Should be.

I mean, although you do have to have contextual knowledge, I find that this exam is more focused on your ability to compare sources as evidence for something. So a better technique when answering the question is what i'm working towards.

My teacher believes that either the abdication crisis of 1936, or the relationship between Churchill and De Gaulle may show up, because they haven't been asked before. If that helps with anything.

Haha my teacher always says the abdication crisis will pop up and it never does. This might be the year it does though. I'm hoping it's not the de gaulle one. I'm just hoping to get this over and done with.

If they throw a question about De Gaulle, it'd be very difficult for us to answer. There isn't too much to write about the relationship with De Gaulle, and even less sources to compare for evidence for it's relationship. If they do want to incorporate CDG, then they'll elude to him in a wider question about Churchill's relationship with the big three.

As for the abdication crisis, it'd be a fantastic paper to answer. There are many sources, and although the situation doesn't revolve around Churchill too much, it may be easier to answer. It's just difficult to see how they would phrase a potential question.

That's true, anyhow I'm going to fully concentrate on the skills needed and not worry about the content. No matter what is actually on the exam, with good skills we'll both be fine.

Um well I've been doing a lot of past papers. My teacher also sets mini essays that aren't as long as the real thing but use the same skills.

It's Italy from 1896 to 1945. So basically liberal Italy and Mussolini.

Um the knowledge isn't as important as skills. You need to be able to answer the questions using Sources. If you need to improve your knoledge I find that reading your own notes helps the most, instead of just reading a textbook. That's just me though. Different stuff works for different people.
