Another Exam (from 1979)
Another blast from the past - an exam paper and just look how out of date is the Elements of Politics examination. Who'd have thought it - a little over ten years later and the Berlin Wall would be down. Such a paper simply cannot appear now, unless it is historical politics. Also included is my reaction to taking that exam, and considering all of them. I was right in so far as I did least well in the Sociology in that first year, because I never really had a clue what it was about and did not understand its reliance on authors as a literate subject. I was most familiar with Economics, although later it was to fall away on the basis that people are not as rational as mathematical equations.
