Well i have mixed feelings about modern studies. I crashed it this year and basically we've had 6 teachers and finally got a proper teacher in january blah blah blah lol. Essay paper - 2 good essays and 2 ok/bad essays lmao so mehh.

A1 Local government essay was awful sad.gif I saw the decision making in the central gov one was easy this year as well wish my school did that!
A4 social class and voting behavious = GOOD smile.gif
2-hmmm i did the gender and race inequalities. this went VERY well. It was in my nab and prelim and i got 12/15 and 13/15 in those so hopefully that will turn out okay
4-South Africa- horrible question- far too narrow tbh.


DME = BRILLIANT biggrin.gif I was very knowledgeable on tht topic so had lots of BK and for the question those were simple. Hopefully 23-25/30 (yn)


So what did everyone else think? Hopefully managed a B smile.gif

Yeah ive got mixed feelings 2!

I did 1B on pressure groups which went quite well the 1D on social class which was okay but hard 2 squeeze 15 marks out of. I did the gender/ethnic inequalities too although i had never done that before and just ended up babbling about all the new legislation. I then did 1D on USA which went okay i suppose.

I didn't really like the DME as I found i was repeating myself a lot. I think i probably managed to get 20 ish marks. Although at the end i was questioning whether it would have been easier to reject! What did everyone else choose?

Owell its all over with now
Hoping ive got a B! laugh.gif

I also went for the DME as I summed it up and had loads of sources and arguments for and very little against. I thought the DME was pretty good and I managed to get a lot of background knowledge in so hopefully done okay.

Yeh I found the essay questions quite good, and just before we went in I basically had said I would have liked all the questions I got lol. Central Gov one was good and I liked it, same with voting behaviour. Health and wealth was alright but I gave it a good shot hehe, and USA was quite good as well.

I was last one in both exams lol... Hopefully done not bad though =)
