    I will be very surprised if anything involving health comes up. It came up in the 2009,2010 and 2011 paper, so I think it's highly unlikely.

    Purely using logic, I think it'll be a collectivist/individualist question - mainly because of all the coalition's benefit reforms.
    what about the possibility of lifestyle or income affecting health?

    could you give examples what you mean? of how to bring it in i mean :P could i use a deprived area as a social inequality ?
    http://www.sqa.org.uk/pastpapers/pap...per-1_2007.pdf

    Here's the marking instructions for the last time that question came up
    so yeah you could talk about those living in deprived areas have lower life expectancy than those in well off, and are more likely to eat junk food and do less exercise, that sort of thing

    I would have thought a health one would be more likely because it didn't come up last year. I agree with you on the collectivist/individualist though

    Okay I have done the first two with success (I hope!) How would I go about the social.economic factors if the question was like the 2007 question:
    To what extent do social and economic inequalities continue to exist in the UK?

    Thanks

    I might just do government resposes for: gender, race etc and what inequalities still exist but I'm not sure if that is going off the question?

    Well i did it on economic/social inequalities for gender and race and than i may consider other social inequalites like deprived area stuff. I dunno hahaha! Cause in the marking guide for SQA it says you can talk about gender pay gap, glass ceiling... unemployment levels higher for ethnic minorities etc

    My teacher's predictions:

    UK: impact of poverty on health
    Individualism vs gov.
    He doesn't think a gender or race question will come up.

    South Africa: Social inequalities

    Scotland: Role of MSPs, impact on decision making and scrutinising gov
    Devolved and reserved- compromise/conflict

    Politics of Development: NGOS or UN and Health and Education

    Any thoughts?

    Yes, co operation and conflict. Are your predictions similar? Some people are saying a race and/or gender question may come up. What do you think?

    Do not give me the credit, this is Ecosse_14's advice but I've been following his structure for a while without even realising it!

    Introduction - give a brief introduction to what the policy being discussed actually is, your decision on it and list a few arguments you're going to give.

    Arguments for your proposal - bullet point around 3 arguments supporting your decision
    Argument 1 - Argue your case, referring to the sources given and backround knowledge
    Argument 2 - See above
    Argument 3 - See above

    Arguments against your proposal and rebuttal - bullet point around 3 arguments which contradict your decision
    Argument 1 - Say briefly what other people might say against your decision, back it up with a source if you can't use the source anywhere else and then totally rip it shreds to be honest. Say the argument then say 'however' and argue how the reason is not valid and you have evidence against it.
    Repeat for the other 2 arguments

    Conclusion - Sum it all up, summarising your arguments and stating whether they should reject or accept the proposal.


    General advice
    1. Read what the actual task says, what your role is and try and understand what the proposal is.
    2. Look at all of the stats/diagrams in source C and get an idea what they're about.
    3. Read sources A & B, decide which is for and which is against the proposal and whilst you're reading them, underline it and write notes throughout them on things that agree with the stats/contradict source C as this will form the basis of your report.
    4. Decide if you're going to accept or reject the proposal and then write the report.

    Make sure you use all of the sources (and try and use them several times). When you're writing an argument dont give evidence from source A, source B, source C1, source C2, etc in that order. Instead mix it up a bit, maybe start with C3, go onto A, then C1(a), or whatever, as this is what markers want to see. Make sure you use as much backround knowledge as possible too and annotate in your margin wherever you have used a source or BK. Also, write in a very argumentative language and refer to the ministers or committee or whatever. For example, 'Committee, I strongly suggest that you implement this proposal immediately'. It might sound sad but try and get really into it and really argumentative as if you were actually standing having a very heated debate with someone.

    Race gender for where? you mean health and wealth topic?

    Yeah me and some other people doing devolved Scotland think its going to be a devolution question involving reserved/devolved powers, MSPs role in decision making ( less likely ) or Co op and conflict between H and W
