I'm doing democracy in Scotland and the United Kingdom, crime and law and the USA as a world power.
I think voting behaviour will come up for the democracy in Scotland and the UK as voting systems have came up the past two years but idk 😕

I'm doing the new Higher and am doing USA, Health and wealth inequalities and Democracy in Scotland. The section which is worrying me is the democracy one because the questions can be so broad and I am worried something will come up which I have not been taught! Is anyone else feeling like this?

Yes, and local government conflict with Scot gov, how the HOC can scrutinise the Executive, the different electoral systems and how citizens can participate in politics. Is that enough to cover for democracy or? What have you all covered for the USA topic?

We've only done voting systems and voting behaviour for democracy in Scotland...

For the USA we've done checks and balances on government, immigration, inequalities of ethnic minorities and how citizens can participate in the running of their country. You?

That's basically what my class did but I covered the extra stuff because I panicked looking at the specimen papers. I've done all of those topics too actually apart from the participate in running of the country one, what is all in that sort of essay??

Hi guys,
I'm also really worried about the exam as any question could pop up. Do you think that there is very little chance of a voting systems question and instead it will be voting behaviour for the media/social class? Also what are your predictions for the USA topic, China topic and Health and Wealth in UK topic?
Thanks guys!

I think voting behaviour will make an appearance this year because voting systems have turned up the past two years. However, any one of them can turn up so dont just focus on one. For the USA, i think inequalities/american dream, america's influence on the world or oerhaps checks and balances can turn up. Again, i wouldnt focus on just those as I can be completely wrong
