Hi. I've chosen the following topics:

SECTION A - GERMANY AND APPEASEMENT; A9, A3
SECTION B - INDIA; B5
SECTION C - MIDDLE EAST; C5.

What about you? Which themes have you chosen to do? And do you know where I can find some good notes for my Indian depth study. Do you think the exam will be hard or easy? There's seem so little time for the exam; how do we keep on with the time, especially, for section B (15 mark question)? And what's the technique of answering that 15 mark question of section B and section C?

Thank you; however, could you please tell me how to calm my nerves during the history exam, for I usually panic during the exam; furthermore, my situation is bad: my schedule for history revision is going chaotic, and I have so much to read and so little time - what do I do?

My revision schedule for History doesn't start till tomorrow though (I've still got to cover Biology and Chemistry syllabuses TODAY! and a little bit of tomorrow) the most important thing to remember is that you HAVE to stay focused as it's absolutely paramount and try to remain calm in the exam, otherwise you'll start to hyperventilate and your mind will automatically go blank. You wouldn't want that, would you? Pull all nighters if necessary, read carefully and thoroughly through yout textbook and make concise notes where appriopriate. GOOD LUCK AND STAY POSITIVE!


Also, for my IGCSE History exam I'm doing Russian Revolution, Stallin, Russia from Autrocracy to Dictatorship and International Relations So much to do! Aaaargh! xD

What if you're without a credit card, and you can't pay for the book? What if you can't afford the book? Are there free alternatives?

Well it seems like you're in a quite tough situation right now. Why don't you ask your parents to buy you this book? Explain to them that you really need it as your history exam is looming and that you wanna do well in it. Because the truth of a matter is, that you won't be able to get a decent grade if you don't buy this book and properly revise from it. And by decent grade I mean grades A*-B.

I don't think there are any free alternatives on the internet, though. But yeah, I urge you to ask your parents profusely. You're gonna be fine Good luck!

Hey guys,
Do you mean the paper 4 history exam? Because I'm in Czech Republic and I took paper 1 last Thursday and am taking paper 2 this Friday.
I think i'm doing a slightly different exam than you? But I think they're all more or less the same.
Anyway does anybody have any tips for source based questions? thanks
btw I did my exam on WW1 peace treaties and Interwar relations, Cold War, and Germany 1918-45.

How are you guys going to deal with time during the exam for each section - are you going to spend 1 minute to write the times you will finish each section? Timing is my major concern with history... :/

I've chosen, Germany, Cold War, WW1, Changing Nature of Warfare

You're scared of running out of time?! Don't be silly, we'll have 2 hours and 30 minutes! That's a plenty of time! I'm sure you'll have finished all of your questions before 2 hours have passed! GOOD LUCK!

It is a lot of time but...I tend to write far too much in essays and run out of time! Which I shall try to avoid. Good luck too
