    Thanks kind of

    It seems with parliament you have to look at other areas besides s particular section
    Yeah for sure if it says parliament it refers to both chambers, in some ways it's good as you're not limited to just one but in some ways you have to make sure you include stuff from both chambers

    How many topics are people revising fully for unit 2?
    I think I'm just going to focus on 3. PM & Cabinet, Parliament and the Constitution. I might gloss over Judiciary if I have time, but I doubt I'd be able to do all 4 in such a short time.

    I really struggle with unit 2 and after the first exam it's made me worry even more haha!

    Yeah I hate the judiciary topic because it's just ugh, I should probably look over it. But I'm not sure if I'm going to have enough time to cover 3 eeek Never leaving it to the last minute again

    We haven't done any of Unit 2 in lessons, so I'm going to aim to teach myself two of the topics. Probably Parliament and Constitution

    Lessons are split between two teachers, one has been on sick leave since December with no cover teacher and the other really doesn't have any clue about the course. I just wish I'd realised sooner how much we hadn't been taught, rather than just accepting when we were told we were finished.
    I've also got to revise for my Mechanics exam tomorrow, so it's a little tight..
