I can't find a thread for it. I'm doing Russia 1894-1941, Britain 1930-1997 and Rebellion and Disorder under the Tudors.
I'm also screwed for the coursework but that's another story

Are you year 12 or 13?
Have you bought any revision books yet?

You just need to do enough reading, comprehension and then application.
Its the skill at application that helps you deal with the exams, but the reading and note making give you the ammunition to score.

This is going to sound a bit weird but I recognise your name and I think we go to the same school I thought the tudors went quite well, there was a good choice of questions.

Hi what were the Russia questions on?
I did question 2 which was a 10 marker on whether stolypin or witte had a bigger impact on the economy and the 20 marker was about whether stalin's role as general secretary was the most important reason for him becoming leader. I don't know the exact questions for question 1 but it was something to do with the nep and the provisional government.

Ok thanks
I'm in first year doing this course and my teacher has proven to be pretty rubbish. I have my mocks soon and she's never really gone through how to answer exam questions.
What structure do you use for the 10 and 20 markers?

Hey, I'm also studying Russia 1894-1941 + The Late Tudors!

Did you complete the A-Level back in June, or are you in Year 13 at the moment?

I'm self studying so looking for all the help, resources and discussions I can get.

Whereas I’ve been using my coursework as a productive tool while putting off my essays and exam content 😂

Ours is the holocaust and Hitler’s responsibility, we don’t get to pick the question 😬 How about you?

Nearly the same as myself but I'm doing Tudor Foreign Policy and not Disorder under the Tudors. Currently in Year 13 btw.

We got to choose from a list of either the Tudors or Russia, I went with "to what extent was the October revolution of 1917 a Bolshevik coup?"
Pretty good because this is such a polarising topic.

I really like the system of allowing you to choose from the topics what you study what you’ll research (id have gone with something from Russian history also!) - Although we were told explicitly that the topic for our coursework couldn’t be one that overlapped with the set topics for our exams, which is strange as it’s the same exam board 🤔
