I haven't seen an active thread for this unit yet, so...
If anyone can help me for a practise question I'm doing I'd be grateful.
Fall of labour 1931: what was due to events out of Macdonald's control and what was due to his poor leadership?
Any predictions for what may come up?
I've just started revision too, left it a bit late. These were last years questions:
0 1 ‘Lloyd George fell from power in 1922 because he was “the prisoner of theConservatives”.’Assess the validity of this view.[45 marks]
0 2 ‘British governments, in the years 1929 to 1951, were unsuccessful in dealing witheconomic problems.’Assess the validity of this view.[45 marks]
0 3 'The dominance of the Conservatives, in the years 1951 to 1964, was due to divisionswithin the Labour Party.'Assess the validity of this view.[45 marks]
Yeah I sat last years paper. I think they might ask about the Liberals and Labour this year. To be honest they could ask about anything, can't really come to a conclusion of what they might ask until I finish the content. And look at the pattern of the past papers. But they do love synoptic questions
I'm 100% sure there will be a question on economic problems, and how well they were dealt with, either during the 1930s or across the whole period. I also think that there will be a question on both of the Labour governments, either why they fell or how successful they were.
Our teachers told us to focus on the General Strike, Minority Labour Govts, Churchill and 1945 election (with it being the 70th anniversary), comparison questions MacDonald vs Attlee, comparison of Baldwin vs Churchill and Post 1945 Economy such as nationalisation, Labours adaptation on Keynes, 'Super-Mac' etc.
Thank you, you are an absolute gem!
Back of you sperm stain, ******
Does anybody have any idea where I can find good sources in regards to AQA's checklist : Churchill's coalition Government; labour mobilisation and the conduct of 'total war'. Our college has completely missed out all information about the run up and duration of the war! Although probably not as important as some aspects of the course I still would like some background knowledge of this point AQA have put up! Would really appreciate any help.
What do people think is gonna come up on Monday? My teacher says they usually put one on of later dates like 60s as they think it catches people out who rushed through the end of the course. I think it could be on Churchill as a leader as I don't think they've asked on just him before?
Does anybody have any predictions/Mock examples of what a 1945 General Election question may look like? I've looked at "why did labour win/why did the conservatives lose the 1945 general election" But I'm struggling to think of other ones
