EDIT: I'm not resitting, did Int2 last year

Not started that yet (politics of food). Looking forward to it though, sounds good. We are doing the USA at the moment. It's interesting in most parts but prefered the Scottish Parliament section.

I love it. I did it for SG last year and really enjoyed it, though you do end up getting a very sore wrist after writing so much! ^^

I'm totally loving Modern Studies this year! I'm just out of Standard Grade (I got a 1 for it biggrin.gif). I'm doing Higher this year and just think every aspect of the subject is fascinating (Apart from Voting Systems! Lol).. Just now we're doing Health Care, and I'm liking it. We're finished doing Voting Behaviour etc.. and are going onto South Africa soon biggrin.gif, which should be great! I'm looking forward to Politics of Food too. I'm enjoying the essays and find it a well-structured course, although I'm finding it difficult learning all the different Reports, e.g. The Black Report, The Beveridge Report and so on..

This years SG exams were so easy compared to the past papers. Especially Busi Man and Mod Studs.

I got a 1 for SG Mod Studs and I am finding higher quite easy to be honest.

It is so much easier than English and History. The essays are easier to write and you don't need the depth or analysis of History and English.

Yeah, but it's just so much easier than having to learns quotes and historical opinion for History.
