long story short- stuck with essays and how to study plz help x
You're not dumb at all, passing N5 is still a great achievement in and of itself.
Regarding analysis and evaluation - this is just a sentence or two after your Point, Explanation, Example which talks about the importance of that point in comparison with other factors and answers the question.
For example, in the democracy in the UK section, there could be a question like "Analyse the influence of the media on voting behaviour". You'd want to talk about the various types of media and the strength of influence they have on the electorate. So say you did a paragraph about the influence of social media, you'd make your point and back it up with statistics and then say to what extent it influences people to vote in a certain way, such as that the ability for millions of people to immediately see the tweets of politicians means that it influences voters significantly. However, you'd also want to talk about why it's less of an influence on some people - such as the older generation, who often don't have twitter or facebook. Instead, newspapers and television generally influence them more.
With regards to studying - I like to use the Quizlet app (online flashcards) to remember stats and just even flick through the BBC News app for revision - sometimes stats from articles stick.
I hope this helps, sorry if I've not been that clear.
