    that seems probably quite generic and in sync with the examiners thought patterns seems that they would do something like that

    Smashed this paper in 2014 just thought I would mention that. Just stick to a structure I guess and keep reiterating why your points are stronger than the what the questions premise is

    I have never messed up a question quite like I did in todays paper. Q2 was horrific for me, I wrote successes and failures for the USSR and with no mention of the US

    ah no! hopefully you will still get some marks though how did you structure it ? did you think it was asking about USSR's policies?

    oh gosh no ! in all honesty my teacher has said to me before as long as you've given an answer it doesnt really matter if its one sided so for what its worth if it was structured well you would still get those valuable marks
