    Hi all
    Anyone have any predictions for the above exam?
    Really struggling to remember the content so being able to narrow it down would be great!
    My teacher said he's fairly sure the CMC won't come up as he said it's been on nearly every paper in some form.
    Also any revision tips that might make it easier?

    It's not too hard, make a timeline of what happens in each year in the 70's and do some practice essays on detente
    Do you have any more predictions? Trying to teach myself this course and it's too much content with no teacher to help out

    I have a complex medical condition that leads to very poor memory, it is very hard :P
    I'm trying to do a timeline but it keeps going tits up haha
    I have no more predictions I'm afraid, I've basically self taught the course too!

    The head of history at my school really thinks that the Helsinki Agreement is going to come up for Topic 5. The line of the AQA spec that this fits in states: "The progress of Détente: SALT 1, 1972; Brezhnev-Nixon Summits; the Helsinki Agreement, 1975". That being said, there's some topics that they've brought up year after year so they're really trying to be unpredictable.

    I have quite a few resources on 'Get Revising' that I've made, mainly revision cards but a couple of quizzes in there too.
    If you search 'International relations 1945-2004' they should come up.
    Working on one for Detente that I should have finished in an hour or so

    Edit: Detente revision cards now up there

    I haven't personally checked this but my friend said 1991-2004 has come up 3 of 4 times, and her teacher said it is VERY unlikely to come up again, and if it does it would most probably be in a breadth question - I'm going to look at the papers tomorrow properly though and I'll make some predictions, I've been correct for all my AS retakes this year

    But Emergence of the Superpowers for examples come up six times and so has breadth questions. I'm not sure whether that makes it more or lesss likely?

    I said I'm not sure, but that's just what a history teacher at my school said so it's worth bearing in mind - obviously best to revise all the content though! Predicting is far too risky especially with History

    1991-2004 will not come up in 2 questions anyway so you will never need to answer a question on it, no?

    Yeah you're right but I still want to be prepared for all three questions just in case the wording on a question throws me or something

    1991-2004 came up in the last three papers but I suggest that you don't take the risk. Look at the stuff because the questions are usually straightforward. AQA could be triple bluffing you! I have just noticed that there hasn't been a question on detente since 2012; no Cuban Missile Crisis since 2010; and no peaceful coexistence since 2012.
