AQA GCSE History B *Official Thread* 2017
Exam Dates are *5th and 14th June*
The countdown begins...






Hey! I realised we didn't have an official thread for history this year so thought I would make it for everyone. Its not long before our actual GCSE exams and time goes really fast.

  • How is everyone finding History so far?
  • Have you got any good tips for revision?
  • If anyone has got any good resources, please put them in the discussion to help everyone

I am currently doing the following topics for GCSE History:

  • Origins of the First World War
  • Peacemaking and the League of Nations
  • Hitlers Foreign Policy and the Origins of the Second World War
  • The Roaring 20s: USA
  • Hitlers Germany
  • Race Relations in the USA

I'm studying:

-Peacekeeping and the League
-Origins of WWII
-The Early Cold War

-1920's USA
-1930's USA
-US in Vietnam

What I've been doing is making notes and really consolidating knowledge etc, for the origins of WW11 and Cold War I've found it really useful to sum things up into causes, events, results/reactions, facts & figures. I've also made timelines of events for those two units and then drawn lines to link every single event so I know how I could link them in a ten marker.

This was a little harder to do for the peacekeeping unit since that was more treaties and structure compared the the other two which was more a series of events. But, I've consolidated knowledge with notes, highlighted the responses and how it failed in keeping the peace, and wrote out a list of things and linked them all again for ten mark prep.

Best of luckkkk!

10 Mark

Own Knowledge only (no source)
Two Paragraphs with two reasons

10 Marks (No SPaG) - Source
3 Paragraphs Utility and conclusion

I'd look at the spec (http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...45-W-SP-15.PDF) and find the topics you're doing. Put the specification points into a table and research what aspects of it you don't know/are weakest on. I've done that so today (the day before my exam) i'm just looking through to see what it is in need to focus on remembering

Agreements made at the Yalta Conference
My friend said it was specifically what they agreed on about Germany but I wrote about the USSR joining the war against Japan and free elections. The only problem is that no one can remember whether Germany was mentioned in the question

I wrote the same as you! But I mentioned the division of Ger into 4 states too.
I don't think you had to though

it was definitely about germany, i had to change my answer when i realized.

i said germany in 4, berlin in 4, mentioned who owned each sector, and i mentioned the fact that stalin wanted more reparations (i know that last bit might be wrong but thought was worth a shot)
