Hey everyone,

Is anyone else actually doing this topic? There's hardly any threads about this topic on here, so I figured we could do with a thread for this exam season

So, (if anyone's actually studying HIS3G) how's everyone's revision going?

I am doing this exam and I am dreading it! I just can't seem to predict what is going to come up.

Ireland's definitely coming up I think since it didn't last year, and I hope the question's on Land or violence in Ireland.

Personally as well, I'm hoping for a question on post-splendid isolation stuff.

Praying for Splendid isolation, Disrael's second ministry or parliamentary democracy.

The economy can bugger off.

Dream topics for Friday, for me, would be:
• Eastern Crisis
• Land and Ireland
• New Liberalism

I'm not bad with the later course content surrounding WW1, and I've practiced questions about the Eastern Crisis over the year, so fingers crossed

Nightmare would be the Depression- nobody can write 2 1/2 - 3 sides about that without padding it out...

Predictions we got told were:
Ireland (defo coming up as there wasn't anything last year!)
Splendid isolation
Ww1
Liberals 1865-1915

Will be avoiding any questions about the economy- most pointless part of the course

Do you think Ireland will be set across the whole period, or say from 1868-86?
I'd prefer it to be a breadth question, but if it has to be a focus question then I wouldn't mind 1868-86 or maybe 86 onwards.

A question about WWI would be lovely if it's about the events leading up to it, e.g the Balkan Wars and Morocco/Agadir.

Question on Ireland is pretty much nailed on, other 2 could be any but just praying Economy doesn't come up

Hey,

First question, I argued that Gladstone wasn't particularly successful in the short-term in pacifying Ireland, but he did set a precedent for governments to get involved with the Irish.

Second question, I argued that even though the reforms might've been motivated by national efficiency and self-help, they laid down the basis of the welfare state and ensured the ideas of laissez faire government were done away with.

I did question 3 too but most people from my school avoided it. I also did question 1, that was defo my stronger answer.
I think the questions were fair but the time frames were awkward.

Yeah, I think it's a general consensus that the Economy is not a good topic. My only issue with time frames was I didn't really know anything for 1896-1901 for the economy other than the Boer War.
