I'm doing this exam on the Cold War - I'm hoping for an A in it but I've heard it's far harder than any of the other previous exams so I'm slightly worried.

This might sound sutpid but what are the things that could come up in the exam for both sections A & B ?

Section A is going to have a WW1 question, how responsible Germany was for it, right ? (I remember the Fisher vs Ritter debate vaguely) And is the other one a question on the Nazi regime ? Are these the questions that will definately come up ? I'm confused... ??

Section B will be questions on either:
Kaiserreich (1900-1919), Weimar (1919-1928) Rise of Nazi's (1928-45) Life in Wartime Ger. (1939-45) ... or something like that ? not sure if the dates are correct.

I've been off quite a lot this year so I'm unsure on some stuff. Especially section A ? I haven't even started revising yet and I'm this clueless on it. I'm absolutely ****ting it, I probably need an A here too...

What makes you think that it is harder?

For the record, I am doing this one too .

Mostly the section A questions look harder, but maybe it's because I haven't got through all the revision so I'd be useless at writing an own knowledge question at the moment!

Also, I've heard from a few people it's hard - which makes me worry :P I probably should do some more practice exams to feel less anxious about it...

Ah, I wouldn't worry about the Part A questions because all you need to do is revise and you have plenty of time! When you break it down there aren't that many sections:

Start
Thaw
Arms Race
Sino-Soviet Relations
Detente
End

See .

It's the Part B questions which have me worried, probably because the technique is quite specific.

hey
section A will have a knowledge based question on just about anything from 1900-45, whilst section B will be based on one of two controvesies:
1. how popular was hitler in nazi germany?
2. hitler, master of the third reich or weak dictator?

i think thats the outline, hope it helps!

Oh right... I thought the controversy questions were:
1. How responsible was Germany for the outbreak of WW1 ?
2. How popular/efficient was the Nazi regime from 1933-39 ?

Hmm, I'm confused, so I'm guessing I'm wrong then. I think l'll have to go talk to my teacher about it...
