    My teacher thought the paper was quiet hard
    She was like the 15 markers for both units were tricky
    I agree! Both were nowhere near easy! I found unit 3 better than unit 4, I just can't believe the boundaries have been pushed up a whole grade, so unfair!

    I've just checked out past paper mark schemes and the 15 mark answers - there's no way we had enough time to answer to the depth they needed us to answer in for Unit 1 and 2.

    Some 15 mark answers are slightly over half a page in length and that's bullet point format and there's no way I can think, plan, and then write that much in prose in 15 mins!

    I can't remember Unit 3 and 4's 15 markers, but my teacher thought the AS paper was harder than usual so I'm surprised that grade boundaries have gone up as a lot of people seem to have struggled (many in trying to decipher what the question was actually asking, especially on the constitution!).

    Also, what happened to sticky post for Unit 1 and 2? There were some fantastic resources/discussions there on topics/answers.

    Hi, is it okay if I private message you for help with socialism, liberalism and conservatism? I am really struggling as my teacher has skipped liberalism entirely :/ even though I feel like it is the most important ideology.

    Ngl I really enjoyed writing the democracy one 😂maybe it was only me...but no that would be horrific if they threw in an unexpected question in this unit
