I dont think i wrote the best points but i wrote about
Superpower: How they are aggressive (offensive realism) so they dominate then - evaluation: they are more of a great power rather than super power due to this
Superpower: Military capability- 20% of GDP spend on military- increase of hard power and are mobile through the idea of nuclear capability
Not a superpower: Increase of soft power in global politics - More cooperation making their tactics redundant

Yeah, mentioned a lot of political theorists. I’m worried about the 15 markers tho
What did you write in an average paragraph- i think i struggled to analyse and use real world examples

What did you guys write for the realism and liberalism essay? I found the exam really hard. I just mentioned globalisation, state sovereignty and view on war but don’t know if it was right at all. I had good knowledge of it but didn’t really know how to link to the question.

Yeah looks good there was stuff like:
Neoliberal view- nye + keohane, complex interdependance, cooperation - institutions + g/e/p globalisation- liberal democratic peace thesis - kant, fukayama and dyle
Classical realist view- human nature- states act within self interest- machievelli and hobbes - us french treaty- us raising tarriffs on steel
Neorealist view- waltz + mearcheimer - global anarchy- states build up military (north korea vs usa + iran vs iraq) and they are aggressive (russia- ukraine)
then a short para on classic liberal- idealism- lock and kant- rational actors

Yeah, Russia as a superpower was a joke, but seemed to have a lot of info on it anyway regarding US decline in power, multipolar world order etc. I did the UN structure undermines it effectiveness 45 marker

What did people do for the multipolarity unipolarity question? And i'm quite annoyed i thought China was sure to come up
For the mulipolarity and unipolarity question and how they differ, my three paragraphs were:
- how they differ on military e.g multipolarity loads of states similar level vs uni one state with dominant military power eg usa
- how they differ on economies e.g multi no one dominant actor vs uni one state who has a chief role
- how they differ on structural power e.g multi they are all similar vs uni controls the organisations e.g usa and bretton woods
