    What do people think might come up for the German Depth Study side? My teacher thinks that it might be the later years with all the youth stuff and strenth through joy etc. because the later years apparently haven't come up ? (though I don't know how true this is)

    I think strength through joy etc.. has cone up before as I think the question was about the Nazi economic policies. But it was a long time ago so it could come up again. I think it has a good chance of coming up tomorrow, as well as women and the Hitler youth as they havent come up for ages (at least I hope one of them comes up) I think the source questions might be based more around Weimar as that hasnt come up for ages either. Im not really sure though tbh, just try and learn as many facts and dates as they make you sound smart aha

    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.
    Im like the complete opposite I really like and understand the vietnam stuff. But my worst is the orgins of the cold war (which I know a lot of people have predicted as apparently theres some sort of trend with the compulsory questions) I feel a bit more confident with the orgins after a lot of revision today but Im scared its going to be some extremely impossible, badly worded question

    Wow if these come up then I'm set )) I just struggle with structure a lot. I tend to waffle on (to put all the facts in lol) and sometimes end up not answering the question properly I dunno I mess up answering the question somehow even though I know the facts.

    Same + omg I know what you mean, I literally do the same thing. My teacher said that for 6 marks to make 1 clear developed point then stop and look at the question again, and then in another paragraph to do the 2nd developed point. In 10 marks to just agree with the statement (2 developed points) and then disagree (2 developed points) and hen have a few lines of an evaluative conclusion. Its so hard not to ramble, but I just try and slow down and think for a second what its actually asking me aha I used to make a little plan before writing, so that might work for you?

    Thanks! The thing is I kinda know these already but I guess right then in the exam my head freezes up but I'll take your advice and try to slow down thanks a lot

    and do you know how to answer the "message of the cartoon[ist]" questions? I tend to open it up by saying the purpose/message straight away cause saying that alone apparently will get you like 3 or 4 marks and then pick out details and contextual knowledge? I should check past mark schemes. I'll do that now

    For the message sources no matter what you do always remember to state the explicit message because it gives you the most marks. Then add contextual knowledge to reinforce your interpretation that the main message is what you think. My teacher also mentioned that in a recent examiners report they expressed that marks are awarded for mentioning the tone e.g. ' It criticises Hitler' and what that implies.If you mention all that you should be fine ☺️.
