    No, any order is fine. I did 4 then 3.

    Missed out an entire 25 marker because I ran out of time. I'm screwed.

    I did the pressure group and democracy questions. I thought the question layout was a tad misleading but overall it was not too bad considering if you revised for it. I managed my time well - a minute per mark. The results come out 9th of March!

    Same questions, time a bit crapper. Can discuss at 4:50 AM (or a normal time!) tomorrow as Edexcel is international.

    No matter how bad your timing was, mine was probably worse. Didn't write anything for a 25 mark question, and only half finished a 10 marker. So 30 marks minimum down the drain

    Yes, the timing was an unexpected *****. I hope you did OK. What is your target grade? In theory you need about 50/80 for an A so you could JUST scrape it.

    Ah right. I'm terrified for it. Don't think we can even speculate on what might be on it as there are several options etc. I am so worried though How are you feeling for it?

    Yeah thanks I'm doing it a year early in Year 11 anyway, so I'm not expecting much. I don't have a proper target grade, don't even have a teacher (self-taught) so I won't be surprised if I get a U

    I'm a bit confused. What topics are you doing?
    Socialism, liberalism, conservatism and anarchism?
    I've never studied regionalism EU and UN apart from the odd basic thing about neo-liberals supporting the European market and neo-conservatives opposing European political integration. Oh no. I'm so confused now. Are there different topics?

    Edit: oh my goodness. sorry, I was being so stupid. I'm doing 3B not D. Apologies for being so thick - my brain is not in gear - not very good for my exam by oh well...

    We do political ideologies and traditions. Sorry.

    I'm dreading Wednesdays exam. I have a bad feeling that the questions are going to try and through us off like the 'destined to sting like a bee and die' question that came up a few years ago.
