National 5 Modern Studies 2017-18Watch this thread
I've seen quite a few modern studies students around in various threads, so thought I'd make a thread for anyone who is studying National 5 Modern Studies this year, to keep everything all in one place
So, if you want to discuss how your assignment went, have any questions about the course, or generally want to stress out about the exam, then this is the place to do it
And if you're looking for any of your other subject threads, you can find a list of them here
Could you please tell me if police and government responses to crime are the same thing
Thank you so much
Just a quick point, the notes that were listed say that the leader of the Conservatives is David Cameron; Theresa May has been P.M since 2016. Furthermore, the Liberal Democrat leader is Sir Vince Cable.
Thought you might find this thread useful
I chose something fairly unusual and chose the Electoral College, risky but I'm happy with what I wrote.
I did my assignment on the hypothesis "The British Public were wrong to vote for Brexit", and think the write up went ok maybe!! Just the exam to go. So stresses about this one as there's just soooo much to remember for the K&U questions!
Someone told me the exam is written in a booklet? Is that true or is it just paper? Thanks
Your questions will appear in a question paper, and you write all your answers in the answer booklet, as the question paper booklet is not marked. A number of other exams also use an answer booklet for candidate responses.
Hope this helps
It’s not just you. Our teacher makes us answer in PEEL paragraphs for every question. In the prelim i finished right as time was up. The source questions are too much with everything else but thankfully i’ve not chosen it next year because you need to write an essay in the exam
Yeah I'm not taking it to Higher either. The course is interesting enough, but I feel like the structure of the exam is testing my ability to write as fast as possible rather than my actual knowledge of the subject. I agree with the source questions; even if they had a separate paper for the source questions similar to how Maths and English do it, because having the different question styles really disrupts my focus lol. Do you think it's worth me doing all KU in one go then move onto all Source questions, or would that be pointless?
I agree on timings it is really difficult for Mods, I find KU essay but the Skills time consuming so I just get through the knowledge, try and pick up some marks usually around 8-9 for conclusions and 7 for the others and then move on to the next section.
