    Because the Russia in Revolution weren't all that difficult (and I've heard the same about a few others) and it was a retakes only group do we think the grade boundaries might actually be higher i.e. 47-49 for an A?

    Did anyone do the 'threat to Mao's leadership' question for Mao's China? I had much less material for one side so had an imbalanced argument - did you try for a balanced argument?

    Sounds like I'm the only idiot who attempted the Korea question. The familiarity of the Vietnam question to last year's exam gave me the Fear™
    Also did African American protests

    I would of never chosen Vietnam last year but my teacher said to focus more on Vietnam. There is more to talk about for Vietnam than Korea, Korea is boring hahaa. If you are the only one doing Korea that's good, makes ya stand out so a smart choice :-)

    Did seriously threaten:
    Famine due to GLF threatening Mao's reputation
    Popularity of Xiaoping + Shaoqi within CCP
    Youth disillusioned by '...to the countryside campaign'
    Deng Xiaoping returning to power

    Did not threaten:
    Cultural rev strengthening Mao's power
    Political purges =victory in power struggle
    Power over youth
    Control in areas such as Tibet + Xinjiang

    BUT it is no use having good content if your structure is flawed. Had basically no time left so put all my points for 'did threaten' in one chaotic paragraph without much expansion, and concentrated on the other side more, producing a very unbalanced argument so have also basically messed it up.

    Any other things you included? What was your structure, timing etc like?

    Massive is a lot easier to read though - will just have to hope that my examiner is good at making out script like mine I guess.

    No i did the economic successes and failures

    How it helped to establish Stalin's position so political success

    Finally social failures - famine + dekulakisation

    For Johnson and Nixon I said:
    1) both of them were unable to win because of the strength of NVA/Vietcong
    2) both of them were able to win because of their failed tactics
    3) Johnson was unable to win partly because of opposition from the public however it came at the end of his presidency and so opposition is more of a factor for Nixon who experienced public opposition throughout his first term

    I did the Civil Rights and Vietnam questions. For the civil rights; I answered the question about the war. A basic outline of my answer was that I argued that the war HAD led to changes; eg through increasing political power and economic power etc but failed to end segregation etc.... I approached this a successes and failures question but my classmates and teacher answered it as a factor question?? what did you guys do?? I'm freaking out!!!!!!

    Yeah, that's what I got. It's kind of hard to write about the positives of a policy which killed millions of people though.
