Oooh, that's good. I'm hopeful for you. People I heard said they both hated it and it was their worst exam. The wording was confusing or something :confused:

Thought it was fairly awful to be honest. Went into the exam fairly confident and needing an A for uni. Seemed to me that every 15 marker (except the Republican one) was on a fringe bit of the topic.

Eg.
Out of all of elections they picked props and initiatives
Out of all they could have done on affirmative action, minorities, immigration etc. they chose the more abstract: is race an important issue question.
Out of all of PGs they chose a question about professional lobbyists, which really threw me off.

The only ok question was the PGs vs Parties essay, but even that was fairly abstract in asking about "how important" (in doing what!?) they were in US politics. Also, they don't tend to mix topics, so that made a lot of my planning redundant and I ended up rambling. Shame, as I put a lot of work into that one and didn't end up getting down all the stats dates and facts that I had painstakingly learnt.

Clearing for me.

The parties question was interesting - 'to what extent has the obama administration diverted from traditional democrat values and policies' (or to that extent), but in retrospect I think I messed up and answered it all wrong not focusing enough on the historical party ideology. But I've been taught not to look at history - opinions?

Tbh it seems like alot of people feel like they are in a similar position to you, i think the curve for this will be fairly low, plus unit 4 isn't to hard.

What uni are you looking at? You got to remember they will probably be more lenient and such plus you probably did super well in year 12

Basically don't worry :P x

Considering mid terms are this year you could expect congressional elections to come up
Lobbyists I agree wasn't nice though
And propositions is fairly simple

i did the pg 45 marker and did 3 for and 4 against with a total of 7 pages for it! my time management isnt that good so i didnt have much time for the 15 markers but the lobbyist one i basically coppied the points from the 45 marker! i could use the same points in both essays so is that allowed? will the same examiner mark both questions and realise- and potentially deduct marks?
