    Perfect exam for me. The only thing that slightly worried me was the central government question. Was worded quite weirdly.
    Oh, god, that question was horrible for me! I revised Backbench MPs to death but the wording of the question completely threw me off. I'm so annoyed i messed it up!

    What did you do for it?

    Two people in my class answered that question despite us not covering that topic area in class. I think they have failed MS.

    I just did cabinet influences vs parliament influences. So prime ministers influences.. backbench influence... pressure groups.. select committees... whips... that sort of thing.

    Does anybody know if markers are really strict or quite lenient? If percentages or facts are wrong do they give you marks for the point and analysis regardless?

    If you said 96% voted labour but 35% actually did, them they won't credit but if it is
    Minor and unnoticeable you'll be fine, positive markinggg

    The wording threw me off since it sounded like one of the H & W questions. How did you tackle the question btw?

    I got a bit stuck on the second question in the DME (As part of the 10 marker's) but I think I got it in the end. Was it just me that thought source C3 about socio-economic fingymajiggy was confusing as hell?

    I did roughly the same:

    SEZs:
    • boosted China's economy
    • led to increase in middle classes
    • Mass FDI has led to more westernized lifestyles

    However:
    • Factory workers exploited
    • Those in rural areas have not benefitted equally



    Private Enterprise:
    • Being rich is encouraged
    • Created many wealthy people in China
    • Richest man has 12.6 billion USD
    • Capitalist approach lifted many out of poverty

    HOWEVER:
    • Not all Chinese citizens have become rich
    • Rural tax still too high
    • 10% of poorest live in less than 1USD each day
    • Richest 10% of pop hold over 45% of the wealth
    • China Gini Coefficent very high


    Education:
    • 9 year free compulsory education
    • relaxation of Hukou allowed migrant children better opportunities, however still difficult for them to access education
    • Private schools for the rich
    • Govt have spent more money on improving rural schools
    • Urban/ Rural income gap has decreased


    Healthcare:
    • Two tier-system with one for rich and poor
    • Private healthcare easily afforded by the wealthy
    • Poor increasing use of "black clinics"
    • 2/5th blame financial problems on health costs
    • China 187th out of 191 countries for unequal access to healthcare
    • Since 2009, Govt spent money on reforming system
    • Pledge for 2020 to introduce new system



    I hope that my essay actually answers the question. I am not sure .

    Yes! Perhaps I am simply a thicko, but I wasted about 5 whole minutes staring agog at the silly diagram.
