I'm going to skip nationalism and I can't decide from Unit 3 - probably conservatism or socialism. I love Ecologism! I find it easier to remember than the others haha

Ecologism is easily but we haven't even done it properly In lesson. Our teacher isn't the best

Could someone pls send revision notes on Liberalism?? Really struggling to make the concepts detailed. Also any advice on how to get an A in A2 for the political ideologies route?
If you are struggling with concepts, look at either one of these books:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Edexcel-Pol...vel+ideologies

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Edexcel-Gov...vel+ideologies

I use them and they are super simple to use because they just go through key concepts really easily. Hope that helps :^_^:

Wish my teacher picked something other than ideologies. It's not very difficult but I preferred contemporary politics like AS and unit 3/4 A and C

Struggling on this question: "On what grounds have ecologists supported capitalism?"

I've done really good notes for Liberalism, Conservatism, Feminism and Ecologism, nearly finishing Socialism and Nationalism notes.

I've started doing really detailed grid plans for 15 markers for Unit 3 on basically all the past paper questions. Currently, this week I'm going through all unit 4 14 markers and sending my teacher x2 15 markers a day. The more I get through the essay questions the more I can start doing detailed plans and memorising plans.

Checklist I have for 15 markers and 45 markers ( to get the top marks):

  • Key Thinker in every paragraph (A01)
  • Key example in every paragraph (A01)
  • Dates/Facts/Stats/Historical examples (A01)
  • Link A02 to theme (key concept -> theme)
  • Criticism/ difference/ tension within ideology (A02)
  • Critcism/difference/ tension within another ideology (A02)


I'm looking for a politics online revision buddy who i can share my Unit 3 and Unit 4B detailed plans, model answers, my colourful condensed A02 revision notes on each theme in each ideology and someone who I can motivate and give work for and teach ideologies and someone who can do the same for me. Anyone PM me if interested
