I'm sure it'll all come to you when you're actually sitting the paper.
My problem is that i struggle with remembering the dates of specific events, like i know what happens after what but i don't know when for example the night of the long knives took place

Nope I did it last year and did fairly well. I did the A-level equivalent a few weeks ago as well - so fire away with any questions!

oh okay Do you have any tips for structure and exam techniques?

And could you also help me with the question " Was agreeing to the Dawes Plan the most important action taken by Stresemann in bringing stability in the years 1924-29?"

Basically just take your time, plan all of your answers (except for the 4 marker) and underline key words!

When doing the 16 marker -> 2 points for, 1 point against, or if you're looking at different factors do a point for each factor. Keep them nice and chunky!

For your specific question...

Think what is the question asking you, what other things did Stresemann do? I would split in into Dawes Plan, foreign policy and then economic policy.

For each point you need to do... PEE and then another EE to back up your point! One example won't be enough to gain top marks.

Don't worry too much about stats. All you need to show is a general change, or manipulate the data. For example, unemployment almost doubled between 1930 and 1932!

Thank you, so with the 16 marker should i do it almost like an argument and give different factors?

So do we reckon it's going to be: social reforms, women's suffrage or the homefront? Or am I doing something different than you chaps?

You won't impress them by regurgitating stats I can assure you, anyone can remember a few statistics! There's nothing wrong with learning them and using them, however you'll be more efficient with your time if you just understand trends and can give manipulated bits of evidence. It sometimes makes your argument flow better, as giving stats can make sentences become clunky.

Use them if you have them! Just don't religiously learn them good luck with tomorrow I'm sure you'll ace it if you're wanting an A*!

Depends on the question.

If it's a question like "was x the main factor in causing y" you should decide if it was the main factor, if so. Put it as your main point and then come up with two different factors. A key mistake to make is to have two points discussing one factor - DON'T DO THIS!! You're likely to move down to a lower band/level automatically because you're not showing a broad argument.

However if it's a question like "how similar was x between WG and NG" you should give two points for your view, and one point against!
