    Did anyone else think the 9 mark question on the League of nations was a bit ambiguous? It said explain why it was established, it could have meant the reasons for its existence, like peace, independence etc, but it could have mean how it came to exist. I just talked about peace, independence, disarmament and social aims, what do you people think?

    The one at the beginning? Yeah - I thought it was stretching it a little. I just spoke about how it wanted to achieve the aims set out by Wilson's 14 points, and then went onto say how it could achieve them (like collective security, or trade sanctions)

    I mentioned the four aims: to encourage disarmament, to discourage aggression between nations, to encourage relationships between nations (including trade and business), and to improve living and working standards throughout the world. I think that's what it was getting at, to be honest. Although if it's any consolation, I only mentioned those specifically towards the end of my answer! I mean, my answer basically consisted of those four things, but I only mentioned the four key aims towards the end. Until then I'd rambled on about Wilson's ideologies of the League, how he hoped to "carve lasting peace and justice from the ruins of the First World War". I think I mentioned a bit about how Clemenceau/Wilson/Lloyd George all wanted different things from the League at first. ie. Clemenceau wanted a strong League with an army, LG just wanted it to meet occasionaly, and Wilson wanted it to be a proper world parliament. I mentioned the various commitees too, when talking about aims. eg. Refugee, Slavery, Working, Mandates etc...You seem to have got it right to be honest. Don't worry.

    It wasn't that bad! I don't think there'd be room for appeal. You don't seem to have got it wrong anyway!

    Well, thats reassuring to know lol...i mentioned the 14 points briefly and said something about how all the aims were just there to ultimately keep the peace and ensure a war as terrible wouldnt happen again, something like that!

    Yes it was rather general. But I didn't (until now) think that was a bad thing. But now you've got me worrying if I actually answered the question :confused:

    I said it was Wilsons idea then went onto expain its aims, ABCD

    discourage Agression
    engourage Business/trade
    improve Conditions around world
    encourage Disarmament

    and just generally keep peace.

    I think I was on the right track :confused:

    I'd say that was right, though. As someone said before, having looked at a mark scheme afterwards (a past one), even on the big 9/10 mark questions they only require you to make 4/5 points and just elaborate on them to such an extent. I mean, I wittered on so much on that question, but at the same time, I think the only 4 points they were looking for were the ones I shoved in at the last minute, the key aims. As long as you talk about how crap the War was and how everyone agreed it should never happen again, and generally elaborate on the key four points, everyone here should be Ok. And everyone seems to have done that so...

    So did I - but I only did one paragraph. It was 4 marks, and when I had like forty minutes left to do the 6 mark, then the 10 marker, I couldn't be arsed with it. I forget the term "proportional representation", so I described it as: "If a party were to win 23% of the vote, then they would gain exactly 23 seats in the parliament". What do you think, is that ok?! I did explain about the public electing the reichstag and the president (Ebert) but I didn't really go into detail about him appointing the Chancellor, and controlling the Military...I didn't want to waste time!

    If they got 23% of the vote, they'd get more than 23 seats though I think. Hitler managed to get 230 in the July 1932 elections, so there must've been more than 100. Don't worry though, you won't have screwed the paper up as much as I did

    Yeah I know about the Hitler thing. But I literally copied the "23" seats thing straight from our chunky text books. I read it about 20 minutes before the exam, and just lifted it from my memory. I see your point, but it must make some sense if It came straight from the book. Oh well, I don't get it!
