DONT COPY FROM THE BOOK!

To hit the top grades and get the extra marks, you need to know the information!! Its alright being able to regurgitate a textbook in an exam word for word but you need to apply this knowledge under the mark scheme. Instead of listing information, use a Point, Evidence and Explanation structure.

Make a point relating to the question and your evidence. State the evidence. Explain how the evidence links to the point and explain as to why it supports or doesn't support question. Then make sure you add a sentence at the end relating it BACK to the question.

My main tips are to watch the news, do exam question after exam question after exam question. Know the information but you need to learn how to apply it. Read the mark scheme and find out what the examiners look for and where you get the marks. Look at some Examiner Reports too which are very beneficial!

Looking at the textbook inputs the knowledge but you need to apply and relate the knowledge to the questions you are being asked.

Hope this helps!

For GOV3A just do all the past papers and learn the answers as they will probably ask something that has already appeared before. Include information from some of the elections, definitely 2016. For GOV4A I would do the past papers but it is a bit harder to predict. If you need any questions answering I'm more than happy to help.
