    I think it's P12 and P22.

    P12 is poems by Gillian Clarke and some stories by different authors. Each being 45 minutes... is this the same amount of time you guys have?

    P22 is inspector calls and unseen poem or prose (you get to choose)

    Inspector calls being 45 minutes and the unseen being 1 hour and 15 minutes.

    No time at all.

    Well, then you gotta get an an overall 55, to get a borderline A. i'd say 60 would be a safe A. As the weighting for paper 12 and 22 are x1 each, and paper 12 and paper 22 each has 50 raw marks each, I'd suggest that you aim to score 30/50 for each paper to get a safe A (provided they do not raise the boundary too much) For March, June and November 2016, you get have to get 55/100 get an A.

    Goodluck !

    Same! I'm worried it's going to be an extremely vague question, they seem to be favouring those recently [like the horrific and just rather cruel "to what extent was communism the most important reason for Stalin to introduce collectivisation?"].

    hey!

    any predictions for history paper 4 German depth study?
    I reckon DS1 and 3 for the German depth study so Weimar and Nazi Germany. In regards to specific questions, it's probably a recovery question for Weimar and a Hitler Control or Benefit question for DS3
