i dunno i didnt think it was that bad. i talked about how the government affected the social and cultural aspects of germany during that time. i made a point about the treatment of homosexuals and varying art movements.
hope it was enough.
part B speer was random though.

yeah i was ecstatic at the foreign policy question, it was kinda expected. nice to be able to get in the intentionalist/structualist arguments as well as heavy detail of nazi ideology and how it was reflected through foreign policy. i though it was interesting the question said 'nazism' rather than 'nazi's' so hopefully that meant it wanted you to look at ideology and then its impact on foreign policy haha *hopes*

hahaha cadylayne i totally agree with you! i had my weimar essay down pat lol. i now they were trying to catch out those who just prepared half the content and not all of it, but i still think its stupid - they were trying to find out what we didn;t now, rather than what we did.

i did foreign policy, the cultural question scared me lol

I was a bit 'omg.' at first, but I got over it. Yay for just having read it!
I wasn't sure (at first) about what I should talk about, and I couldn't remember all the stuff that was in my text book on what flourished during 1923-29 (art and architecture, science, that sort of thing), but then I realised I could talk about all of the youth groups, democratic changes (banning of other parties), women in the society, and being a Jew. w00t!
I AM GOING THROUGH A MAJOR CRISIS RIGHT NOW. OMG.

did your question say 1923-1929??? or 1923-1939??? I've talked to some of my friends and some have said that theirs said 1923-39. But I"m POSITIVE mine said 1923-29!!! Do you think mine had a mis-print or something?? I'm seriously about to hyperventilate!

Some insight, PLEASE!

I was talking to my teacher, and he said it was strange that they had 1923-39 rather 1923-29, as he had predicted that it'd be a Weimar/Nazi split this year :/

But the consensus around here is that it was 1923-1939 cinderella-06 :(

The person that i quoted from, their post said 1923-29. I'm totally freaking out. I was POSITIVE mine said the same. Because I remember that as soon as i read it i thought that they wanted us to talk specifically about the "golden Years" and the time before the great depression. Do you think its possible that their was a misprint in a few papers??? I PRAY YES! I swear, i have never been more positive about something in my life.

If i am completely wrong... BYE UNIVERSITY.

It's funny. Actually, annoying, ironic and frustrating. I've done 5 of my exams already. I've taken all of the papers home... EXCEPT FOR MODERN HISTORY.

This stuff always seems to happen to me. ARRGGH.

I'm probably completely wrong and just seeking some comfort for my pain, although this 'comfort' may be enirely non-existent at this point. I was so desperate I called the hotline. No help there seeing as though the exams already been done!

I imagine the papers would be printed in a production-line manner, making a misprint improbable. But it's possible, I suppose. My paper was certainly 23-39. A kick in the balls you don't forget.

I'm positive it said 23-39 on my sheet because I remember being really pissed they would give us such a gigantic time period. I could have written a whole essay on either 23-9 or 33-39, but that was just too hard so I did the other one.

Even if there was a misprint on your specific exam paper how would they know? They don't collect the exam papers. Bah. :(

AHHHH. I've accepted the fact that I probably read the question all wrong. I've got really bad luck like that. Example: Right before the Modern Exam we were discussing what questions we wanted and what we didn't want. And I said, "I hope they don't ask a question about... say... the Ludendorff Spring Offensive." I just randomly pulled any example outta my ass. Come reading time... It's the first question.

But oh well, life goes on. Hopefully I'll be able to pull at least a 13 for that part? Best case scenario, I tells ya.

I've got the paper in front of me. It was definitely 1939, and in the question I addressed it from Weimar through till Poland... but overall the essay was too generalised.

Modern History's been my worst subject thus far for extended responses.
