    I'm doing Alt L: USA 1877-1980 too - it would appear to be quite a popular module.

    Any bets on which Presidents will come up?

    Also is anyone doing Britain 1918-1951? Isn't it so annyoing the way there are about seven topics and you have to do the compulsory one...then have a choice of six. Kind of makes you wonder why you're revising.

    argh. i'm doing Spain: Ferdinand and Isabella, Charles I (V) and Philip II; The Dutch Revolt; and Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I. i'm in a complete and utter panic about it since i need an A in all 3 subjects to get into my first choice... :mad: i've got to cover about 3 quarters of this still, between now and monday, and find time to look at my synoptic english paper for tuesday...really worried.

    does anyone have any idea what the history questions were last year, cos that often gives an indication of what will and won't come up this year...

    You're doing nearly the same topics as me! You can look at past papers on the aqa website, and see what all the questions are, but question-spotting never seems to work for history.

    I'm doing the same syllabus too, and I can't revise until the weekend coz I've got psych tomorrow - does anyone have any tips or hints or strategies or anything? I've completely given up on the Netherlands I'm just hoping there's a question on the first revolt coz thats all I know!
    Spain is ok I think, are there any more topics except the church, the moriscos, the jews, the inquisition and the papacy?

    I do Britain but not the 1918-51 module and my papers structured in the same way. It's really annoying knowing that you will only use a tiny proportion of what you've learned!

    I'm doing exactly them too.

    For the europe paper, the document question will be about Spain, it's USUALLY a question based on the 100 year period, about royal control of the church, OR unity under Ferdinand and Isabella. The second one usually has: Reasons for the revolt starting (NL) and why Charles V failed.

    For the British side, it's usually Henrician reformation for the document, SOMETIMES it's Mid-Tudor crisis. The second part also has something to do with the use of parliament, factionalism, henrician reformation (if it didn't come up on the document) and other things that I can't remember and won't bother to learn. I gotta learn it all by monday.

    Isn't it annoying how we're all doing slightly different courses, and are thus unable to contextually help each other? Is there anyone else here doing the Germany/Russia/USSR 1820-1939 Module?

    I'm doing a strange one for European that involves the study of both Germany and Russia/USSR between 1830 and 1939, comparing them over the whole period, and lots of Stalin/Hitler questions.
    I'm doing that one, it sucks. I hate all the Russian stuff, it's so dull...

    I'm also doing Britain, 1918-51 which I love

    option L questions: If people can may7be post up their answers to these questions it would be nice to see what others thought about them.

    To what extent can President JFK's policies for education and economic affaris be regarded as a faliure in the years 1961-63?

    "The political changes under Johnson were more important than the social and economic ones" How far do you agree with this view?

    To what extent did LBJ's social and economic policies create a great society?

    "Nixons resignation as President in August 1974 was due to both economic and political failings during his presidency" Assess the validity of this statement

    How far did the role of federal government in social and economic affairs change during the Presidencies of Nixon and Reagan?

    " The domestic policies of Ford and Carter were unsucessful due to their lack of political skill" How far do you agree with this statement?

    "Reagan's success as President in domestic affairs was due more to his economic and social policies rather than to his skill as a politician" Assess the validity of this statement

    Assess the success of USA government policies in Health and inner city regeneration in the years 1961-1989

    How far did the role of Federal government change with regards to social and economic policy in the years 1961-1989?

    How dar did the social, economic, political and cultural position of African Americans change within America between 1877 and 1980?

    I'm doing the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I; and also Nazi Germany; 1933 onwards. I'm quite confident about it, but there's a part about 100 years of German Economics which we rushed towards the end of the year and I haven't looked at it yet.

    I want to die rather than do these exams tomorrow:

    Option C: Monarchy in the age of Enlightenment, Catherine the Great 1762 - 1796 & France with about a billion kings/regents 1689 - 1789.
    Option O: Monarchy Challenged, Restrained, Rejected, Restored. Charles I & Oliver Cromwell.

    Then on Friday I have Oliver Cromwell: Hero or Villian?

    I'm quite worried that I seem to be the only one with these options; damn my school.
