I've popped this into the government and politics section for you as you are more likely to get some help there

Are you doing edexcel? For edexcel we learn four ideologies for each unit and technically you could get away with revising three units but then you have to answer a question on each of them, so I guess it depends how confident you are with the three you choose.
Structure is the same for both papers. There is a choice of 5 x 15 markers of which you have to answer 3 and a choice of a few (I'm not sure how many exactly) 45 markers of which you have to answer 1. So for each paper you have an hour and a half to answer 3 x 15 markers (so spend like 10-15 minutes on each) and 1 45 marker. So paper 3b is conservatism, liberalism, socialism and anarchism. 4b is feminism, nationalism, multiculturalism and ecologism. Hope this helps

You don't have to do four, theoretically, but if you only revise three you might be at a loss when the ideologies you revised have the hard questions turning up. It will mean lack of choice with the 15 markers because if say, for example, you don't revise x ideology but 2/5 questions are x ideology you won't be able to do them - you'll have to do the other three even if something comes up that particularly stumps you! If you have full knowledge and are 100% confident then it might be possible but that is really up to you to decide.

Yeah I'm pretty much in the same position, as is everyone I speak to! But my best tip would be to familiarise yourself with the exam question terminology then consolidate your notes to reflect this. This will probably work because the questions seem to all be set in a template of sorts? :afraid:

Are there any particular questions/topics you're struggling with?
Spoiler:
Show
What are you aiming for? I need an A at least, preferably. It is very very hard though...

I've done Liberalism and Anarchism, currently doing Conservatism. I think it will take a while to cover all the traditions though. I quite like Liberalism, a 45 marker and 15 markers on liberalism would make me very happy! Are you at the stage of revising in class now?

Revising in class at the moment. I must say I am incredibly tempted to skip socialism (I can't though, I am too scared in case something else trips me up), it is a very confusing ideology and the traditions elude me.
Are you going to uni, if so what for?

Well I try to plan answers out from memory then I use my notes to check whether I've got it right, then build it up using my notes.

Hey guys!!! I'm doing this exam and super stressed. I'm halfway through revision, but not yet completed. I revise 1/2 tops from every ideology a day I'm focusing on liberalism, anarchism and conservatism- hoping on a nice 45 marker on anarchism or conservatism.

I revise from notes! So I don't know the whole content fully. So I do unit 3 revision one day then the next unit 4; because the exams are 2 days apart. I'm gonna finish revising from my notes and do all the pp questions!
