    Is there an electronic version of the pre-release material for AQA General Studies 6 (tomorrow) anywhere?

    If not is the information on it imporant? Is it worth me going to school early to look at it?

    Cheers.

    I've got one, sorry it's a few too many pages to scan in for you. If you have a reasonable knowledge of the arguments for and against the European Union and the stance of a few political parties, I wouldn't bother. The articles are mainly fairly vague, but there is quite a lot of it, maybe too much to read in the exam. There are a couple of pages of facts and figures and the beginning, but I don't think there's anything too complex to understand on the day.

    Good luck

    Whilst we're on the subject, do you know the the ECU, I think it means European Currency Unit, but I don't think it means the Euro is? It's the unit that the contribution to EU budget is measured in in the first table.

    it was originally an accounting unit for the community's internal budget before the euro was introduced. i wasnt aware it was still in use as i thought it was replaced by the euro.

    Thanks, I just found that too.

    Also, I just found out that the 2001 Weights and measures regulations will make it a criminal offence to mention imperial measurements in trade, public saftey, public health and admin purposes! How absurd... wow the things general studies is teaching me!

    I've lost my pre-release! I remember something about the contributions given and the GDP of each country in the EU, but that's about it.
