    I'm hoping it wasn't necessary..
    What was the actual question word for word?
    I can't even remember now!
    the part a was;- explain and illustrate the difference between contingent and necessary truths
    part b was (at least something along these lines, very very similar)- 'without a predetermined conceptual scheme we would make no sense of our experiences' - discuss this view and explain the implications of this for empiricists.

    aah I totally forgot to write about the fact that conceptual schemes can differ socially/culturally and through language (Von Humbolt, Davidson) was that ABSOLUTELY necessary?! I just really did kant vs empiricism, and the proof that we do have synthetic a priori knowledge - rendering locke's 'tabula rasa' incorrect (he doesn't account for the faculty to 'thread' experience)... then evaluation by ockham's razor. How many marks am I likely to lose for not mentioning other conceptual schemes?
    Nothing is necessary, if you provide relevant points and justify your arguments you should necessarily do fine! : P

    OH, thinking about it again, I doubt von humbolt and davidson were necessary - here it asks for the idea of a predetermined scheme - whereas they just actually advocate that the 'framework' differs culturally/socially - my assumption is that they are asking about conceptual schemes in the broader sense. something like kant's theory which can be applied universally.

    Also think they like you to present a range on answers so also mentioned abit about language being a conceptual scheme. the grade boundries are normally very low for philosophy so there isnt much to worry about if you did well on every other question and do well on tuesday .
    Having done philosophy AQA AS: this is wrong. The grade boundaries are quite low, but the marking is ridiculously harsh. I wrote the best essay of my life for reason and experience. I got a low B. And no I'm not stupid.

    Oh God. I am the only one who never wrote anything about Kant.
    And the word for word question was: Without a predetermined conceptual scheme our sensory experiences would be unintelligable. Assess the implications of this for empiriscm.

    predetermined is the 'a priori' (or theoretically the 'innate' faculty) of the scheme, which means it is universal for everyone- the fact everyone is able to have ordered experience and 'thread' memory (transcendental unity of apperception)

    You didn't necessarily have to talk about Kant, in the textbook thereis more reference to language than Kant. As long as you explained something im sure itll be fine, which conceptual scheme did you talk about?

    I don't think mine were even relevant -__- i Did no revision on conceptual schemes so I just wrote about language and time (conceptual relativsm) and how it isn't predetermined or something like that. It made no sense. Eugh. I mentioned something about Locke and how things can't be transulated. Basically, making things up as I went along :p:

    How did you find it?

    Language could work, i mentioned it too, like wharf and wittgenstein and that lot? And time is relevant too... think you only need 45 out of 90 to get an a so if you did well on your other questions there's nothing to worry about, what other question did you answer? x

    I thought R+E was actually pretty good (although we hadn't covered conceptual schemes in depth so I sort of guessed - used Locke, Sapir-Whorf and concluded with Kant's synthesis).

    For the second question, though, I did morality. Wasted five minutes trying to work out if part A was a trick question (virtue as in virtue ethics or Kant), and went for virtue ethics in the end. Then I ran out of time on the last question and barely even mentioned Kant or Hume...

    I'm annoyed at myself cause I actually KNEW the content; I just wrote too slowly. I think I'm looking at B/C but I need an A overall...
