    At national 5, everyone studies different areas. That's why in the exam there 6 sections with different headings. Which topics are you doing?

    In the course you have 3 units
    Democracy in Scotland and the UK

    Social inequalities

    World issues and powers (in your case the USA as a world power)

    The paper will have 2 sections fo each unit and you have to choose 1 section to answer fo each unit. For example section A and B will be democracy in Scotland and the UK. Section A will concern democray in Scotland and B will concern democracy in the UK. Therefore in the exam you may want to choose Democray in the UK.

    Then you will move onto unit two when you choose between section C and section D. You choose between the topics crime and law and social inequalities.

    As the last section you don't have an option as you have only gone over USA as a wold powe theefoe you have to choose the section concening that topic (the USA).
    Each section will consist on 2 KU (knowledge based questions) then one souce question. each section should be 20 maks (I think).

    Dont foget you souce questions, woth alot and dont need to know knowledge anout the couse for: The DMT (10marks)
    Support and oppose (8marks)
    Conclusion question (8marks)
    Hope this helped

    Its not so much statistics you have to learn but any recent example of whatever it is you are answering about in a particular answer. I did national 5 modern studies last year and I found doing practise answers and flashcards really helped me learn my recent examples and use them where I needed to
