    The WHO report in 2008 on world health identified that the Calton area of East Glasgow plagued with high unemployment has the lowest life expectancy in the developed world at 53.9? Hope that helps

    Hey, I was wondering if any of you guys reckon for the USA topic there'll be a question on the supreme court controlling the powers of the president? I can only find one point for the supreme court and that's judicial review... so if it comes up I won't have a very balanced essay...

    there wont be a complete essay on that cause theres not much to say really, hence why they chuck in congress and supreme court together as theres more to say about congress checking the presidents power. your better revising other questions tbh cause this wont come up

    For the USA I'm revising the American Dream, S&E inequalities, political progress/political influence of ethnic minorities. Is there anything else I should cover?

    This is what I've revised:

    Voting systems - AMS/STV vs FPTP
    USA - EM influence on elections, social and economic inequalities/American dream, govt responses and am about to do immigration
    Health and Wealth - govt responses to inequality, gender, health and wealth link, but feel a bit shaky on collectivism vs individualism and gender
    Africa - NGOs and UNOs.

    Oh yeah I've done immigration, and kind of covered the govt responses in my revision, but I might look at that in more depth

    What is the difference between a grade C and B essay? Our teacher never gave us marks for essays so I don't know what standard mine are.

    Lack of ethnic minority representation in congress, such as the fact that there are currently no black senators.
    Just to mention in case this comes up, there are now 2 black senators.

    Is health and wealth link the same as impact of income on health?

    and what two for health and wealth do you think are most likely to come up?

    I'm just learning impact of income on health and collectivism vs individualism.

    Grade C you're looking at just a pass 8/15. B will probably be 10 or 11 upwards?

    Does anyone have any sample essays (or even essay plans) on government policies to reduce poverty? Because I can't think of much the coalition has done in terms of that...
