Average grade boundaries for HIS1H:
Grade C = 42
Grade B = 50
Grade A = 58
Looked at all the grade boundaries for this paper since 2009 and totted them up on me calc. Give or take one or two marks (depends on this years paper) for estimate.
PARA 1 - Social unrest (strikes in Petrograd due to uneployment/conditions/food shortages)
PARA 2 - Political problems (Gov sets up "military zones" which suspends civilian authority = liberal zemstva annoyed = ZEMGOR = Progressive Bloc)
PARA 3 - Military problems (Battle of Tannenburg 300,000 dead = demoralisation = 66,000 desertions = weaknesses in communications and industry)
PARA 4 - Nicholas's Leadership (Rasputin and decision to go on the front line)
CONC - most important = Nicholas's leadership i put
I think i did pretty bad, cos i didn't include statistics and some of my info on the social unrest/worker unrest was general.
