Hi,
I'm starting my history exams really soon and I was going through a Cold War past paper and there were questions on the 'Second Balkan War' and the 'Second Moroccan Crisis' - I HAVE NEVER BEEN TAUGHT ABOUT THESE. I don't know if I maybe made a mistake and looked at the wrong past paper (which I don't think I did - I clicked on Edexcel Past Papers --> GCSE --> History A --> January 2011), or if my teacher just hasn't taught us everything properly!
So my question is: what do I need to know if I'm taking Edexcel History option A??
Thanks so much!

P.S: I also don't know how I'm meant to structure the different questions? Any help there would be appreciated!

You were looking at the wrong paper, most definitely. Second Moroccan Crisis was in 1911, and the Second Balkan war was in 1913, so you may have been looking at Origins of WWI, which I believe is a GCSE unit for some boards. Definitely nothing to do with the Cold War!

Thanks so much for responding - yep, it turns out I was looking at a different section (the paper wasn't exclusively about the cold war) My bad!

You may be looking at the wrong units look at the back of the paper and cold war stuff should be there.
