    Below are some Essay plans I've done (still doing the 45 mark plans for unit 3 so not finished the document), not all of them are amazing because some questions are disgusting.

    I also put together a document of examples, it's not all the examples you need to know but a lot of those ones are recent.

    I only have Unit 3 stuff right now, I'm still working on my unit 4 ones, but seeing as unit 3 is sooner I've done a lot more.

    I'll post some unit 4 stuff when I've done a bit more of it
    Hi, could you screenshot them please, the word on my computer isn't working and so I can't open the documents. I'd be super grateful!

    They're a bit long to screenshot (20+Pages). PM your email and I'll send you a pdf of them if you'd like

    Heavily outdated in textbooks and the questions are too open and overlap with other topics which I don't really like

    I'm in the same boat as you! I'm planning questions it detail and going over examples. I think Pressure groups is coming up for the 45 markers and so my focus is on that, I know it's risky but I find it works for me and has done in my previous exam ..so fingers crossed

    definitely fingers crossed

    Yeah just planning past questions, attempting to do notes this late for me would be a waste of time as i'll remember little, plans/ mark schemes will help me know what the examiner is looking for and how to write it. But everyones different! Definetly use mark schemes though they are actually the best resource!

    great point, cheers, I remember my teacher saying how questions constantly recycle themselves too.
    Is there any chance you could do the examples for Unit 4C, that would be amazing! Your 3C notes are beyond brilliant

    Hey are you guys revising from the textbook? It's so dense and a lot of it is full of examples pre-2012
    I've hardly looked at the text book, I've been using the mark schemes and specifications and learning from there as I find the text book to be useful but there is a lot of unnecessary information in there now

    Does anyone have any predictions as to what will come up?
    For 3C I feel like we'll get a question (hopefully) on the nomination process or electoral college because of the rise of Trump
    Possibly something on Third Parties/ assessment on Obama's time in office (I don't think parties will come up though)
    Pressure groups 99% because it didn't come up last year but I'm not a fan of pressure groups
    If race does come up then possible immigration as that has been discussed so much recently, especially with Trump and his wall

    4C
    Presidents power to persuade
    Something on the supreme court because of Scalia although that came up last year
    Federalism for the constitution 45 marker

    For 4C, would Congress come up because it didn't last year? They might use SC in a 15 marker about Scalia

    Yeah 100% maybe it'll be a broken branch question or how effective are checks and balances, they could probably ask that instead of a president question as that came up last year and the other topics seem more relevant

    The paper/markscheme was made before Scalia died.
