Exam Paper Revision

The exam is in three parts. Pay very close attention to specific wording of the questions.

Part 1 is titled “key concepts”. This section of the exam should take no more than 15/20 mins. Answer all questions.

  • You will be asked to define 12 core concepts related to the political economy of inequality.

Part 2 is titled “short responses”. It has three questions. It should take no more than 30 mins. Answer all questions.

  • First, you will be asked to describe the structural transformation of capital over time.
  • Second, you will be asked to describe trends in wealth inequality.
  • Third, you will be asked to describe trends in income inequality.

Part 3 is titled “short essays”. It has two questions. You must both of these questions. This section should take no more than 55/60 mins.

Under absolutely no circumstances should you try and learn-off essays. This is NOT your Leaving Cert. It is a formative exam to assess your analytic reasoning, knowledge and understanding of the course, whilst providing you with an opportunity to showcase your creative and critical thinking skills.

Don’t stress over the exams. Try to enjoy the learning process!
