I have just attempted to do the 2007 DME exercise but could not do it. I did not know what to write as I am unsure as to what the ESA is. Should this not normally be explained in the DME itself or am I missing something?
In addition, the questions gave me 3 arguments to oppose the proposal and 2 to support it. I have always wrote to support the proposal so do I need to adapt what I am doing?

Hi, as you can tell I'm not a teacher but a student much like yourself. The whole point of the DME is to synthesise between the sources and use relevant Background Knowledge that relates to the topic in hand and sources in order to get a valid argument. Besides you aren't really meant to know what the DME is about but you should be able to pull relevant background knowledge out of it... Does that help you a bit?
P.s Whenever I'm faced with a DME I put myself in the role they give you, for example a Social Policy Researcher and therefore I ask myself if this proposal is introduced, will it go down well or not? Think about complications and advantages... Its normally best to accept the proposal according to my teacher anyway so I don't know how true that is...
Another thing, what is it your struggling with the most? I can help you as my DMEs normally get 15s

hi thanks for your reply :D
I don't have a problem with DMEs, I am relatively good at them, it is just this one DME that I am having issues with. I would be fine once I know how to work out what the discussed proposal was, that is what is confusing me, thanks
