    How's your revision going and do you know which questions you'll be hoping come up?

    I'm doing Route C, Representation in the USA.

    I've taken my A last year for granted and as a result I am woefully under prepared.

    I have literally crammed Socialism, Anarchism and Conservatism in a single day. Somehow, I don't think this will go down well.

    I found the first half of the paper awful.. I cried 3 times in that first half.
    However, I'm hoping the 45 mark question balances it all out, because I remembered all the differences and similarities between modern and classical liberalism..
    Hopefully it will be good enough so I can just focus on Unit 4 in the summer..

    Thought the actual exam was ok, horrible start though, we've learnt ideologies and were given the political ideas paper, apparently the college just put down paper 3 on our exam entries, and Edexcel assumed it was route A rather than querying it. Don't suppose anyone else had this?

    I hated that paper. It didn't help that my Politics teacher made me cry + throw up the evening before, and I was still pretty upset about it.

    I doubt for any of my exams I've sat this season will be more than a C grade.

    ****...no, thankfully. Our exams office IS pretty rubbish but thankfully they've at least pulled their socks up (in regard to A2s at least!)

    We almost had a power outage during the exam though...*******.
