    Hey! Are any of you guys doing the A2 Cold War paper on monday?! It's the OCR one! its the one on the causes and consequences of the cold war. I'm retaking this and I've lost all my notes from when I did it the first time! :mad: so i was just wondering if anyone had any notes or if maybe we could start a discussion? I'm sure we all want a cold war discussion :-) would be really helpful! Thanks :-) x x x

    Hey, I'm doing The Cold War on monday, but my board is Edexcel and it's a source-based paper on.... the origins/"containment or supremacy"/who prolonged the cold war/detente/the end of the Cold War. I'm actually dreading it

    lol, I wish I did! I'm hoping that the end of the Cold War will come up - stuff about Gorbachev's reforms and Reagan's arms build up. But the questions are too hard 2 predict! What was your jan one on??

    I presume you guys have seen loads of the past papers...
    9/10 its about the Origins and causes of the Cold War because of the higher level of analysis required.
    The liklyhood is some assessment of the causes will be included.
    The most important thing is to use the sources nice and early and really drive the essay using the sources, but i presume u've seen examiners reports?
