    I thought it was easy - that's why getting involved with the Model House of Commons and United Nations here on TSR helped me in the exam!

    I surprised myself and had a lot to write about for the essay question. The scenarios (Section B) and a couple of the Section A questions through me but I answered them anyway.

    I thought it was alright. I thought a couple in section A weren't as obvious as I'd of liked them to of been :P Also I don't think I learnt about Community Cohesion...so that threw me a bit but looking at my revision book now it looks like I got something along the right lines anyway I was also really surprised with how much I wrote for section C, I usually struggle with them questions but today I had to ask for more paper! haha

    I only finished at the last minute, felt I struggled with the Section A questions. What do you think you got?
    I hope I get a high A... But I doubt it!

    Yeah section A questions were more difficult than they have been on the practice papers I've done, I did guess a couple... I kinda hope I got a high A or a low A* cause I got an A* in my coursework and it would be awesome to get one overall. I don't think I did though....I did kinda make my answers up as I went along and kinda guess stuff....

    It was about what should a political member do whats most important if gained power (along those lines) and I put to elect relevent party members or summit. I deliberated with "to protect human rights" also.

    I can't remember, I either put the one about protecting human rights or the about choseing someone to represent them if elected...I kept changing my mind and I can't remember which one I did in the end...

    I hate it when I can't even be confident to the answer of the first question! haha

    It was a stupid question as they were both equally important and subjective to different people's ideologies. But if you think about it, you can vote for a dictatored party which would jeopardize human rights (such as Communists), therefore I chose against the human rights one as some people dont believe in them. I thought about writing that but the mark scheme just says (i) etc, so I wouldn't get any credit

    Mine was out of 40 but if out of 30 it would be every 10%. So A* = 90%, A = 80% and so forth.

    You would of got a B!
