I think it's just that I am panicking about getting all the dates right and actually talking about the right thing- we have only finished the syllabus last week as we are doing it a year early!

Well that's one exam down, two more to go! Tbh I was quite happy with that, I did sections 4/5/6, but considering the amount of time I spent revising for this one I would have been gutted beyond belief if it had been a car crash!?

I'm doing my nazi revision now actually, it's the exam timings that worry me... :L I didn't mind that 12 marker too much, luckily I practised one incredibly similar only yesterday!?

What about the last 12 mark question - the one on the second cold war from 1979-85?

I put about:
Afghanistan, Evil Empire speech and SDI

That sounds really good- I ended up writing about Afghanistan, Evil Empire Speech and the end of détente (SALT11 and the Olympic Boycotts)- I don't know if this was right!

Yup, same for me! Except I included a paragraph on the olympic boycotts as well. I liked that question!

I think I waffled on a bit on this one but hopefully it wasn't too bad! What did you do for section 4? Thanks!

Section 4 wasn't bad:
1st question on comecon wasn't bad - i put that it was opposite of marshall aid.

2nd question i cant remember but i think i did alright.

The 3rd qustion was quite good in my opinion. I wrote about the atomic bomb being dropped, the secret telegrams and the truman doctrine
