Hey all!
So I took my GCSE history exam last year (2018), and I am now a history prefect for my school. I've been given the task of delivering revision sessions for the following units: Warfare Through Time, The Reigns of Richard and John, Russia 1917-41, and Superpower Relations and The Cold War.
However, the year 11s and the history teachers are out on a trip until the day of our first session so I'm not really sure which bits they struggle with.
If you are doing any of these units this year (or did them last year) can you let me know some of the areas you found hardest to understand, or some sections you wished you had been taught better/gone over more, so that I can get an idea as to what sort areas I might need to cover.
Many thanks, have a good weekend.

Hey! I do Warfare through Time and the Cold War. I find the Cold War pretty ok, but the question I generally do the worst at is the 'explain the importance of ... for ...'. And the topic area I find the hardest is the last section of the spec- the end of the Cold War (SALT 1 & 2, Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, etc). Whereas Warfare has so much content and is so boring. So maybe if you can find a way to make pikes and the Battle of Falkirk more interesting (that's a very hard task tho). For Warfare the hardest topics for me would be medieval and early modern warfare in general, and comparing different time periods of warfare to each other. I can't really speak for The Reigns of Richard and John and Russia as I don't do them

Thank you very much. Hopefully I can try and make pikes interesting, and a load of my year struggled with SALT 1&2 and Afghanistan, must be quite a confusing topic.
