About me

Hello, my name is Oliver. I am a first year at the University of Exeter studying Middle East and North African Studies with International Relations. I really enjoyed my A-Levels, and the space it gave me to choose and explore the subjects that I was most interested in. I only aspire help others have the same experience.

I'd like to think that I'm a very easy going person, who loves to share what I know. My flatmates look forward to my 'fun fact of the day', and I leap on the opportunity to tell them what I learnt that day in lectures. 

I am new to mytutor, but I have had plenty of experience exporting my knowledge in interesting ways, at school, but also in university tutorial sessions. I will always aim to condense what I am communicating into the simplest definitions possible, but only once they have been founded on a broader knowledge. Wherever possible I try and summarise in three easy points. That is how I made it through A-Levels to one of the best universities in the UK.

Questions Oliver has answered

Is globalisation a positive or negative development? Critically discuss.

Introduction 

Define globalisation: e.g. "the process of gorwing interdependence and interconnectedness between states, on a political, but more often an economic basis." You will need to include subject specific vocabulary here e.g. actor. In an A-Level politics essay it is also important to allude to your conclusion, but perhaps hold-off until the conclusion to draw everything together. Although this does depend on the essay question. 

< You can arrange this essay either by topic, or by 'postive'/'negative' > 

Globalisation is...:

[...] A negative development

Ideally, aim for three points (corresponding to 2 or more paragraphs - ideally 3) that support the premise of this section - that globalisation is a negative development. 

It also helps, in terms of getting your position across in a clear and academic way, for your first section to support your particular thesis or position. 

The first paragraph should include your strongest argument, not necessarily the one which you agree with, but the one that you can drag-out and provide as much evidential support as you see appropriate.

For example, paragraph: (1) financial inequality and exploitation (loads of relative poverty examples); (2) transfers jobs from 'developed' to 'developing' world; (3) loss of soverignty (corporatisation and diffused authority); 

[...] A negative development

Then the same again. 

For example, paragraph: (1) Higher standards to living (supported by strong statistical evidence); (2) cultural awareness/ the spread and access to ideas/ better ways of doing thins; (3) tackling common and global issues e.g. global warming; 

< Don't be affriad to challenge the points you make within a certain section. PEE(A/L) is a universal constant! This forms your 'critical analysis' referred to in the question. >

Conclusion

State your conclusion in the first sentence if you can. Then briefly summarise your supporting arguments -- why should the reader accept your conclusion?
