    No worries! Do you have any predictions?

    Well going by what you guys are gunning for, i have put nazi consolidation of fairly high importance
    But also the final solution because of its five year absence and maybe a weimar question??

    Weimar came up last year which makes me doubt it more than the others. Nazi consolidation and Kaiserreich/German revolution is my personal prediction.

    Holocaust is feasible I guess. I just would have thought that they would ask a new question as opposed to churning out an old one.

    Guys I'm gonna embark on an attempt to devise 20 plans for 20 essays - these plans should cover all the possible content you need to know.

    However, it will be handwritten so it will take centuries to upload - let me know if you're interested otherwise I don't want to waste time uploading :P

    Can't remember whether I did. I think so.

    Haha I know it's frustrating. I'll be much more confident on a Nazi consolidation question than a Holocaust or Nazi one.

    If Weimar came up I think it's more likely to be the 1919-24 period. Although we never know. When I sat my AS exams I basically had the same questions as others had the year before haha

    Yeah. Last year was a thematic 1919-29 type question.

    I hope it's more of an "early problems" question if Weimar does come up.

    The political instability/how far was Weimar threatened in the early years would be a lovely question although it has come up and people did well in it I think

    They've never done a question on the Golden years/ Stresemann years, although they have obviously covered it under democratic experiment before but never that specific chunk of time. That would be a nice one because you can talk about economic development, social progress and political stability, but the fact that they had Weimar last year makes me doubt it
    Although if you look at the past papers, they have always repeated a unit every year, so it could be Weimar or WWII again!

    Ok so this is probably a long winded method but it worked wonders for me last year..

    Each sorta topic, i have my plan written out on paper, from intro to every paragraph to conclusion. And i write it out over and over till the layout is kinda stuck in my brain.

    Its a great way for me because as i write i see where everything is in each paragraph by picturing the bit of paper in my head.

    Admittedly, its slightly harder to do for history because there are so many areas that can come and questions can vary but because all three of my subjects are essay questions its how i roll.. Haha

    Hbu?

    Are you memorising historians? I'd just remember key arguments and key figures/events or how they demonstrate those theories. You don't get marks for ticking off historians' names in the exam or contrasting an argument in a source with a completely different one not mentioned in other sources.

    What do Ferguson, Ritter and Strandmann argue anyway?



    This made me laugh :L How's your prep going?

    Hhaha, he said "lads" though so...

    Yeah its going okayish... Im not getting high marks in the essays which is depressing me as I am revising

    Since I'm writing it out on paper, you'll have to try and bear with my writing - it's certainly not the best!

    Apologies in advance.

    I've done one plan and it's 2 and a half sides.

    19 left to go!
