    Knowing Edexcel, if everyone is banking on consolidation of power, then they won't make it that predictable and obvious!
    We just gotta have hope especially with the new specs coming in

    I want to do some practice essays of questions that may possibly come up for the 30 marker does anyone have any ideas? I'm really hoping it's opposition to the nazis or the holocaust.

    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.

    When my teacher gave this question she said what it's really asking you is whether or not the holocaust was planned or unplanned. Is that right or have I been going about it the wrong way?

    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!
    Okay sounds good Thanks!

    You will do brilliantly Have confidence in yourself x

    'Systematic extermination emerged as the Final Solution to the Jewish question as a result of the chaotic nature of the Nazi state.' How far do you agree with this opinion?
    That's a question we did for the holocaust

    It would probably depend on how it's worded? I think if it was "how far do you agree that x was the main factor", then you'd argue different factors, which is what I planned.

    It depends really. The can ask about responsibility for the holocaust (ie: why it started), or why it escalated, which is perhaps more difficult.

    Aww ok yeah you're probably right the questions we got were 'systematic exterminations emerged as the Final Solution to the Jewish Question as a result of the chaotic nature of the Nazi state' these final solution questions are confusing me now x

    Thanks I got a C last year in AS history B in one paper, D in the other

    However, it was a high C close to a B

    In my coursework I got 1 mark off a A so that pushed my grade up so I need to get a B in the exam to get a B overall

    I know it seems like theres literally no time left to get everything covered

    What are you hoping to study at university and which university is it? What grades do you need? x

    Hi, does anyone know how they would answer these questions:

    - the threat of constitutional reform was the biggest threat facing the second reich. How far do you agree with this judegement?
    - moderate reform caused the balance of power to remain unchanged. how far do you agree with this judgement?
    -ww1 heightened rather than narrowed the problems that the second reich faced. How far do you agree with this judgement?

    Thank you!!

    Totally agreed there mate. In a weird way I'd be more annoyed to revise it all for that to come up. You can't win! 😥

    Aww that's good well done you'll easily get a B in the exam maybe higher! I got CDD last year - C in English (B in the coursework and D in the exam), D in Media Studies (C in the exam and E in the coursework) and D in History (B in source based question but flopped the Russia and got a U). I retook the Russia paper so hopefully it levels out to a C overall. I didn't get an offer but was hoping to get into Royal Holloway to study English via clearing but I need ABB and I don't see that happening I think I've got an A in my media studies coursework but I got a D in the history coursework

    Don't lose hope You seem a motivated person who deserves to get a good grade Royal Holloway is an excellent University

    Make sure you carry on applying the same motivation for your subjects

    Thanks x

    The grades you said you were getting in essays were excellent your en route for a top grade You never know you might get a top grade in the resit for Russia Then that would boost your grade for history

    I would talk about the different opposing groups such as communists, youth; white rose group, edelweiss pirates, conservative elites, and maybe some individual attempts to assassinate hitler?
