    In the Heywood book I can't even find info needed for certain questions.. How do you guys overcome this problem?

    The Heywood book has certain core values, for example, tradition for conservatism, split into paragraphs. These paragraphs can form your argument for a 15 marker which needs 3 points, so for tradition, the paragraphs are based on religious faith, wisdom of the past and identity. If you look the the mark schemes, the indicative content is basically the theories in the Heywood book. Hope that helps!

    I've noticed that everyone is using the Heywood book, we're using the small edexcel textbooks - do they have any extra information?

    Any tips? You know the 15 marker....do you just use the themes from the heywood book to answer them...E.G Freedom, Individualism, reason etc?

    I really need to do well in this exam.

    I'm not using the Hayward book so I wouldn't know.
    For 15 markers its just about learning the key 'points' I find - the examiners report on EDEXCEL is the most helpful thing I personally found.

    I, personally, found the 15 markers to be slighter harder as you do need refined information. But just make sure you make 15 points and make sure it LINKS TO THE QUESTION - I found so many people in the examiners reports went off an a tangent and one talked about individualism in a constitutional question, which ins't needed at all.

    I've planned out for literally every 15 marker there is - as they are always repeated.

    I usually just make as many points as possible.

    I must admit some of the 15 markers don't have a lot of content - you've really got to explain your points. But look on the examiners reports - they're so helpful for extra information.

    I must admit i find the only ideology I am confident with is liberalism!

    Finally feeling better about this exam, I spent yesterday and Saturday writing a detailed plan for every single possible question for anarchism, liberalism and conservatism. Wrote them all on to flash cards so they're easier to carry on, just going to continuously go over these plans. Hopefully they will get me a B!
