there's an edexcel politics course on seneca learning which summarises all the content in a really good way. also, on quizlet there'll probably be lots of sets with examples, essay plans etc :biggrin:

Hey, Politics Uni student here. Sat my A Levels last year and when I was revising I found ‘Alanhistorynerd’ YouTube channel SO helpful, especially for ideologies. Seneca is also helpful, alongside revision guides. Reading through the specification helped me as well see what Edexcel are actually looking for in your answers. Planning past questions as well, just so you have case studies for each topic and perhaps some case studies that cross over!! you’ll be absolutely fine 🙂

Wouldn’t be surprised if it was Conservatism + Liberalism, as Socialism and Liberalism came up in last years paper. I would create four essay plans per (focussing on role of state, society, economy and human rationality) I think of those four sub topics it’s more than likely we will get a question on economy and conservatism (hopefully)

I'm focusing all of my revision on conservatism, esp as it hasnt come up in 2 yrs now. Lets hope on the economy becuz the role of state would end me
Hey guys: I think essay questions that are most likely to come up this year for paper 1 are:

Evaluate the view that the major political parties agree more than they disagree over policies

Evaluate the view that the current Conservative Party has moved away from Thatcherism

Evaluate the view that the media has little impact on UK elections

Evaluate the view that manifesto and party policies have little impact on election outcomes

For ideologies:

do not plan questions that has already come up (for example, if there was a Conservatism question on society do not need to specifically plan for that one as they wouldn’t come up again

I reckon Conservatism will be up this year (my hunch is on human nature, the economy, pragmatism or paternalism as these hasn’t come up before)

I also think there would be a liberalism question as socialism has appeared twice in the last 2 years.

Hope this helps!

omg thank you!
Also hi guys about the grade boundaries, will they be going up because from 2022 to 2023 it went up by at least 10 marks to get an A* from an A so would that pattern be the same this year, or only decided once we have all taken the paper and they see how many marks we get collectively to decide?

Hey! No, I don't think they will increase. In 2019, the grade boundaries for an A was 63%, as it was last year. The only reason it was so low in 2022 was because of Covid! The grade boundaries should now stay around the same e.g. 73% for A*, 63% for A, 53% for B etc etc!
