Wow, that's a lot.
I'm just doing the constitution, political parties, presidency and Supreme Court.
Yeah I'm not doing them in a lot of detail to be honest. There's so little time left and I'm stressing

Anyone do F855 today and think it was horrible? The wording of the questions was so weird compared to the usual way they ask.

That was horrendous. I thought I was super prepared for that exam, but the wording of those questions ruined me

I did the 1st one assuming it was just a voting behaviour question that wanted a comparison between long and short term factors. And the second but it was too much for one question, asking about parties and pressure groups.

I regret my choices. I did the party/pg one and the one on second chambers. I revised pressure groups and the constitution in most detail, but they didn't apply too well to those questions. I should have done the questions on voting behaviour and party systems.

Same! i did party and pg and chambers my structure was basically this
party pg

party leadership in US and UK
membership of parties compared to pressure groups (used israel and germany PG examples)
funding of pg and parties and importance of money in us politics
control PGs have over party


and then for chamers
constitution affects the type of changers, for example a written consitutuon will usually have two legislative chambers in order to adequerly protect the C
seperation of powers is clearer in two legislative chambers, clearer sep of powers in US compared to uk and israel
Israel has success with one chamber
second chaimbers are valuable checking mechanisms
and finally they allow for more representation


i only revised constitution parties and PGs but i think my legislature answer went well because the A* student in my class answered it same well

its just our class has self taught this part because our teacher left the college

Fingers crossed everyone's done well
