    good luck!! I hope I had some predictions likelihood questions for Russia?
    It sounds likely the PG and Bolsheviks will come up as it was Trotsky and WW2 last year.

    Some might be interested (although I prefer to make my own, rather than buy, personally) in ready made German history, kaiser to fuhrer notes:

    Friend of mine notified me to them. Not for me, but might be of interest.

    The British ones? Such as 1945-2000s?

    Also, what do you think is more likely to come up in the British exam?

    Also, can you link me any notes/essays for the British essay? Your Russian notes are brilliant!

    Thanks

    And what sort of exam structure did you go for when answering Russian questions by the way?

    Thanks, glad you like the Russia notes.

    The British exam is so hard to predict. First of all, are you even doing unit E2?

    This is AS, so I'm not sure what E2 is, but I'm doing Option E.

    Still doesn't matter, though you might wanna repost the link.

    Right, could you link me to any notes based on that as my coverage on British history is a huge one.

    Oh right, there's still some online quizzes that the publisher does for free which could help, I just didn't know if anyone had done them

    Well it's not for me personally, not for everyone, but some people would appreciate it + go for it I'm sure. I find the process of making the notes helps to learn it.

    Economic change - positive:
    • New industries - electrical goods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, dyes
    • Coal and iron production doubled, Germany = 50% of world electrical goods in 1913
    • Growth of economy (4.5% per year)
    • Urbanisation - increased number of technical industries, number enrolling to university doubled
    • Wages rose by 25% 1871-1914
    • Unemployment only above 1% of workforce in 1 year during this period
    • Effective transport infrastructure alleviated problems

    Economic change - negative:
    • Standard of living poor in cities
    • Class divisions increase between Junkers and Working class
    • Population boom meant crowding and homelessness
    • 3 million people members of trade unions in 1913.
    • Working class often in conflict with industrialists over pay and conditions
    • Competition from Canada and the USA squeezed peasants and farmers.

    Political change - positive:
    • Constitutionally, all men over 25 had the vote
    • Federal state structure allowed different regions to impose their own laws for police, education and healthcare
    • Social reforms of 1903 and 1908 to Sickness Insurance and child labour
    • Pressure groups rose in popularity - allowed views of opponents/sections of society to be heard
    • Plurality of interests in the state - centre, SPD, agrarian league all represented different groups
    • Daily Telegraph showed Reichstag able to criticise Kaiser and impose restrictions on his rule

    Political change - negative:
    • Tariff Law of 1902 pleased élite
    • Hottentot Election of 1907 shows defeat of forces for change (centre and SPD) in a brutal imperialist agenda
    • Sammlungspolitik failed to unite liberal and conservative interests
    • Bulow bloc collapsed due to property tax reforms in 1908
    • 1912 rise of SPD meant there was a clash between a left wing reichstag and conservative imperial government
    • Kaiser simply removed Bulow from power once he has lost his confidence
    • Vote of no confidence in Hollweg after Zabern Affair failed to remove him from power
    • Nature of political groups was that they were interest groups and didn't campaign for a better Germany overall
    • Dominance of Prussia in the Bundesrat meant Junkers ruled
    • 3 tier Prussian landtag voting system unfair.
