Are you talking about the Superpower Relations course?

If so, not particularly well. My time is being consumed by Politics.

im doing the Civil War questions. revision is going well, pretty much know all of it, apart from some key statistics etc. most of the knowledge on how to analyse the sources is fine aswell. got an A last year and i need an A this year, and my coursework was 47/50 so im not too worried about the exam

I've been making simple bullet-pointed notes, mindmaps and timelines, stuff like that. Will hopefully finish my notes in the next day or two and move on to tonnes of practice essays.

Oh dear, I am royally ****ed for this exam. I've only started revising today :/ only need 61 UMS for an A though so at least that's reassuring.
Anyone else doing Superpower Relations?

Well, I hope I'm right :/ 85 + 94 for AS and my coursework is a firm A (80), so I think that leaves me with 61 UMS to get in order to hit 320? Correct me if I'm wrong, it sounds too good to be true for me.

I've been so lazy this year though, just don't feel confident AT ALL.

Hey, does anyone have past questions/ mark schemes/ examiners reports for superpower relations?
Edexcel's always a pain with such stuff but I can't access anything for unit 3.

Preparing to fail I hate everything History related after the A2 year. If I ever have to look at the Russian Revolution again, I will scream.
