Paper One?

So, our teacher didn't really say what time period the first history paper covers.

This is what I was told & am pretty sure its wrong looking at past papers:

1) USSR under Stalin

2) China (not doing Asia as regional option, so would never choose it regardless)

3) Cold War

Is that it? Or, am I totally off base?

That sounds about right to me. To be more specific, the first prescribed subject (the USSR under Stalin) deals with 1924 to 1941, and the Cold War covers 1960 to 1979. And Asia...no clue. Our class isn't studying it, either. Heh.

Have a look at the syllabus! I think you can download it here or just search with google.

Straight from the syllabus (but its the one 2003 onwards, I believe for 2010 they have a new syllabus!):

Paper 1 topics are:

Prescribed Subject 1—The USSR under Stalin, 1924 to 1941

Prescribed Subject 2—Theemergence and development of the People’s Republic of China (PRC), 1946 to 1964

Prescribed Subject 3—The Cold War, 1960 to 1979

Requirements:

HL and SL

* one prescribed subject from a choice of three

* two 20th century world history topics from a choice of six

HL

* one regional option from a choice of five HL only

Hope I could help!
