Did anyone else do this? I thought the questions were actually quite decent, for once, though I've fluffed the 24 mark essay question.

How did it go for you?

Hi I am sitting this exam next week and I was hoping you might remember what the questions were for your exam?? It would be really helpful to know, especially the topic of the sources.

Yeah I do, seriously worried though as I know hardly anything and really struggle to answer the questions. Do you have any examples of high scoring essays, as we weren't given any by our teacher.

Okay; so it was - Social Policy source question, Economic Policy and Foreign Policy essay questions. So I would particularly focus on the Consolidation of Power & Downfall topics then me thinks...

Any advice on structuring the source questions? Or all of the paper if you prefer? :P

Oh and of course good luck to everyone taking it tomorrow!! History sure is tough... glad it's got low grade boundaries (50-52 out of 72 usually) attached to it or else I'd die a little inside. :L

'Fraid not - we only got given low scoring essays and told what not to do :/ We have been told that for 12 mark questions its

Point one
Point two
Point three
Links and conclusion

Whilst for 24 its

Intro
Point for
Point for
Point for
Point against
Conclusion

... I'm not sure what everybody else has been told structure-wise

The exam board loves consolidation of power (because there's so much to say) and it didn't come up last year - I'd really look at this. Also, WWII seems to have been missing for a while. Take these with a pinch of salt though - they can put on whatever they like and there is no way to predict!

how did everyone find that?
i found the source questions so hard, whenever the questions about the economy its always about its success, but they talked about industrialising and i did not revise that at all, its only a tiny bit in the text book about that

Yeah, my class found the source question iffy - Source A + B barely related to the 24 marker :/ I wrote about economy as a whole for most of it - there just wasn't enough on industry.

Did most people do Consolidation of Power or Salo Republic? x

^^ I too found the 24 mark source iffy .. I talked about things like the corporate statement iri and imi .. Autarky etc etc

And also brought in things like north south divide .. Electrification of rural parts of Italy etc .. Other stuff aswell but I went into some haze so no idea what I wrote for half of the source :L

The 12 and 24 mark question on consolidation, was pretty easy

I lost my structure a bit for the 24 mark .. Still made a valid argument though..
Use of terror vs compromise, genuine popularity .. Propoganda, other factors

Yeh i know, using source a and b made me go on a tangent about living conditions, but i just used it as an example of success/not success because this is also important when assessing like how industrialised it was idk though it was really weird
yeh me too i talked about other parts of the economy too
oh well

i did consolidation, but the thing about consolidation was i couldn't think of much to say about why terror was important....cos i swear it was't from 1924 onwards anyway as its what nearly toppled him from power in the matteoti affair...

what did you do?
