Citizenship Unit 1 - HOW WAS IT???Watch
The wording of the questions threw me off too! I thought some of the past papers were easier. I wrote about the 2nd essay question (about newspapers) which was okay, I'm just worried I didn't include enough examples in there. I hated the questions about the strike on the train but apart from that I think it went okay. At least the grade boundaries for the past couple of years have been okay. Have you got the unit 3 test on Thursday?
I was thinking that, to be honest I thought rights and responsibilities was going to be the easiest section but I actually found it quite hard! Probably because of the source questions. I really want an A because I got A*s in my controlled assessments so hopefully the examiner is nice. Have you done the controlled assessments yet? I'm doing 3B on Thursday as well, I haven't really revised properly to be honest I'm not sure how, for unit 1 I just done flashcards and past papers, I think I'll print unit 3 past papers off tomorrow. I think unit 3 should be okay, its just the essay questions I'm worried about.
I did edexcel but hated it! I mean it was okaaaay I guess? But not quite sure if I managed to get an A or A* ..The past papers were so much easier compared to this one.. i'll be gutted if i get less than A but kinda expecting it
The questions were pathetic. Basically in section B there are some topics which we already get told. They're worth 20 marks and we have to write stuff about them. I chose about the Civil war in Syria. We get told to learn soo much content and soo much about the war itself, and the questions are hardly related to it! They're on about the UN & G8 & that ****. Also the one markers were not even on the spec! Stil most were pretty easy. Paper was good overall, questions were annoying
I feel the same to be honest! I've got A*s in the controlled assessments so I don't really want a B. Did you notice that as the years have went on they've got harder but the grade boundaries have stayed the same (with the past papers). I hated how they were all worded!
I didnt even revise properly for this exam, felt like I didnt need to for some reason lol.. Thank God nothing too complicated came up.. opened the book 2 hours before the exam and ended up procrastinating -_-... I dont want a B either because its meant to be sucha easy paper to get an A on.. are the grade boundaries low for the past papers? hated the wordings too!!!
hi everyone, i did AQA and didn't really like it as much as I thought I would. Do any of you have the pre-release topics for the Thursday paper please? I wrote them down, but now can't find them anywhere, and I just want to focus on those three areas...time is running out! Thanks everyone.
section B forr thursday paper ive been told to learn about the criminal justice system, so obviously sentancing and courts and stuff. Just learn about that thats what ive done but in section A we will be asked about theme 1,2,3 and 4! Good luck!
the questions were okay but some of the wording was strange and got me confused I think i lost some easy marks but whatever happens, happens. The essay questions were so easy all 3 of them, but I selected the first essay question as I thought there was so much you can write about, wb you guys?
The wording was so stupid and the questions were pathetic.
I swear even if i revised properly then i wouldnt hve done good.
Lets just say im glad that i got A for my 60% coursework.
Anyone doing edexcel Option 3C on the 19th this Thursday?
Omg, yeah the wording was so strange I had to re-read it like 3 times just to understand it better. I also chose the first essay question. I wrote about the employment tribunal. what did you include in the essay question?
