Title sums it up

Exam Dates if I'm right are (correct me if I'm wrong)

19th of May 2020- Russia (and other equivalent thematic studies)

3rd of June 2020- Britain (and other equivalent British history topics)

10th of June 2020- French Revolution (and other equivalent topics)

I am doing

Russia 1855-1964
Britain 1930-1997
France 1775-1815

My coursework is on assessing the reasons for the USSR's collapse and should hopefully have it done for Feb time

I'm doing the same Britain and France papers as you, but the 'Challenge of German Nationalism' instead of Russia for my case study. Got my sources mock in 2 days... how're people revising for those questions? I always feel like I'm not doing enough even when I'm fairly confience, just because there are so many people and events to know about, but you don't have to know everything about them. I hope that makes sense!

For me, I have an inherent benefit bc I'm quite familiar with a lot of modern history across many places so knowledge isn't as much as a problem.

Britain is the most easy for me without no prior knowledge. Russia is fine for the most part except social and economic policy but France can confuse me with all the damn constitutions they have and some parts of the directory too

For the complex french stuff, I made a timeline listing the general events and a brief summary what happens. If you want that then I can help by sending Pics.

I have a source mock apparently tomorrow aha- I've been told to simply study the debates and know your facts inside out about the topics listed (e.g Mine is on Alex II's reforms so basically know the dude as if he was in your immediate family)

Just to let you both know you both created a thread on this so I've merged them together

Hope that's okay!

Yeah, the consitutions aren't ideal, I've found that it's easier to learn it year by year, in sections. E.g. pre rev, 1789, National Assembly, Constitutional monarchy... Britain isn't hard to understand, but for me it's the least interesting so I find it harder to revise! Germany, I tend to make timelines by theme such as military, etc. This means that I basically have essay plans, whcih is nice. I think your Russia question might be your interpretation question, though - the source question is Churchill. But how was it, anyway?

My bad, I use the source and interpretation terms interchangeably

It wasn't actually an exam however. We got given an exemplar and had to write our own response. We had to do a 25 marker under very liberal time conditions so that was our 'pre-mock'

Not too shabby- went well enough.

The issue for me is that my teacher tends to spend a whole lesson planning. I'd prefer if we did it under timed conditions though I am practising that on my own.

If you're interested, then we could share resources lest it benefit us both

That would be great, thanks! On getrevising I made a timeline of the whole French rev, if that would be useful. I've since spotted a couple of errors but I can show you where those are.

How do you all revise for Germany from democracy to dictatorship? My school is not great and I really wanna prove people wrong and try do good especially in that paper. Any revision resources? I find it hard to evaluate yet I can recall facts. Just don’t have any arguments despite researching a lot

Has anyone got any revision resources to share? I've got mocks coming up and I don't really know where to find resources other than the text books and revision guides.

Thanks.
