Personally, I'm a little stumped as to what kind of revision technique I should employ for this subject other than creating essay plans.
I am practicing a 20 mark essay for causes of social inequality but I'm not sure what factors to use. Are zero hour contracts, child poverty, poor working families and welfare cuts good factors and if not what would you use?
Thanks in advance.
I think for democracy it will be voting behaviour, scrutiny or voting systems as they seem to always have at least one of them as a choice. Maybe media or pressure groups too?
For crime, I hope it’s something on courts because that’d be really nice! I think world powers will be powers of the executive, relationships between branches of government or the inequalities.
I’m feeling the same way but I’m trying not to panic - just try and cover what questions seem to come up regularly as they’re likely to be at least one of the essays. Mods is a big course and there’s lots to cover but try and break it down into chunks and just get some basic essays learned with lots of examples. Good luck, you’ll do just fine!
importance of social class/media/age/gender or ethnicity on voting behaviour
To what extent are some factors more important
Evaluate the effectiveness of parliamentary representivtives
Analyse Legislative Powers of parliament
To what extent does the commitie system hold government to account
Unelected bodies can influence decision making in parliament.
Discuss Impact media has on decision making
Impact of pressure groups on decision making
Discuss different views about U.K. Membership of the European Union.
This is everything that can come up on Democracy
For UK- voting behaviour and citizens influence on government
For Crime- impact of crime, causes of crime and prisons
For US- checks and balances, international influence and responses to inequalities
Hi this is sort of important. What is the chance of voting systems being in the exam because my teacher has decided not to teach us that part of the course because it won't come up but I am stressed out incase it does and the other question is rubbish. Please help, Should I prepare an essay myself or what should I do??
I only have a few days till my exams and I do not want to write out all my essays out, could anyone suggest any ideas how i could be able to do this.
World issue: Africa
Social Inequalities in the UK and Scotland
and wrote the general possible essays that may come up for each topic.
Democracy: 6 essays
Social Inequality: 4 essays
Africa: 3 essays
and for each essay I made a spider diagram and have listed K A E (knowledge, analysis, evaluation) and included a statistic, and just basic abbreviations which I can extend in the exam. If you keep what you know broad it’s very easy to write as you go on the exam day with just common sense (that’s how I get analysis marks).
I hope this makes sense I’m really bad at explaining things :-)
