Post what section you do and your thoughts on the paper and sources.

I did Cold War and the USA, found that the questions were among the easiest in years!

I don't really know what my section was called xD it was the First World War, the questions I did for that part were about Technology in war (tanks, aircrafts etc), USAs entry into war and whether Haig achieved his intentions at the Somme.

I really liked the questions, there was definitely no decision on which question I would pick because I had remembered a lot of things about those topics, the other question I wasn't really as confident on.
The sources weren't bad, I ended up making an educated guess for one of them but it turned out to be right anyway

oh and what were last years grade boundaries for an A out of 81? what do you think it'll be this year..
For the first question I wrote basically what you did and for the next one I wrote about upper silesia, Aaland islands, how the league helped soldiers from war, slaves, improved medication and the lives of people in regards to working and living conditions.
Also, for one of the questions towards the end about Haig, I wrote how his war tactics were out of date, and the great loss of lives could be seen as a failure. Although, one of the main aims of the the battle of the somme was to distract the enemy and Haig was successful in doing this, so he did in fact complete his aims.

Ummmm I honestly can't remember anything else SORRY!

EDIT: Oh, and June 2014's grade boundaries were:
67 marks for an A* and 60 for an A - I've just got these from the following link: http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/176543-...-june-2014.pdf

For the importance of America's entry I wrote how the Germans were outnumbered, plus america is a powerful country and so could have brought along more efficient mechanized weapons.

For the source question, I just described the events at occurred during the Agadir crisis of 1911 and explained why the cartoonist drew that.

The boat one I completely messed up and wrote something about the alliance system or something do with the events occurring during the time the source was drawn/published.

Yeah The second moroccan crisis and the Agadir crisis are the same thing I believe...(Basically about the panther)

I'm not sure what we were actually meant to write but I think but you wrote is acceptable and on the right track. So don't worry~
