    what topics did you do?
    All of them. Do you mean what I studied or the questions I answered?

    You should definitely talk about Jeremy Corbyn's ideologies/policy proposals- shows the examiner you keep up with current affairs!



    For political parties (sorry i'm not doing pressure groups), just look at what cameron and corbyn both want in each policy area, e.g. in education, economy, defence, etc. Keep up to date with the news, the examiners really like that apparently.

    Edit: Actually, for pressure groups, I remember my teacher telling us to look up relevant pressure groups- so for example, find particular pressure groups and research them, e.g. were they successful in proposing new legislation- which you could use in a "success of pressure groups" essay, or something.

    hope I helped
    yes you did, thank you- looks like i need to catch up on the news tonight lmao

    Soooooo, what are your predictions for political parties? No one I know is doing this topic, apparently its the hardest because of the sheer number of different questions that could come up :/

    Really?? I think the questions are quite repetitive- excluding the 5 markers, they always put either define consensus, define adversarial, distinguish between right/left wing, define Thatcherism, define liberalism, etc. So, yeah the 5 markers are pretty unpredictable, as well as 10 markers.

    But for 25 markers, I feel like it's really repetitive, like divisions between conservative party and labour party or divisions within the conservative or labour party- or just saying how they're different to their old ideologies.
    I'm not sure on what else they could ask for 25 markers, except for maybe functions of political parties? D:

    what do you think?

    Oh unit one is gonna kill me bro! My teacher for this unit is useless and has literally put me to sleep most lessons. Luckily my unit 2 teacher is great.

    My main worry is my current insufficient application knowledge

    Im the same to be honest. I am really worried about the time, but then again, the more you can write the better.

    I think Im going to try and do the 5 and ten marker as quickly as possible, and therefore have plenty of time for the 25 marker. I think most mark schemes only require 2 for and 2 against for level 3 too, but the more you can write, chances are, the greater chance you will pick up A01 marks.

    Im going to aim for 3 for and 3 against. Hope this helps
