Hey is anybody else doing this exam tomorrow? How you feeling about it?

I personally feel a hell of a lot better about this exam than I did about the Cold War exam last week

Really? I've hardly seen anybody that does History A exams. Our exams seem similar though, but yours seems to cover more years. This one is Germany 1919 - 1939.

Good luck with the exam. Sure you'll do fine

Thanks!
Surgery? Your paper seems really interesting! I'm doing a source paper based on the USA civil rights movement ( Martin Luther King, Malcolm X etc ) really excited about this paper since source questions are pretty easy

I felt more than relief after that cold war exam! Never again will I have to explain the features of détente and all that other bull

I always struggle with how to structure my answers any tips? All I know is that for the 4 mark question you should include a quote??

4 marks, is two inferences with supporting detail (evidence to back up your point). Remember to infer instead of summarising, just stating the obvious won't get you any marks. Quotes yes, so that the examiner knows how you have found this inference.
e.g-
The source shows that _________. This can be inferred from "_____". Two of those, and you're all set. (Three if you have any extra time/feel one of your points might be weak or similar to the first).

I'm doing this exam tomorrow aswell! Hoping it's easier than Unit 1, I did International Rivalry, The Peace Settlement and How did the Cold War develop, and found the last 2 quite hard. I do find that Key Topic 1 of Unit 2 is mostly just Unit 1 repeated though Has anyone got any ideas what the big mark questions could be on??

Praying the sixteen mark question is about the weimar republic or how Hitler consolidated his power.

What do you think?

Ye, I hope its about the Weimar too. I have a feeling that it will be about National Socialism though.

I would have liked a question on Weimar Republic but in Unit 1 there was a c question about the events of 1923-29 so I don't know if this will be repeated. Apart from this I'm not quite sure, only up to Key Topic 2 in my re-reading of notes!
