    I did the SARS one and the religion one, cos I do RE and felt like showing off my religious knowledge. think i spent too long trying to get as many beliefs etc in as I could and not enough time really answering the question... ah well, doesn't really matter anyway

    gs was a piece of p*ss. but then again you can write anything in the essays within reason as long as you link it in.

    the only hard bit was french. my french is a disgrace.

    Well I do a "microbes and disease" module in biology, so I talked about stuff like vaccination and what it does to the immune system, and about antibiotics and why they don't work on viruses.

    Also general stuff like quarantine, hygeine, preventing things like water supply contamination.


    Anyone who did "stereotypes", I think I got a bit carried away! I started going on about the BNP stereotyping immigrants as terrorists in their european election publicity material, then about hitler stereotyping jews, then about americans stereotyping black people in the time before martin luther king, and talking about the flaws in the legal system that it caused...

    (also threw in some stuff about how the media use stereotypes in comedy, thought I'd put in SOMETHING lighthearted...)
