    Oh wow so your on a gap year I suppose.
    How did you get 3 As over the 4 units and end up with a C? You should have got s B. That's really strange cos my mate got the exact same and he got a high B overall.

    How's revision going for you btw?

    I got low A grades on unit 1 and 2 and my E grade was very low, my C grade is 1 ums mark from a B. Revision is ok i started last month due to still having all my written notes. If you are doing unit 4 id advise you to not do ecologism lol. Im trying to look for the june 2015 papers but cant seem to find them

    Wow they put last years paper up now? Im sure they didn't do it last year, great, now i know what not to revise lol.

    Ecologism for me was the hardest topic, there's just so many strands in the ideology and its all very confusing. Just focus on the other three. I dont think that there will be any new questions, as if you look from 2010 to 2015, the questions have just been recycled throughout the years, so im expecting the same for this year. I just revised by learning everything i could, doing past papers and writing up example answers.

    So since last years unit 3 paper had no anarchism 45 marker, ill be focusing the bulk of my revision on every single anarchism 45 mark past question.

    Liberalism, Anarchism and socialism is what im doing due to them linking together so well, ive never really liked the conservative 45 markers, but i will attempt to do the 15 markers if they are easy. You have a fair bit of time to learn the ideologies, learning one completely will literally take you a few hours, just for the next 2-3 weeks just dedicate your life to your exams, it will be over before you know it.

    Ahhh it's going insanely bad for me, it's sad because I've been working hard all year and I just can't seem to grasp unit 3 and 4 b. The past few days I've just been feeling so stressed and non stop crying.
    I've memorised all my notes and content but as soon as I get a question in front of me I can't answer it. I've tried to practise so many past questions yet there's no improvements I 100% feel like I'm going to fail.

    Hey, don't cry it'll be alright. You just need to take a break from revision and then go back to it with a fresh mind and trust me you'll be fine. After these exams are over you'll feel so much better & remember, eveyone struggles with this exam so hopefully the grade boundaries won't be too high. Keep positive
