    Lol. That is the opposite of what my teacher said today when handing back our mocks.

    I personally don't agree with that either. So I went to ask my other teacher who is amazing at History and she said you can do that and it would be good but don't do it in every paragraph - like maybe twice.

    Yeah of course - not too often or you can never introduce new content. Glad to have cleared it up.

    What areas are you personally predicting will appear?

    Well the specification doesn't really suggest that they could ask a question about the 1918 revolution - but that's just me from what I read. I don't think it will come up.

    Nazi consolidation and another question that will probably be somewhat difficult.

    I asked my teacher whether morale of WW2 could come up on its own and he said it could, although I don't really see it? I can only really see it as a paragraph in efficiency/opposition question...

    Yeah I seems too narrow on its own. Not sure how I could do it without talking of the economy.

    Can someone please help me with these questions?

    To what extent did economic developments in Germany in the period 1900-1914 pose a threat to the power of the elites?


    The Second Reich was characterised by fundamental economic and political divisions by the German elites in the period 1900-1914?

    Just try to sum up the points you're going to be making and say what you think the answer will be. So, like, say which factor you think will be most important.

    We'll see and judging from the amount of work you're doing, I'd be disappointed if you get anything below an A :O
