3B = Ideologies - I'm doing Conservatism and Fascism
4B = Ideologies in action - I'm doing Ethics and Gender, and Education

My teacher has been no help in terms of predicting what might come up, anyone doing these topics have any inclination to what may come up or what has not come up before??

These are as close to predictions as I could get for conservatism (I'm doing conservatism, liberalism and socialism for Unit 3 and something else for 4). The highlighted questions are questions that have been repeated - if a question is highlighted but is only there once that means it came up in 2015, which I didn't include in the list because I wrote this before they released the exam papers. They're listed from 2010-2014, so I think the ones at the top which aren't highlighted may be more likely to come up. Hope this helps in some way!

This are my lists for liberalism and socialism (on a double page spread). They aren't really predictions because they could always ask new questions but it's an indication, I think. Same listing/highlighting system applies to these as I said in the other post (highlighted questions may not be word-for-word but are the same ideas) hope it helps!

Thanks but are you sure these are for AQA? I don't recall there being 15 and 45 mark questions, all the past papers I have done are 10 and 30 mark questions.

well, ethnicity came up last year all by itself, so id highly doubt it coming up in 30 marker again this year without some discussion of feminism/gender.
we actually haven't had a question gender (and form what i can see, only one ever on feminism) for a long time, so maybe this will be the year for that?
the only thing i'm considering for the 30 marker is with the immigration crisis, and everything thats happened, i wouldn't totally be surprised if that poked up either.
but my moneys on a gender question (idk if this was any help sorry)

Thank you, that was helpful (more helpful than my teacher at least), now I have an idea of whats more likely than not to come up although I'll prepare for either circumstance anyway.

Hey guys can anyone help me with this?
I've got this question Explain how liberals perceive equality. However i don't know how to structure it, when i checked the mar scheme it said that in general all liberals believe that humans are natural unequal however my books endnotes suggest that classical liberals actually believe in natural equality,whilst modern liberals encourage equal opportunity and want to reduce social equality, so I'm quite confused how to answer this question although it seems straight forward.

However my book, puts equal opportunity with modern liberals, and natural rights with classical liberals like john locke, so I'm still confused.

1) explain that classic liberals view equality in terms of natural rights, and believe inequality of wealth, social position and political power is inevitable. The negative freedom given to people allowed them to determine whether they'd succeed or not and therefore inequality was justified. Eg Mill believed that those with property rights should be able to vote as they were more successful and better educated
Para 2) explain equality of opportunity and how moderns see it. Reducing social inequality due to the belief that freedom in a capitalist society can lead to less freedom (rawls). Mention TH greens positive liberty and using the state as a vehicle of enhancement and include a policy around that period eg DL George health care reforms
Para 3) talk about the importance of the concept of equality of opportunity in terms of contemporary liberalism with a policy example


Btw this question came up last year and in 2010 so I doubt it'll come up again
