    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.
    Looking at the NGO essay I did months ago I structured it into 3 positive paragraphs with Short term aid, long term, NGO's can go to places world governments can't

    and then negative aspects- can project their own agendas, public can get compassion fatigue, UN increasingly reliant on NGOs making NGOs too powerful, people can become to aid reliant, dont have resources to tackle huge problems.

    I only got 11 for essay and needed to write more for long term aid and give more examples. I'm tempeted to find another essay somewhere on internet to switch about and learn parts of instead of that though. Not sure yet.

    So many predictions here...

    Out of all the predictions posted here can someone post up a FINAL prediction for each of the topics which are most likely to come up in your opinion? Especially for Africa, and Electoral.

    Hey, would you be willing to send me it, by any chance.
    If you're not able to, it's fine but it would be a great help.

    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.

    Thank-you very much x

    Is it just me who feels like there is still so much to know and such little time left? I am seriously panicking...

    Have so far revised AMS vs FPTP, Devolution on Scotland, American Dream, Ethnic minorities influence on the elections, Poverty/individual lifestyle choices on health.

    Only one day left now to revise anybody else have any suggestions as to what else to revise?

    I am thinking:- Immigration, EM's political progress/participation, STV vs FPTP, Collectivist vs Indivualist, and the relationship between Holyrood + Westminster. Also DME bakground knowledge.. im thinking it will be on minimum alcohol pricing?

    For each topic he could be because theres only so many questions you can ask. In health and wealth hes repeating questions from the past 2007 years but wording it differently therefore im revising 3 out of the possible 4 in H n W topic
    so what are you revising just to clarify?

    Is anyone else just learning voting system and the American dream as one essay? That's what I'm doing, and my teacher said that I should exemplify on the constitutional rights of American citizens in addition to that when doing the dream essay.
