Hi!

Don't think anyone else has made this yet, so I'm gonna go ahead and make a forum for the AQA A Level Germany course from 1871-1991. I'm starting in September and thus haven't gotten far through it with notes yet, so I'll post all the relevant links i've used so far below. I got a 9 in History and hope everyone wants to share their resources so that we can all do well at A Level.

PLEASE add your own resources as well, including revision notes, past papers, Wikipedia, useful stuff you found online, etc, etc.

Hi, thanks for creating this forum so we can share resources. I was just wondering how are you doing your notes? So far I´ve been using the two textbooks we´ve been given (the Oxford and the Hodder) one you linked.

Do you remember how much you had to know about the 1918ish period, so essentially the transition from the Kaiser to the Weimar republic?

Also, what is the most effective way to revise and where do I find practice questions?

As for notes, I must admit that I haven't been typing up my class notes (of which there are many) into digital resources although lately I've been using Google Docs (free and amazing) to create a statistics document (to be turned into a Quizlet), then I've got my practice essays on hand, and I've also created a document where all the major and minor issues are listed and linked to their respective articles. I'm quite statiscially minded so I believe this should suffice, though I will eventually have to start typing up my notes.

My teacher gives us a printout of the 5 different textbooks available (even ones from the old spec) and she's compiled them into booklets for each module. It can't really be uploaded here, and I'm pretty sure it breaks copyright laws, though I feel like she found it on a teacher resource website so if you're that determined you might be able to find it yourself. There's a chance she got it from her private Facebook teacher group, though.

Now, I created this forum believing I'd be studying Germany when I started in Y12 but actually my college went with Britain first, though I'll be starting next week. While you're here, can I just ask what your strategy has been regarding history? How are you doing notes, reading, practice exams etc?

I know it's been 3 months but I'm just wondering if you had problems with timing? So far I've been doing practice essays and generally been getting As and A* in them however this is with unlimited time and a generous word count. I'm starting to practice speed writing because that is how big a problem the word count feels (I normally write 800 words in 45m but I'd need at least 1200 to mention everything I need to make my argument). I know that it's all about selecting your evidence but everytime I've cut things away to shorten the essay it just ends up at a C or B grade, which is why speed writing feels so important to me. How did you find it?
