I went in so prepared and confident, and basically left the hall in tears.
The four marker was okay, i think i did decently on that.
Unemployment was a shock, that's for sure.
We never fully covered it in class, just touched upon it. I mentioned the bullet points, and then tried to include the 'standard of better living' or whatever it is but i messed up.
and goodness me the sources, who's idea was it to use such a small timeframe.
There wasnt much to mention other than the crisis year of 1923 (ruhr and hyperinflation), the treaty of versailles, and the kapp + munich putsch (there was the Spartascist uprising but i forgot about that.
I basically waffled for all of section B, because honestly i just couldn't do it.
I have the knowledge, and i could have applied it, but i just couldn't??
It was basically the same thing for them all, and i mentioned and reoeated everything from the previous questions becuase there was nothing else to really add...
Also; for the differences, i'm not very sure how i was supposed to actually answer that? please help?
There goes my history grade, i was predicted an 8/9 (not to show off or anything, because i'm really not trying to) and now i'll be lucky to get a 5.
If anyone else seriously struggled, please share it below.
As well as perhaps for those who didn't, maybe share the answers that you gave, so i can see whati could have done?
For the 4 marker, I said the difference was that view 1 made it seem like the people of Germany were making it difficult for the Republic to run the country while in view 2, it was the Republic's own actions that made it hard for them.
Not worry, I also found it hard, especially when we have practised these questions once in class. Still don't know the structure for that last question.
I thought it was calm tbh but alot of waffling
For the 4 marker I said that the differences between the two sources was that Source B focused more on strong oppositions being the main challenge that the weimar republic faced, whereas Source C focused more on hyperinflation being the main challenge.
You probably did much better than you thought! even if you were waffling the examiners still mark what’s on the page
I honestly wouldn't worry! After my December Mock I spent the evening crying - I just felt like I had failed my teacher and myself in a subject I thought I was good at. I ended up coming out with 85%! Honestly, we aren't good judges of how we've done. I felt that today's paper could definitely have been better, and don't worry because this is just one paper out of 3! You have done 2 others and so as long as those went okay, you'll be fine. Good luck
what do u guys think grade boundaries i reakon;
Thankfully I anticipated that there would be a lot of Weimar content because next to none came up in the mock,and i fortunately remembered work schemes for the unemployment question.On the other hand,I partially bombed paper 2 and could barely answer the 16 marker for Elizabeth (only one extra point that was a VERY short paragraph).
What was your other non bullet pointed reason for the drop in unemployment??
I talked about invisible unemployment of women and Jews do you think that will count?
