    I am using the Hodder education revision guide and Bennett textbook. Do you think memorising the revision guide would be enough?

    Do ideologies, it is so much more interesting. If I could I would swap unit 4C which I am doing for 4B. It would make more sense too as I am studying ideologies in unit 3.

    I did ideologies last year
    Unit 3 ideologies is not bad but didn't like unit 4 at all. Very boring and horrible unit.

    I heard America was easier than ideologies because it's similar to what we did in AS but it seems people who do the American unit dislike it lol?
    How come your doing different topics for unit 3 and 4? Can you do that lol?

    They're both hard but personally I find the US harder because its so boring. I get 40/45 in ideologies but only on average 32/45 In 4C on the essay questions. Up to you I suppose. 😊
