    Hi,

    I will be sitting the AQA History Option B - Paper 2 on 10th June 2015. The topics that I will be studying include: America in the 1920s, Hitler's Germany and Vietnam,

    Does anybody have any predictions for ANY of these topics? Any revision tips or any specific areas of the topics which you would focus on?

    Also, Paper 1 is on Monday 1st June, and I am doing: Origins of World War One, peacemaking and the League of Nations and Origins of World War Two. If you have any predictions for these then that would be great too!

    Finally, if you have ANY revision sources for the above topics then please would you be able to send them to me? May it be images of revision, interactive quizzes/ games or documents.

    Also, you can PM me if you like.

    Thank you.

    I'm sitting this paper too. I'm doing America in the 20s, great depression and Vietnam. I know it's pretty late now but I have revision cards if you want them. Also how did you find unit 1?

    Please can I have the revision cards? I found unit one good. However, paper two is my weakest one. Do we analyse any of the sources in paper two? Do you have any predictions for unit 2?

    There will be one source question which is on America in the 1920s and that's it. The other two topics will consist of an 8 Mark question and a 12 Mark question.

    Prediction for Hitler's Germany would be life during the second word war i.e rations... as this was only brought onto the specification in time for our exam JUST LIKE the source question on the hungarian rising on the cold war on Paper 1 which came up and it was new.

    I'm literally just doing that lool.
    Labour shortages due to people joining armed forces - this was partly solved by Nazis conscripting workers from countries they had taken over.
    Sea blockades meant that they could no longer trade or have import - meant food production was a priority - involved more workers.
    Germany got food and materials from the USSR until they invaded in 1941, then they got materials such as metals from places like Romania.
    British and USA bombed the cities which affected to fuel supplies, industrial centres and railways. In 1934, Nazis declared total war - all industrial factories focused on producing arms for war - lead to food shortages. By late 1944, 200,000 men were tied up repairing things such as electricity, oil and gas supplies. Tank production fell by 35% by 1945.
    Industrial output was 1/3 of what it had been in 1938
    Cities were in a terrible state - many homeless
    German economy was in ruins - cities and Berlin needed to be rebuilt completely as Russians, Americans, British and French took control of parts of Berlin.
    Half the sales carried out by bartering by 1947.
    Hope this helps

    1. German economy runs out of money
    2. Prints more money to pay workers and to pay off its' debts
    3. People don't trust the money and so spend it quickly
    4.) Shops and suppliers put up prices, meaning that people have to be paid more, and so the government needs even more money and so on, in a vicious cycle.
    5.) Prices rise at an INCREDIBLE RATE. In 1919 a stamp cost 1 mark. In 1923 it costs 22,000,000!

    Wow your topics are ace. Wish I did this. We're learning about stuff that is stale.

    Germany was a good place to live for most Germans during Hitler's reign. Do you agree with this statement?

    I'm doing the 20s, Depression and the Arab Conflict.

    The Depression question will probably be regarding the effectiveness of the New Deal. I very much doubt that it'll be a question pertaining to Roosevelt's political prowess, however I could well be proven wrong. The Twenties are a bit of a mixed bag. I'd assume that the largest question won't be about racism or organised crime, as they have been the main topics of the last two source questions. Maybe it'll be something to do with the stock exchange or consumerism. If I were you, I'd revise absolutely everything on the specification to make sure I have all of my bases covered.
