    Yeh!
    Thanks! And I saw you mention govt. policies to reduce wealth inequalities/poverty above. In my essay I had four paragraphs each of which focussing on a different vulnerable group (lone parents, children, unemployed, elderly) and included the various governments schemes to help them (NDLP, Child Tax Credit/Benefit, JSA, Winter Fuel Payment etc) as well as accessing the effectiveness of each.

    I don't know if that's any good, but it was based on an essay I wrote that received 13/15.

    Both my UN and NGO essays are far too long and are only giving me 11 marks
    I have know idea what those essays are but it is down to the fact that you are just going on and on about it. Essays have to be kept short and to the point.

    It slightly worries me that all the NGO essays i've seen on here have been structured with a benefit or negative in each paragraph...

    My teacher told us to have paragraphs that just focused on individual NGOs and then two short paragraphs on benefits/negatives...

    Paragraph 1 - Christian Aid (project and effectiveness)
    Paragraph 2 - Save The Children (project and effectiveness)
    Paragraph 3 - Benefits of NGOs
    Paragraph 4 - Negatives of NGOs

    I think i'll have to do some rethinking!

    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.
    Voting system? I'm kind of confused, what do you mean? I thought the American Dream essay was just about social / economic inequalities?!

    Arghhh...no, I'm sorry. I meant to say social and economic inequalities.
    My mind must have been wandering. Sorry if I caused a mini heart attack.
    Forgive me.

    I don't know if this is the right way to go about it, but basically I'm writing 4 paragraphs each focusing on an individual agency and then linking the work of these agencies to the Millenium Development Goals, i.e. giving examples of where the agencies have and have not been effective. I'm afraid I've not actually written an essay on this topic, but I'm making a mind map for it.

    Do you guys think for USA its more likey to be immigration or Ethnic influence on vote as its only come up once in the last 5 years compared to Powers of the president and Social and economic inequalities cause that's similar to the American Dream question. So is it necessary to learn something about Social and economic inequalities and government policies to reduce these?

    you will need to know social and economic inequalities if a question like american dream came up but not knowledge of government policies reducing them because that Q came up 2 years ago.
    The question will most likely the two you guessed or political progress

    ahh okay that makes more sense! I did almost have a panic attack there
    In answer to your question yes, that's what I'm doing.

    We've all clearly got voting systems on the brain... Modern studies will drive me mad.
