    Think it went okay! We did a different paper from everyone else (P13, I think) I think, because I got Versailles and League, and no questions on Lytton (which is good because I would have blanked). Got a question on Sevres, which I had to guess a bit because I could only come up with one real point and I forgot why they had to renegotiate the treaty, but overall it went pretty well!

    Yehp! I have it on Friday as well, on the Gulf War. Really hoping they're not too mean, because sources are not my strong point. (Our Paper 4 however, is fine by me!)

    Oh great I'm doing it on the Cold War too, hopefully I can do well on it and it can bump me overall grade up, just remember to revise a little be of context and know how to answer each type of question, I'm sure it will go fine though
