I know a little early, but I thought I would make it anyway. How far is everyone with revision? My school has just finished Khrushchev. What about you guys?

No sorry, I only use the official AQA book, but my teacher says that is enough.
Still on Khrushchev's reforms? We have hit Brezhnev now...but it is very dull.

Finding Gorbachev the hardest to wrap my head around in terms of memorizing facts and key issues, has anyone found a way to condense the gorbachev period?? I find this exam difficult because there are so few past papers!

What I do is I write essays. So, I either use one from past papers, or one I make up, and I use the book to write a 'perfect essay' and then I give this into my teacher to mark.

With there corrections, I do the essay perfectly again and print it off and just basically read it. I will do this for each of the topics, or major topics, and then just read it. I like revising like that.
Thanks so much !! Will definitely try that, my teacher thinks a nationalities will come up for the breadth question

Could anyone think of good points for this question -What was Khrushchev’s purpose in making the 1956 ‘secret speech’? (this is from the book by the way)

UNIT 1 = Stalin

I would hate Khrushchev, I don't think there is enough to say about him.
I would like Economy under Brezhnev (and onwards) though.

Official AQA textbooks
But also, for historical interpretations and a better understanding, actual books (by Service, McAuley, etc.)
And the internet.

It's between the intended consequences and unintended ones, he wanted to:
-disassociate himself from Stalin and the terror
-further his career
- Remove the Cult of Personality and terror etc

Unintended consequences
- Led to some criticism from colleagues
- The nationalities expecting more freedom? Link with Hungary maybe
- Made the Party & communism look bad

Thats all i can think of on the spot, hope it helps a bit?

They would be nice questions! We all think Stalin is unlikely to come up so much though as it came up last year as a Great Patriotic War question.. :/ Khrushchev would be alright, anything Gorbachev would be awful unless it was the breadth question

Anyone got any exam predictions, i personally think it could be Khrushchev's downfall/destalinisation and Gorbachev's reforms (successes and failures). What are everyones else's ideas?

How did everyone find it?? I thought it was a good paper, the wording on the Gorbachev and breadth questions were a bit weird but generally not too demanding. The one about Khrushchev was perfect imo ..
