    The issues are about general synopticity of the entire course. But I understand there are four issues (gender bias, cultural bias, ethical issues, and use of non-human animals). My teacher has only taught us ethical issues and non-human animals, so I presume you can get away with only knowing 2 out of the 4 issues.

    The only thing that will get you through is the fact that they can literally only ask you the same(ish) essay title each year, so just practice writing one essay up and you'll be able to get a good mark. You can find past papers on the AQA website, they are also very good for mark schemes.
