    How many questions are there? I know we have to answer 3 15 markers and 1 45 marker but wondering how many options there were?
    If my memory serves me correct, it's 3 out of 5 and 1 out of 3. Therefore usually 2 questions on each topic.

    do you have the mark schemes for this if so can you post them please
    No sorry I don't but they are on the edexcel website to download. Go to subjects, government and politics, pick if it was 2008 + question or before 2008 and then mark scheme and then you can download the right one.

    Edexcel have taken out all the past papers were before 2008!.Anyone know where i can get past papers and mark schemes from the old syllabus?

    I was just wondering whether anyone knew what questions came up in June 2010 for Unit 3 on Political Ideologies?

    Does anyone have any mark schemes for this paper?? I only have the jun 2008 one D:

    does anybody have the question paper for Jan 2011?

    This was posted from The Student Room's Android App on my ST18i

    I was thinking of just revising 3 out of 4 topics for each unit
    Probably won't do socialism as its quite long... and for unit 4 probably won't do the longest one in the textbook...

    how risky is this? were other people fine in the exam just doing 3?

    Sooooooo not ready for the exam tomorrow :'(

    Hellllloooooooo, has anyone got a list of past questions?

    Do you still have your notes. I Have some essays to complete. I'd really appreciate the help.
