    in my school we haven't had a single general studies lesson, and all the guidance they've given us is guess if we're unsure and that it's not hard....feel so unprepared

    The topic that is going to come up is going to be about the effect of homosexuality and black people on Britain.

    My sentiments exactly. Among other things I think I mentioned Alton Towers, ancient Sparta, Charles Dickens, Liverpool, the Atari, ISIS, Theresa May and George Orwell at different points in my essay. I'm quite proud tbh.

    The Guardian article they gave on religion was dull as sh*t. It was horrible, time managed it poorly myself so didn't have long to answer the easy essay questions at the end.

    Richard Dawkins, former Catholic priest, post-911 Islamic convert and promoter of "vague faith". The examiners had a field day with that question!

    Found Source A interesting. ****ed up a few of the definitions. Laughed out loud at the Dawkins question and moderator asked why. Told him and he had a chuckle too.

    I'd never done a past paper before, and found myself mostly copying sources word for word. Hope it doesn't cause too much of a problem in terms of my mark.. made a great analogy about how once you hit your child, you become the monster from the bed time story.

    I argued really strongly in favour of smacking your children (tho ofc i provided balance for the sake of fulfilling the question criteria), i hope the examiner doesn't think I'm a future child abuser

    I couldn't find a way to counter-argue (advocate smacking) so I just tried to be really powerful/emotive in my reasons against it.

    Fairly interesting exam!

    We actually had this debate in a French lesson not long ago (although we spoke in english, I don't think AQA would advocate us learning about arguably mild child abuse on the syllabus) so I basically reused my points
