    I've noticed that there's a thread for every exam other than this one, so I thought I'd create one.

    How's your revision going?

    We haven't finished learning the content for 4D yet (skipping the last unit and we're still behind) and making revision notes for 3D is taking me so long

    This unit is taught so badly and it makes it even worse that there are hardly any books on it, apart from the undergrad book. We've finished all the topics, but revising 3/4 is becoming strenuous

    At least you've finished did you learn all eight topics?
    The undergrad book has so much detail I never know what to add or keep in I'm just going through the spec and making notes, I'm missing out some of the stuff that came up last year though (shame, that globalisation 45marker was a Godsend), how're you revising?

    Yeah, we've learnt all 8 topics.

    Revision is going horribly. Is it just me or is there way too much content to learn? I honestly feel so lost.

    LOL, so bad. When I have notes I can get 40/45, but without I can't even scrape an E.

    Hi, do you have any predictions for unit 3D and 4D?

    I am thinking a UN question certainly for either the 3D 15 or 45 marker. I have a hunch they are going to ask about the effectiveness of the UN. The UN is the key global institution the examiners want you to know about, and it wasn't in last year's paper. Possibly something on Realism and polarity too. Given the context of the EU referendum, maybe an EU controversy question as the exam board likes to be up to date on issues.

    For 4D, I think there will be a clash of civilisations question for the 45 marker, given the issues around ISIS this year. This is a popular topic which wasn't on last year's paper. Perhaps also a poverty and development 45 marker

    I also think the rise of China/USA decline will surface for 3D's 45m - that's what my teacher keeps trying to shove down our throats anyway.

    I agree, I think a superpower/hegemony China/USA question is straight forward. All you have to do is evaluate their structural/military/economic strengths and weaknesses

    Ah cool, what are you methods for revising because I honestly feel like I'm going to get a B at this rate. And, UCL, you?

    I have just done pages and pages of essay plans, started just before easter holidays. I find that notes for this subject are too detailed to revise! UCL, nice! I have an offer for LSE to do Social Policy & Politics
