thanks but wikipedia isnt much help. I dont find the module "hard" as in "i dont get this at ALL"

i just can't revise from my notes because they aren't readable and my teacher can't teach...

i was just wondering if there are any revision guides out there that people may have used in the past?

Get the official AQA ones, written by the examiners (possibly the chief examiner?). *I guess this is your exam board*. I did the module in January.

They're all the information you need and they set it all out the way they do in the specification.

Get the Access to History book on Russia. It's really good. It's written for AQA and OCR AS exams and has example questions and everything

I got a B, which was disappointing. AQA History exams this January were mucked up according to my teacher, when I got my exam script back it was all down to exam technique (so watch out for that) and how they'd interpreted the mark scheme. I'm on track for an A this module though.

Smiz,

any chance you can remember what topics were covered in the January exam? Trying to get a feel for what topics have been covered in previous exams.

So far appears to be breaking down into, three areas:

Alexander II Reforms (particularly serf emancipation)

1905 Revolution
Stability from 1905 to 1914

Influence of military failures on build up to 1917 revolutions
October Revolution 1917

Admittedly these are the major points of the course, but wondering if January threw anything different up, like economic development in the period 1881 - 1904??

Hey I did the exam as well, so thought I could chime in.

All I can remember is something about the liberal opposition to Alex II up to 1881 and then about the Political opposition to Nicholas during WWI and then there was a question about Stolypin (but I didn't do that one)

Thanks Sophie. That does sound like a bit of a curve ball!

Are you doing your A2 this June? What Unit 3 are you doing? I'm doing Stability and War: British Monarchy and State, 1714–1770.

Im currently doing A2 Russia and it's Rulers 1855-1964

My teacher sucked too, I have enough notes to work from but I just don't remember anything he taught us

Our exam question, we've been told, are split into 4 different section:
Russian Rulers, differences of domestic policies
The nature of government, everything involving
The impact of dictorial regimes on economy and society, changes
Impact of war and revolutions on government.

Im struggling with getting the info in my head. I officially hate Russia :woo:
