    Can someone please tell me how many different questions they can ask about the nazis/ hitter between the period of 1920-33
    The three main questions I think they could ask are;

    How serious a political movement were the Nazi party between 1920 and 1929?

    Why was Hitler appointed Chancellor in January 1933? (They will usually ask this by providing a stated factor and you argue for and against it ie Hitler's skills as a politician)

    How did Hitler and the Nazis consolidate their power in 1933? (Again, will probably be a stated factor given)

    They may ask a bit more narrowly something like;

    What caused an increase in Nazi popularity between 1928 and 1932?

    This is an incredible essay!! If you don't mind me asking, did your teacher make it clear why two marks were deducted for source work? Of course it's a very picky question, and 38 is an amazing score, but I only ask as I thought your source evaluation was a particular strength! Thank you
    I lost marks in AO2b mainly on a rushed conclusion I wrote in the final two minutes of the lesson; if the conclusion was more rounded and "fully substantiated" according to the mark scheme, I could have gotten full marks. AO1a/b (Source analysis) is quite simple to gain full marks in if you read the mark scheme. The key points in the mark scheme is to make sure "selected material directly addresses the focus of the question", as well as "Candidates demonstrate explicit understanding of the key issues raised by the question, evaluating arguments and – as appropriate – interpretations.The analysis will be supported by an appropriate range and depth of accurate and well-selected factual material."

    This comes naturally when you totally know a subject area, you can point out inaccuracies in some sources or argue that their opinion holds partial weight because X happened, however, they omit that Y happened. Historiography is essential as well when evaluating sources, as you must know when they were produced according to the timeline. I'll post my revision notes on historiographical change throughout the century.

    tl;dr: Make sure the quotes you use from the sources relate to the question, and you use your knowledge to support/refute historians.

    There's 4 topics that can come up and only a certain number of questions can be asked for each of them.
    As for the wording, they ask you to argue which factor is more important and give you a stated factor in the question. The factors vary each time so just make sure to know all the relevant factors

    I thought Hitler's consolidation of power was unit 4? My teacher is betting unit 6 to come up this year.

    Yeah some colleges don't do the second controversy (which is unit 7 and 8 combined for section B) and miss out WW2 - that's absolutely fine and you will still have enough content to pass the exam (I'm not revising unit 7 and 8)

    No this is how we've been taught:

    Unit 1: the second reich
    Unit 2: first controversy: Germany blame for WW1
    Unit 3: Weimer republic
    Unit 4: Germany rise to power
    Unit 5: second controversy
    Unit 6: Life in wartime Germany

    my edexcel history textbook also only has 6 units.
