cold War and the Cuban Missile Crisis, however I just cannot seem to understand the chronology of the Vietname War. I understand all the tactics and protests, but I just don't understand what actually happened. As for Germany, I can do up until about 1932, and I can do all of Hitler's policies, however I can't understand Hitler's rise to power, with von Papen, the Reichstag Fire and Enabling Act.
    Anyone got any tips for revising as I've left it quite late and I am hopefully aiming for a B or an A.

    I'm doing paper 1: aspcts of international relations: Germany and a new world
    paper 2: british depth study 1939-75

    I'm an A* student, I find that many people struggle with the 10 markers but you literally have to write three paragrapghs:
    1. for
    2. against (depending on the question, 1o markers usually ask your opinion of astatement or the significance of an event)
    3. conclusion, (summaray of what your arhument would be after judging the argumebts fro and against, make sure you don't add any extra points to what you've previouslty mentioned)
    I found that suprising. At my school they tell us in order to get the 2 marks for the conclusion (eg from 8 to 10 marks) you have to summerise and then add something new evidence wise to support your overall view....

    For 10 marks we have to write: "I agree to some extent..." (and then write why you agree - about 2 developed points) and then "On the other hand I disagree because..." (and then write 2 developed points).

    Both sides must be balanced !! You cant have loads more for against than your for arguments. Or else the maximum mark you can get is 8.

    For the conclusion, my teacher said to think of it as an evaluation. It should be a short paragraph where you state your opinion and explain HOW FAR you agree or disagree and maybe use one of your earlier points to back it up or bring up a new, smaller, point to help justify your point. - Hope this helps, im sure therr are different techniques but I never get less than a 9 so I think it works well !!

    Paper 1: Cold War and WW1
    Paper 2: British Depth Study

    I'm really not sure what will come up this year, but I heard that they have changed the format of the papers or changed the number of allocated marks for the paper? Does anyone have any idea who could explain it to me please?

    I am feeling fairly confident, I got an A* for my coursework piece on the civil rights movement of the USA, so hopefully all will go well. Good luck everyone!
    I was told they changed the number of allocated marks on Paper 2 only. The last question used to be 12 marks but they have changed it to 16 now.

    There was a Nazi Germany source and then
    Weimar -
    Describe the Spartacist rising of Jan 1919
    Why did the Kapp Putsch take place in 1920?
    'The Weimar Republic never recovered from the events of its early years'

    Rise of Hitler-
    Describe how the Nazis used the Depression in their political campaigns
    Explain why Hitler was appointed Chancellor in Jan 1933
    How far was the Munich Putsch a disaster for the Nazis?

    Hey, I'm also doing Cold War, Vietnam and Cuban missile crisis and Nazi Germany for paper one does anybody have any predictions on what will come up as the compulsory source question- my teacher thinks Vietnam but I really hope it isn't because it's the one topic I haven't clicked with and id like to avoid it if I could.
    I'm exactly the same as you! Vietnam is the one topic I haven't revised and don't know many dates for (though I know my basic stuff) and am PRAYING that it doesn't come up. It came up as the compulsory source question in 2014 and I just hope they do Cold War 2 years in a row since many people suspect it to be Vietnam so I'm hoping OCR plays on that and gives Cold War instead.
