    Aww I'm sure you'll be fine! I've never really been good at sources but for some reason I got a B last year and flopped the essay part this year at the beginning I found it hard but it's getting a bit easier! How do you structure your part b answers?

    Aww I hope so fingers crossed! and thats a good thing though, the fact that your finding it easier

    I structure my part b sections:

    Agree paragraph
    with own knowledge

    Disagree paragraph
    with own knowledge

    Making sure I cross reference and integrate if possible all 3 sources x

    I do, although all it does is follow each page in the revision guide and chapter in the textbook? It's not got anything that those books don't. Don't worry! If you just read those, you'll be fine.

    Don't worry! That's the worst thing you can do. Just read through the book and keep making notes. It will stick, just give it time

    Yes you will! yeah I just hope i'll be ok in the exam!
    That's a good structure I first look and see which sources agree/disagree then I highlight the key points in them and link which sources have the same or similar points or if they disagree and then I cross reference . Sorry if that sounds a bit confusing! I do source 1, source 2 and source 3 but I don't use the same point I try to find something different that it says. Sorry this is really confusing! I'll take a picture and try and upload it!

    Do you think they will put two questions on Life in Wartime Germany 1939-45 as Section A? I don't know if they can do that, but I'm sure it may be possible. Struggling with that part of the course as I was ill for most of it! So really if it's certainly not possible I will revise mainly the others.

    It's certainly possible, although unlikely. Don't hedge your bets though

    Ok yall I'm gonna be FINALLY doing some revision. I've covered the rise to power unit and halfway through WW2.

    I feel like I need an actual checklist for the more likely topics for Weimar and 2nd Reich. (Not all topics, but the ones that would be more likely to come up and I should spend more time on. I'll be revising everything though just need myself some guidelines)

    So,
    -revolution
    -Weimar 1919-24 (the political stuff)
    -perhaps golden years?

    That's all I can really think of?

    I hear Final Solution & the Holocaust is likely too. So it's best to add that to your checklist too

    Loads of people have been asking for this - it seems no one has set one up! Feel free to create your own and I'm sure people will reply very quickly.

    Omg I'm struggling with the final solution causes. I have three main paragraphs: Hitler (and antisemitism being a core belief), cumulative radicalisation/chaotic state and then effects of war

    It seems like I don't have enough to say and when I think of a point I don't seem to be able to decide which paragraph it would best go in. Eg failure of Madagascar plan -- would that be war or chaotic state? Neither?

    The Madagascar plan fails due to the war I would say. It relies on the defeat of Britain as it is a British mandate, and also due to the escalation in numbers of Jews under the Reich's control, there is no feasible way to resettle such a large number of people in a tiny area like Madagascar.

    Yep I'm in the same situation with econ and maths haha 😕 yeah m2 is hit and miss. Thing that puts me off history revision is the fact that if its consolidation of power, the exam will be so straightforward
    Knowing Edexcel, if everyone is banking on consolidation of power, then they won't make it that predictable and obvious!
