    I LOVED the pressure groups questions! The 25 marker was such a God-send as I had written an essay on it that my teacher gave me 23/25 for so I wrote a plan on it the night before and had examples and everything! I finished 10 minutes early, probably thanks to that extra prep for that question as I literally just regurgitated my plan!

    The democracy question however... I died inside for like 5 minutes.

    They might lower the grade boundaries as lots of people picked democracy. Hmm, Democracy and pressure groups/or elections is the common trend.

    That it's a reform as power is now distributed..you could argue we're a unity state or federal state as power has now been distributed to the devolved nations but then again you can still say unity state as parliament is still the sovereign body and can retract those powers whenever it wants

    That's a good idea, I tend to ramble on a lot so I might just post paragraph titles and the counter + little examples lol

    Don't forget the 'west lothian question' my teacher is addicted to that
    Also problems with devolution such as SOS for NI taking control during 2001

    Ahhh yes that question I completely forgot, and other problems could be that handing them too much power and then not giving them more will make the devolved nations want to leave the uk so they have full control of their region which could lead to the break down of he United Kingdom- a classic problem

    When choosing which topics to revise for Unit 1 I had no troubles in immediately dropping elections!! I am terrible at remembering all the different systems I get so muddled with numbers and stats and honestly.... the D'hondt formula???? Like goodbye lol

    Too right the evil buggers! Seeing as they likely clocked us on our selective revision for unit 1, they might well stick constitution and parliament in the same section to jack us all up! Can't risk it lol
