how many essay plans do you make for each topic?

honestly just as many as possible. but on average for idologies i make around 7/8 and for uk govt and politics i make around 30. my teacher made my class a checklist so i mostly use that and just go through them, but you can just go through past papers and plan them. i've been told questions are likely to repeat but differently phrased. its time consuming but it works wonders and you can find ready essay plans on quizlet.

would it be more efficient to plan essay questions that have came up (because they don’t repeat the same exact question especially for ideologies) or plan a question that has not came up? i am currently using alevelpolitics.com is book to create essay plans that have not came up idk if this is helpful

They tend to repeat questions but phrase them in different ways, especially for ideologies. You just have to alter your essay plans in a way that fits the questions but the content stays the same.

And I personally dont revise for them, I just use my essay plans and apply them to points in the source

I don't use the mark scheme as it's not comprehensive enough, I'd rather assemble the plans using my own notes. But definitely try to plan as many questions as you can, focusing on your weak topics that you'd have no clue what to write for if they came up.
