    I have mine Monday too. For the essay questions I have made mind maps of all the individual topics e.g. multicultrualism with examples, positives, negatives, concepts, points of view and case studies all included. Pretty much all the things you need to get 12 marks. If you learn everything on there then you'll ace the 12 markers. For the 1 mark defiintions I have written them all on revision cards and got people to test me. The best way to learn them is to just keep getting tested. You could have a go at some past papers but try the earlier papers like 2012 as my teacher said AQA mostly recycle questions to use on new papers and as 2012 was four years ago it's most likely the questions will be similar. You will have to try and find the paper online though as AQA have taken them off other than 2015-2013. Hope this helps and good luck!

    Point: Either for or against the statement
    Explanation: Expand on your argument
    Evidence: Give stattistics or fats about your point
    Evaluation: Give a counter view but then link it with your original point back to the question
