Just wondering if I am the only person doing this?! Feels like it! What essays are you guys doing? Well I guess all our topics are different but I am doing Weimar Germany, the essays I have memorised are:
The German Revolution
Weimar's "Golden Years"
Factors In The Rise of Nazism
The Nazi Economic Miracle.

I'd also be interested to see if anybody had any model source answers, its so hard to tell if your writing the correct thing!

I'm doing adv too, but i'm not doing Germany, i'm doing Soviet Russia, i've basically just decided to memorise 4 essays, the advantage of adv is that if a topic isnt in the essays then the chances are it will be in the sources, so the plan is to learn the 4 essays inside out and if need be apply them to the sources.
I dont think im gonna do any source revising since i dont have past papers, just learn some good quotes.

we (a whole 2 of us!) are doing Scotland from the romans to 1000AD. Im good on the romans (my dissertation was did the Romans ever conquer Scotland?) and there almost definately will be a roman essay. Not too great on anything else though, and hardly know anything about the vikings even though it always comes up in part 2.

i just started revising this afternoon cos ive been busy with maths and physics. ill get some essay plans done tomorrow, and make and learn a list of quotes on sunday before work. Hope i get good questions and come out with a C! that's the plan.

I am doing yet another different topic ( Scottish wars of independence ) and looking at what all you guys have done in revision terms worries me as I havn't really started yet. To be fair I have had two exams in the last two days.

It seems the favoured revision technique is essay plans which I wholeheartedly agree with, mainly due to the general lack of imagination of the SQA when it comes to question variation. What's everyone hoping for?

Got 57% in the prelim which wasnt too shabby, i would be happy with a C but with the dissertation taken into account i would hope for a squeezed B.

Hoping i can get around 32/50 for essays, 20/40 for sources and then 33/50 for dissertation, which would be 85/140 which is around 60%
Its hard to predict how well anyone will do in the dissertation, how do the mark it ?

I didn't realise the dissertation was worth that much! University lecturers are known to mark the dissertations so it will probably be marked slightly differently to normal essay's.

i got a B in the prelim but I was very lucky with questions. I'm hoping get a strong B on one essay, a C on the other one, pass the sourcework and hopefully my dissertation is good enough for a B or high C

I should probably be revising now...

Ok back from exam, it wasnt too bad,although the 2 essays i wanted to turn up never turned up, the whole exam was a bit longwinded, essays weren't too bad apart from the last 16 mark comparison question, where i couldnt see any differences.

I have a lovely teacher, but am bored to tears with the subject (Weimar and Nazi Germany).

Ho-hum.
