I did Cold war and international relations:
For the Pact of Steel, I unfortunately mistook it for strengthened and reinforced alliance with Russia instead of Italy. However i managed to explain the reasons why it gave Hitler the confidence to invade and annex Poland, similar to Italy. Will I still get marks for this?

The 8 Marker was easy- Talking about the great depression and the self interest during Anschluss and the Munich conference, you could talk about the sympathetic attitude of Britain, linking it with the great depression

10 marker- Great depession caused isolationism - Chaneg from the involvement from the league and the Aaland islands
Great depression led to the Macnhurian crisis caused aggressive foreign policies- change from the Kellog Briand pact

Probably achieved 21/22 marks on this one

Cold war:
Potsdam left Berlin as a disputed settlement caused the blockade

8 maker: Security issues, negotiation/leverage and the Naval Blockade. Link security and nuclear warfare together, explain how there was a need from an immediate resonse and invasion would cause nuclear warfare so the blockade was the only option

10 Marker: Truman Doctrine antagonised communism, created a threat to the USSR, prevented the spread of communism. Greek Civil war led to Marshall plan
Links with the Berlin Blockade as it increased properity and economic development of Berlin by £1.44 billion investments. This worsened tensions- Broke Yalta agreement, reduced trust, inreased tension through possibilty of war- Airlift is linked causing a bitter taste of defeat, encouraged Stalin for revenge
Links with NATO collective security as a deterrent to prevent aggression from the union

24/25 for this one, I used precise and own factual knowledge 2/3 explained points, and linked

It was fine although the Germany question on the position of the Jews was a question I had not planned for.

The Grade boundaries last year were 90/100. 2014 (82/100) for A*;. So I assume the boundaries may be between 86/88
