    hi am also doing it unfortunately i don't feel like i have anywhere near enough knowledge! I'm hoping that something will come up about Hitler's leadership style for part B and for part A anything apart from the consolidation of power or the economy i guess!

    yeah thas what it sez in the markscheme. as soon as u question the source u get a level 3. so make sure u do it even if its with one source!!i dun bit rubbish in my p.e exam. i messed up the essays coz me mind went blank!
    in part b just ,make sure u supplement sources with a bit of knowledge not the other way round. and as long as u can sustain ur argument al the way through ie continuing saying hitler was a strong dictator and backing it, thas also level 3. so i spiose its not that bad...
    depends on the bloody question i spose!
    arghhhhhhhh

    Britain and Democracy was an awful paper
    As was Stalinism.

    My A-Level grade disintegrated in front of my very eyes between 9-12 this morning.

    how lucky are you, having to only study a 3 year timeframe on which there is a wealth of material; compared to liberalism it's a damn easy exam

    Excuse me? the German course is between 1933 and 1939, i would hardly quantify that a a "3 year timeframe"...

    That exam was ok, but I somehow forgot that it was 1hr45 and had to rush it to finish in 1hr30. Then sat there for 15 mins trying to add things.
    Did you guys think the sources weren't broad enough for part a? They were all about public resistance and it was very hard to tie in the churches and the army with them.
    And for part b, did you focus on the Unity part or just Strong/Weak dictator?

    focused on unity which was volksgeimeinshaft - coz that was what the question was on on. the strong weak dictator didnt come into it loads. so i dunno how (if people did) focused on that loads.
    fort question a was ok. yeah that was why the sources were closed, so u had to bring in own knowledge. othawise it wudda b answering the queswtion 4 u.
    how did u fink u did?

    erm... the whole bit about Hitler's charisma is what pointed me towards weak/strong dictator.

    how did u fink u did?
    yeah, but you are supposed to sprinkle own knowledge in amogst the source analysis. Our teacher told us the examiners don't like to see long paragraphs of own knowledge.

    I dunno how I did, I doubt I got an A, didn't write enough... To be honest, I'd be happy with an 85/120.
