    Wouldnt that mean theirs chance they will put those 2 togther this year
    No because they have never done it before
    Also those two topics are the heavier ones hence why they don't appear on the same section

    There's no way of actually telling, maybe if you looked back at all the exam papers and proper analysed it but if they have trends they usually change every 3 years and you never know this year might be the year they change the trend again

    Constitution has came up the last 3 years (JUNE 13, JUNE 14, JUNE 15) so i reckon Parliament will be the data response and the 40 marker will be on the Constitution.

    The last time 3 were repeated in a row (JAN 11, JUNE 11, JAN 12) which was Parliament as a data response the following year (JUNE 12) was Constitution as a data response.

    In conclusion, judging from the past i doubt edexcel will do constitution a 4th year in a row for JUNE 16 as a data response.

    what? no way, how did you come to that conclusion?

    Parliament has so many more examples and waaay more to talk about IMO, whereas Constitution is more content but less examples, statistics, quotes etc.

    either way, constitution is my backup topic and I hope judiciary/parliament are 25/40 markers so I can do both

    I hope the topic about Prime Ministers and Cabinet come up. Seems like the easier of the 4 in my opinion.

    I think I like it because there are lots of examples, and very easy to find. That question is somewhat difficult, was it a 25 or 40 marker? If 25 it's not bad, if 40 I'd run out of things to say I think.

    It will definitely come up, all topics appear in the paper- you just have to choose one topic from section A (source Q) and another topic from section B (40 marks)

    that's actually a nice question lol, would love something like that tbh (the 'assess' made it more difficult imo)

    plenty to talk about, lots of examples.

    Come to think about it, Parliament is actually my favourite topic I think, with Judiciary at a close second. It's just so much more interesting than the others IMO
