    Have you all been taught Party List in detail? We only covered it really roughly so we could mention it in an essay about FPRP v PR in general, I'm pretty certain I couldn't write a whole essay comparing FPTP and Party List!
    :eek:
    Do you think they could ask that?
    At my school we have literally only focused on AMS, STV and FPTP.

    This might be a stupid question but would the social and economic inequalities question that everyone is predicting for the USA topic be about the success of government policies to reduce them or could it be a different question?

    You could be asked about the inequalities themself, or about how effective the government policies have been to reduce them.

    The same way that for H+W you could be asked about the wealth inequalities that exist in the UK, or about how effective the government policies have been in reducing these inequalities.

    I was looking through the past papers and it seems questions hardly ever come up two years in a row, so it's not likely to be on the Welfare State or Gender/ethnic inequalities. I'm still learning the gender/ethnic stuff though as it can be applied to other questions.
    I'm thinking a 'wealth and health should be govt responsibility' type question might come up, and a 'lifestyle/poverty/income on health' one does seem likely.
    Has anyone been looking at this site? http://www.understandingstandards.or.../Higher/Higher
    There are some essays on there that got 15 marks which are good for revision

    After a quick look at the past papers, I'm thinking either a question on the existence of health and/or wealth inequalities in the UK, or the effectiveness of government policies in reducing health and/or wealth. I'm going to go all out and say it will be specific to health/social inequalities though.

    They tend to ask either a question on health, wealth, gender, or race inequalities and/or the government policies in reducing these.

    Hello,
    I was wondering whether you thought it would be a risky idea to forgo revising voting behaviour, and just revise electoral systems given that behaviour has come up in the past two years?

    If it was me I'd make sure I know a enough about voting behaviour to at least write a crappy essay on it (which you probably do already know without much revision), but concentrate on making sure I know the voting systems really well. From what I remember, voting behaviour isn't exactly a massive topic so just have a quick look over it just incase.

    Do you think that will come up? It has been up twice in the last 3 years, my gut instinct tells me that it wont come up..... There is so much to remember. I am spending my time out-guessing the SQA on what may come up, i just can't revise for everything, there is way too much info.

    I agree with you :P I personally dont think that will come up because last year was about government in reducing gender/race inequalites though a question may ask about social and economic inequalites existing in the UK still. so i may just look at it a little.....

    The problem with that understanding standards answer is that it looks like it was written pre 2010 so doesn't have anything about newer tory legislation, still a good place to start though.

    Oh yeah, of course I would mention the new welfare reforms in there. I think that's the good and bad thing about Modern Studies, the answer always changes
