Hi This is absolutely unrelated to your question, im a year 12 fellow edexcel politics student and im just hugely struggling in terms of essays and revision. I watch politics explained all the time and have decent amount of knowledge as well as my essay skills are really well BUT im still getting marks like 12/30 and i know it sounds very bad bc it is but when you see my writing you would think okay this just needs more evaluation AO3ive spent almost AN ENTIRE YEAR trying to find people who also do politcs be able to be of help and im just hugely struggling, if you are able to help please dm me privately thanks

Hey I don’t think I have access to DMs as a new account, but I did AQA not Edexcel. If it’s anything similar to AQA when giving your AO3 points it’s not like other subjects where you can’t be certain, you can use whatever opinion you like as long as you can back it. For example if you used the example of Poll Tax and you’re very against it, voice that and then use a case study on the effects to properly solidify and back it up. I’m not too sure how Edexcel works, but if it’s similar to AQA that’s all the AO3 advice I can think of, sorry I can’t help more. Good luc

I think the papers overall weren’t horrible but definitely not the easiest. With paper 2 being the worst lol. How did you find it ???

I thought P2 was the best, the 9 markers being so simple and like able to waffle about general subjects was nice. I was dreading P3 because our teacher left just as we started the topics but managed to cram. I think it went okay, probably not my best though

I’m trying to remember what it was about now 🤦🏼*♀️. Out of sight out of mind, I think I found it okay from memory, the extracts are usually my strong suit though. I almost cried happy tears over the “3 functions of congress” 9 marker though

Paper 1 and 3 were amazing, paper 2 9 markers and essays were also amazing but the extract was horrific
