    For 3B 15 markers I did: how and why have socialists supported collectivism; conservatives social hierarchy; marxists and anarchists + the state
    45 marker: anarchism
    4B 15 markers: feminism criticisms; liberal criticism of multiculturalism; deep ecologists + sustainability
    45 marker: nationalism

    I think we did the same questions apart from that one 45 marker... :eek2: I thought the 45 mark questions went excellently, you?
    Tbh, I struggled a bit with the 15 markers - especially the socialism and anarchism ones in 3B and the feminism and ecologism ones in 4B. I checked the mark schemes and managed to fit in a fair amount of information, but it was a bit of a mess and not well written.



    Yes, it is. Which questions did you do and how did you feel about it?
    For me I thought the first paper had great 15 markers but I found the anarchism 45 marker tricky, and with the second paper it was the other way around. I think I did all of the same questions as you except the 15 marker on multiculturalism! Immediately after I did the sustainability Q I wished I'd done a different one 😞Politics is definitely what I have my lowest expectations for, I think I really let myself down. Good luck though! 😃

    I'm actually really stressed about results, and I'm genuinely afraid of what may happen if I don't get the results I need. To some, it may just seem like I'm chasing prestige but it goes so much beyond that, I can't even begin to explain it.

    I'm really, really scared. You know how people get high blood pressure when they're stressed? I'm so panicky that I've got low blood pressure (I've learnt how to check from my nursing trainee sister).

    The next few days are gonna be pretty tough, and goodness knows what will happen when I see the grade boundaries.

    I hate that this sounds overly emotional and desperate but this is truly how I feel about results day.
    What's your firm/what course? Did I remember you saying your offer was A*A*A? I definitely feel you on the stress front - I was so relieved when my offer was A*AA, yet even though I was aiming for higher than that in the exams I keep convincing myself that I've got nowhere near, aaah!

    The course is quite popular and the uni is a Russel group and I don't have any other backup unis that I would happily apply to so it's either get in to That one or don't go at all but I guess a gap year wouldn't be that bad like so many people have to retake things and applying again would take up time anyways and seeing as I think I'm gonna get equivalent grades for my firms's offer I guess I could try and apply there again ahaha ; gosh this uncertainty is killing me
    Any chance you could exceed your firms offer?

    LOL you guys think youre exam board is awful, I think you should be grateful you didnt do OCR B Salters -.- No examboard could be as worse as OCR B Salters
    I agree. I also did Salters, hoping F334 is like 63 for an A and F335 80/120 for an A. Any higher would b unfair I think

    Not a chance in hell and I really want to go to my firm but it's just my insurance that I don't want to go to and thus would rather try my luck in clearing if my firm rejects me !

    Well it means some people haven't met the grades which could mean them. If there are lots of places in clearing it either means loads of people have missed the grades massively, or they're being very strict on people who only just missed out :/

    or it could mean that places are not filled up most unis still had spaces when clearing first came out this year/people may have changed course thus freeing up space - not necessarily due to missing grades

    Depends what the course is - some are very competitive and so places being filled won't have been a problem
