I have a modern studies prelim tomorrow, teacher is a bit of a mongo n hasn’t told us what we need to know. I’m really freaking out because there’s so much he hasn’t even taught us and has left school for a bit so now we get random teachers. Can anyone give me examples of what’s going to be in it so I can do some research please. Thank uu

Nobody asked but I’m gonna say it anyway 😂. Mods essays are more of about structure and repetition, basically say a fact, say a statement about that fact and then say a statement about that statement. (KU > A > E) for a 12 mark essay, repeat at least for times. For a twenty mark essay, repeat five times but have an intro (couple KU and back ground sentences) and a conclusion (a series of small statements summarising your paragraphs / points plus an analysis and then final judgement).

E.g.

One example of a petition is the petition for banning uniform requirements at work reached over one million signatories (KU), this means that petitions are effective as they allow for the public to show strong support for a particular issue (A), HOWEVER, this petition failed to reach debate in parliament as it was deemed unnecessary by the backbench petitions committee thus making petitions an ineffective method of etc (E).

(A really rough example)

Hope this helps!

I'm really far behind in Modern Studies, it being probably my least favourite subject! I don't mind the content, I just find the essays and the repetition extremely draining! I was wondering if anyone has any essays or essay plans from last year that they can give me!! So far I'm doing World Powers - The USA, and inequality within the USA, and Crime and The Law in the UK. Any help would be fab!!!!
:wavey: I've merged this into the main Higher Modern Studies thread- hopefully someone here can help you out

Honestly if you thinking about crashing a social subject I would say history is the easiest one to crash, modern studies for me involves a lot of background knowledge from nat5 and some teachers are not great at explaining things again, I’m currently crashing higher history after doing most social subjects last year and I’m getting better marks in that than in modern studies despite me taking mods last year

THANK YOU for the advice. Despite you saying that its a hard subject to crash I like taking risks and It seems to be something I am interessted in and you never know until you try. Hopefully I will be allowed to crash. I also have lots of friends who take Modern Studies that can help me so hopefully I won't be a lost cause.
Good Luck on your Prelims!!1!
