Revision materials for Edexcel AS History
Unit 1D Option 3 – Russia in Revolution 1881-1924
Unit 1D Option 4 – Stalin’s Russia 1924-53
I present here a selection of notes and material I have prepared to support students (in England) with these AS examinations.
The emphasis is on how to deploy knowledge to answer exam questions – they are NOT a substitute for actually learning the factual content of the course.
For more detailed support I recommend the following commercial revision guides:
Preparing your revision toolkit
1. Make sure you know exactly what content you need to know about. It’s all spelled out here (page 32 and pages 154-6).
2. Make a text file containing all the past exam questions that have ever been set. My revision notes are focused on answering past questions, but irksomely Edexcel’s copyright policy (as I understand it) prohibits me from posting any of them online. But it won’t take you long to do this yourself. All the past papers are here – just take 10 minutes to cut and paste the appropriate questions into your own file to create an essential tool for your preparation.
