Guys I can't find anyone who is sitting the 3A and 4A paper? I have no idea what might come up on this years paper and I'm finding it hard to revise as there is so much! Anyone got any predictions or advice?

Unit 3A is definitely hard to predict. It's all about current issues so I'm guessing-

Difficulty to reduce budget deficit (15)
Controversy surrounding fracking (15)
Potentially wind (15)
Changes to pensions(15)
Reasons for increase in prison population.

45 MQ on:
privatisation of the NHS
Economic Policy since 2010 successful or not?
to what extent have civil liberties being eroded?

Do you think changes to pensions will be reforms by the conservative/lib dem coalition?

I don't think it will be coalition as the coalition is extinct now. Maybe what they proposed in the manifesto. It was the question in 2011 I think so could reappear.

Are you doing unit 4A? If so do you have any predictions? Most seem to think there will be a 45 marker on for and against leaving the EU but is that too predictable?

Yes doing 4A. I thought exactly the same especially because it's referendum year. Be a dream question. I think something on Lisbon treaty or European Parliament. 4A is well more predictable than 3A.

A question on the EU parliament would be great! By the way, what would you include on a question about fracking?

Looking at the past exam questions. I think it would be arguments in favour and against. Or, it would be why it is controversial. The arguments for and against would be economic v environmental. Reasons for controversy- earthquakes, industrialisation of the countryside and water contamination. I'm doing GEO4B so helps that my pre-release is on fracking.

Thanks much appreciated. Be great if taxation policies differences came up. It's not been up since 2010 I think.

I reckon I'm confident on 3- fracking, prison population and pensions. There surely has to be an economics success/failure evaluation since the coalition government has expired.

They would be great questions! I agree, I think that would be a good question to answer in terms of structure compared to the others!

It may ask you why pensions is a major issue in politics or explain the impacts of the pensions timebomb.

Basically why pensions has become a problem. Ageing population, unsustainability of the state pension.

Also doing 3A and 4A. Agree with suggestions for 3A, particularly pensions short q., although according to a friend, he reckons that environment and law & order always come up in short Q.

As for 4A, yep teacher thinks European Parliament long question, and/or specifically related to democratic deficit. Doubt Lisbon will be there directly, as it came up last year. Based on the migrant/refugee crisis back in September last year, teacher also thinks Schengen/free movement of workers short Q might come up. Personally, have a sneaky feeling about European Court of Justice as it hasn't been there for a while, and Common fisheries policy short q. as no question on that since reforms in 2013.

Law and order and environment will be short questions. I think fracking and/or wind for environment and maybe why prison population has increased for law and order.

Civil liberties for the 45 mark essay would be a dream.

Good luck today!
