    Just a quick question does anyone know if we need to learn the av system? I completely forgot about it and I've only learnt about fptp, sv, stv, party list system and ams...should I go over it briefly in case they ask a 5 mark question?

    My teacher thinks it won't come up as it was rejected in 2011 but it would be useful to know for contextuality in questions on introducing a new electoral system - but dont think we'd have to describe it.

    It is, but I'm fairly sure that you'll never get a question on it - this sounds flimsy, but I remember reading that somewhere.

    My mistake yeah it is, its used in the party leadership elections and by-elections for House of Lords - i still don't think it will come up though as it was rejected in 2011 - though u could definitely use it for an example in a question on adoption of new systems
