Compared to Norman Conquest, this course is rather concise and straight forward. You can almost expect what's going to happen. I know it's a bit late, but heres my revision mind maps / revision sheets that I and a friend created. They may not be any help tonight, but the exam is in the afternoon so you can have a flick through tomorrow morning. (If you don't have a English Language exam, like me).

Best of luck. A small tip, but yourself in the shoes of the people you are being asked about. Nicholas II and WW1 - how would you feel if you were unexperienced, but leading a National Army? Or Alexander II - how would you react if your father was assasinated. But, whatever you do - do not use first person.
Part_2_-_Economic_Change.docx (Section 2)
Part_3_-_Russia_In_Revolution.docx (Section 3)
Part_4_-_The_Tsarist_Regime.docx (Section 4)
Part_5_-_Russia_In_Revolution.docx (Section 5)

I didn't do one for Section One as it is quite easy and straight forward. 1885 - 1881

Do you mean Civil Rights as in you're doing Unit 2P (Civil Rights in America)
Because that's the exam I'm doing and I haven't seen anyone talking about that one yet

I thought it was pretty ridiculous to ask a 12 marker on those two but I had to do them because the 24 marker for the middle question was really difficult because there wasnt much to say!

Exactly!

The last 24 marker about the revolution was hard

Think I wrote about the October one by accident... Ops

Yeah it was a really hard question, but I think I managed to say a bit on it, I spoke about how nicholas became commander in chief of the army so that was a weakness which led to revolution and I said about how Nicholas ignored the progressive block and shut down the duma which im not sure I was right to mention...

I found the paper generally OK. The question on Rasputin was strange - especially when you don't really study him too much.

I stated about his "Affair" with the Russian Tsaria,

Nobles belived that Rasputin's magical powers could over throw the Tsar - mkaing Rasputin Tsar / similar.

His general looks and mysterious feel. It wasn't expected, and wasn't ordinary.

I said about his "affair", and that people were suspicious as Aleksandra was German >.>
That Rasputin seemed to have influence over Nicholas (dismissing ministers)
& That Nicholas hid behind him .... :L
Can't remember what else I put...

I put SRs murdered him though (which is obviously wrong :/)

Could Rasputin have counted a reason behind Nicholas II's downfall, (06 - 24 Marks) as in it being an alternative to Nicholas himself being responsible

I put this as a reason in my 24 marker, I'm glad someone else did too.

I did the first and last questions...the 12 markers were EVIL! How anyone could write enough information about the last 12 marker is insane. I used up a lot of time on the first 24 marker and so ended up doing a 2x 24 1x 12 and an intro to the Rasputin one!
