    YES omg that's exactly the same as me. Any tips on how to revise, because learning about 60 essays is so so difficult??
    Well I'm currently planning all the predictions you gave me a few posts back for 4C because I hate that unit so much. A couple of pages back I posted predictions for unit 3C (15 markers only) so I've planned all those and learned them inside out basically
    As for 45 markers I'm struggling

    I don't write them out as I don't think timing is an issue for me but I plan them in detail, like for 15 markers I plan
    - Basic point, example, explanation for all 4 paragraphs but it's really brief so it's easier to recall if I just think of certain words

    Some examples I remember really well, especially the 2016 election stuff, but dates and SC cases just go over my head and I barely remember them

    Looked through every 3C question and they follow a pattern in the 45s where one topic doesn't get in every 3 years. Based on this I assume the topics for the 45's this year will be Race/Elections/Pressure Groups

    Basically race 45's have 3 topics:
    - Affirmative action
    - Importance of race in us politics
    - How the current government has dealt with race; whether the incumbent has helped cure race problems.

    Do you find that some questions they ask are SOOOO specific and you literally only have one thing to write about it??

    Yes! Even though we have a choice of 5 and then a choice of 3, my biggest nightmare is that I won't be able to answer any/I can only answer a couple hahah
    I am revising it but I'm hoping to avoid a race question and I hope there's an election 45 marker on election reform or something

    Does anyone have any idea on the UMS points and grading system? For example how many marks you need for a grade overall? (AS + A2) :/

    Not very specific, but my teacher doesn't think SC will be a 45 marker and she thinks there might be two 15 markers on president (for unit 4)

    A 45 marker on the Electoral College would be lovely, or one about whether or not PGs are democratic
