    What's the likelihood of an essay coming up that is solely on gender or ethnicity (e.g (e.g 'Critically examine view that females are far more likely to suffer poverty') rather than one that focuses on both?

    According to my teacher pretty unlikely, and gender / race came up last year so it probably won't feature in this years paper.

    What did you get for Paper 2 and the other essays?
    I got a B (66%) in the prelim, with a botched essay as well, 7/15, because I ran out of time, although I'm aiming for an A in this exam.
    12/15, 13/15, 14/15, 5/15 haha and on paper 2 i got 24/30

    Sorry guys, gave that STV vs FPTP essay to my teacher today, got 11/15 so not the best essay to learn off of

    Going to put some emphasis on the DME tonight, really want as high as possible which would give me breathing space for essays.

    27/30 would mean I'd need 8.5 for each essay, and I'm sure I can get at least two essays that get over 10 which would put me in a great position for an A! Not bothered if it is an A2, an A is an A!

    My teacher told us to learn the following:

    Decision making in central government- backbench mps v government, parliament v government, pressure groups, slsleaze

    Voting systems- definitely a straight forward ams v fptp or pr v fptp

    Health & Wealth- main causes of health and wealth inequalities, collectivist v individualist

    USA- political progress for em's, how em's impact elections, American dream

    Our teachers have been pretty good every year for predictions!



    Hey! Thanks for the voting systems and decision making, and h +w! but any chance your teacher knows about China?

    I'm looking over a DME I did before where I got 13/20 for the report. Teacher said "Bullet points probably too detailed and to improve your mark you should counter your criticisms". So when I putting across my arguements for whatever I support, do I need to make my point, then put a counter arguement to the point I support and then counter the counter arguement to my point? As thats what I'm picking up from what my teacher wrote. Sorry if thats confusing.

    China is supposed to be Social and Economic change in China (Same question as analysising the move from state controlled economy to a market economy) or opposition to the CPC.


    Also is collectivist vs individualist essay the same as role of government essay?

    I think it's likely to be either the influence of ethnic minorities on the outcome of elections, immigration, the American dream (social inequalities is basically the same) and for Africa I think there's a good chance of Qs on either UNIs or NGOs.

    How did you get an A? Was it lots of facts or well balanced points?


    Posted from TSR Mobile

    A bit of both to be honest. If you remember all your facts (statistics) the knowledge behind them should come naturally. In regards to balance, any essay has to be balanced so just make sure you have reasons from each point of view.

    Good luck on Thursday!

    I seriously hope so as I'm only learning UN and NGO for Africa.

    Quick question. I was off when we covered the welfare state, so what would you put in an essay for the government not meeting/meeting the original aims?

    That question came up last year so it would be very unlikely that they would ask the same thing 2 years in a row. But basically look at society today and how it has changed in terms of benefits, housing, healthcare etc.

    Thinking of doing that as well, given that trade came up last year and I do not know how to approach a social/economic Q.
    How are you structuring your NGO essay? I have about 3 case studies to use as examples of how NGOs are encouraging development.
