    Exactly the same questions. 15 marks were ok, I finished them really quickly though so I think my content was a but thin. I think the 45 went really well, simple structure and I hope I made some good judgements and analysis

    Touch wood, but I found 4B really really good. Luckily i'd gone over most those questions in the morning..

    Sorry if they not worded correctly..

    15 Marks:

    Explain Conservatist Nationalism?
    Distinguish Between Political And Cultural Nationalism?
    How Far Do Ecologists Believe In Sustainability?

    45 Marks:

    To What Extent Do Multiculturalists support Diversity and Political Difference?

    3B:
    15s: Liberalism Economic vs Social Liberalism. Conservatism- One Nation and Liberalism- Constitutionalism
    45: Socialism - Equality.

    All in all, I didn't like the paper. Hadn't done Anarchism so thats reduced to two 45 markers and I just can't write enough about imperfection so that was Conservatism out the window so I was forced to do Socialism my worst ideology which isn't great. I'm feeling like I did ok though, not a complete failure.

    4B
    15s: Ecology Sustainability, National Conservatism and Gender Inequality.
    45s: Ecology Anthropocentrism

    Again, didn't like it and not done multiculturalism and Ecology is my worst from this lot and I didn't like the Feminist question. But I actually felt quite positive afterwards, I think I did good in the end so I'm hoping that has ended well.

    I need all the luck I can get really to get an A here.

    3B was absolutely terrible for me, I'd be surprised if I even scraped a B. I thought social liberalism meant something else to what it does, so probably got like no marks for that, and I only wrote a page - A PAGE - for the socialism 45 marker.

    But 4B was so amazing I nearly cried when I came out. I managed to write about four pages for the feminism 45 marker, and got quite a lot down for the 15 markers on gender equality/sustainability/conservative nationalism.

    I only need a C this year to get an A overall, so hopefully I've managed it. For the feminism 15 marker, I said that radical feminists believed that 'gender' was a myth so therefore gender inequality would never work. Then I spoke about difference feminists who think that aiming for equality with men amounts to being male-identified, and women should instead aim to seek fulfillment as women.

    For the 45 marker, I'm actually kind of worried. I did write a lot but didn't mention socialist feminism, which I should have, but focused mainly on the differences between liberal feminism and radical feminism (liberals don't agree that the personal is the political, radicals do). Then towards the end I started realising I should probably talk about how feminism as a whole is defined by other things than that belief, and shoved in a paragraph about third-wave feminism and how they reject all-encompassing views, because they're influenced by postmodernism. So yeah, I just really hope I managed to get an A/B in this and a D in 3B so I can get a C overall at A2 to get my A!
