For all doing the Treaty of Versailles Topic tomorrow, I have found some past papers which test this topic.
They tend to repeat the sources used, so I would suggest looking over some Treaty of Versailles cartoons/sources and try and analyse provenance, reliability tone etc. because there is a good chance they will come up
tomorrow. Try also looking at a few examiner's reports.
The past papers I am uploading are from 2005, 2011 and 2013. I have also included the mark schemes.
I would suggest looking over them, and possible doing one or two tonight to try and improve exam technique.
Good luck for tomorrow!

If anyone has any questions, just post them here. There's not a lot of time left until the exam!
Do you think they will have questions on the other treaties? They are slightly irrelevant but you never know
i haven't started revision but i can memorise quickly and im aiming for a C can you advise me how many marks i need and i believe i did alright on my paper 1 not too good honestly as it was my fault leaving it to last minute even today!!!
Also, I have heard that this is the easiest paper to get good marks out of Papers 1, 2 and 4, so I would aim for full marks. Look at the mark scheme before and after doing past papers to see what you have to do. You still have a couple of hours to improve your grade!
Hi How do you do 'prove wrong' questions?I don't even know what they asking for and what you have to do to get top marks. The mark scheme is pretty useless Thanks
Hi guys, just one question here... will I be marked down for not stating my option ? Cuz there are two options to be chosen from A (19th) and b(20th) I did all 6 of the B questions but I did not state Option B.... I'm really worried that I'll be marked down !!
Was Germany to be blamed for the first world war.?What are reparations?
