My pleasure of course.
I'm guessing that you decided to become a subscriber then?
If you're looking at a Marxist politics/philosophy starting point then I very much recommend the following three books:
Alex Callinicos: The Resources of Critique (Cambridge: Polity, 2006).
Alex Callinicos: Bonfire of Illusions: The Twin Crises of the Liberal World (Polity, 2010).
David Harvey: The Enigma of Capital and the Crises of Capitalism (Profile Books, 2010)
Of these three David Harvey's book is probably the most accessible with Callinicos's Resources of Critique a little 'heavy' for those unfamiliar with a general Marxist framework. The advantage of reading Bonfire of Illusions and Enigma of Capital is that they are very much contemporary Marxism and address the current crisis as a way of explaining capitalism and how we can construct a Marxist alternative. Best wishes.
I know yes! It will be one of those things where I will want to go every year from now on.. I couldn't endure August bank holiday knowing it was happening and I wasn't theree
Hi, no problem, I find it helpful if someone is in the same position as me.
Same position in terms of unis too, I'm trying to narrow it down. I want to do Politics and International Relations (Birmingham, Cardiff, Reading, Leicester, York, Aberystwyth and Loughborough)
Have you tried speaking to your subject tutors and asked why they're not giving you the predicted grades and explained the situation you just told me, clearly you have the commitment and ability to reach those predicted grades. Like in the first half of AS, I completely underestimated it and did poorly but turned it around in the second half and now this year I'm going to put loads of effort in. I'd just say do the best you can in the coming weeks and show your tutors that you are capable of getting AAB and if you can get ABB, that's still very respectable as that will be the threshold for good unis next year, it was on the news this morning.
But I may not be the best source of information, if I ever get stuck, I usually book a meeting with my university counselor which sets my mind at ease or go to a few open days, I'm a worrier haha.
Hope I've helped, good luck!
Hi, I just got your reply for the thread 'grades for uni' and I wanted to say thanks, it gave me a lot of encouragement!
I wanted to apply for English Langauge and Communication at uni (KCL, Birmingham, York, Cardiff, QMUL, Reading and Kent) - Still narrowing down!
As you saw I got BBCD (dropped the D Subject) and my official predictions stand at ABC from my college, I don't understand why they won't predict me A and B in the other two subjects?
I was 8 ums off an A and 1 ums off a A in the coursework and the paper I got a C in, not only I was ill on the day of the exam but I was undprepared fror the last section then the paper got remarked 2 weeks before I got the result down from a B to a C (it was basically rigged), my teachers have said I have until October to turn my predicted grades around to AAB by working hard or take a gap year, I'm so stuck!
