    What are you predicted usually for history?
    My predicted grade was an A* but I think my teacher just has false hope in me because I did alright in the mock paper (which was a godsend compared to this :lol:). You?

    For me it's complicated tbh, when I came here (2 years ago) I was new... so usually was sitting on C's and D's; in unit 1 however I almost got an A but that was months ago, hope I've improved haha. As long as you try your best it's all fine.

    Haha <3 thank you. Well that's what I meant, as long as you put in the effort, it doesn't matter at the end of the day as long as you know you've done everything you could in order to achieve it. You'll be fine!
    How confident do you feel about unit 2? You do the Vietnam section, right?

    how did everyone find the GCSE AQA HISTORY B exam? I answered questions from topic 1, 2 and 3. It went okay for me I guess, but found some questions difficult.

    No problem Thanks
    Meh, haven't really looked at unit 2 for a while but I think there are less events and its more about knowing all the stats etc instead :/ I hate the exam format though (10 mark source question and 12 mark essays ).
    I'm not confident about Vietnam though. What other topics do you do? I do Tsarist Russia and then Stalin's Russia

    I just wrote that I agree with it and then I said there are also other reason as to why Solidarity was succesful such as Reagan's support and it's popularity. Hopefully i'm not mistaken

    shiiiittt lol that sounds right I'd never heard of the church in this course so I just said something along the lines of Lech Walesa being the founder so he's the one who made it successful

    For the solidarity success question: I wrote how such a large proportion of Poland were Catholic and the Pope was Polish and came to give speeches and encouraged strikes and stuff. Then I wrote about other things like their reforms and support from USA, then about reliability of source.

    But for the Helsinki question...... The only thing I knew was that it was in 1975 and the question told you that. Lol that was a fail XD
