    Obviously you don't need to know about all of policies in the manifestos just choose a couple from each one and the table explains the consensus and adversarial politics over particular issues

    so i'd note things like

    AMS is a hybrid system which produces a multi-party system due to the fact the regional voting part makes the system more roughly proportional to votes. Due to the differential topup, smaller parties which may be disadvantaged by FPTP part and the Winner's Bonus, are advantaged and vice versa. For example, in the 2016 local scottish elections, the Tories who are usually unpopular in Scotland won 31 seats all together, from a differential top up of 21 seats from their 7 constituency seats. Likewise, due to the fact SNP won 63 seats, missing out on a majority due to their successes in the constituency part, so only got a differential top up of 4 regional seats.
    Wait are the SNP in a coalition since they don't have a majority?

    No, they decided to run the Scottish Parliament as a minority as they were only 4 short

    Ahaha so instead of actually revising I've been procrastinating by predicting what may come up. Say if any of you agree with them.(I'm not revising elections so haven't included that). These are my predictions for the 25 markers

    Pressure Groups
    - Their importance/how powerful they are
    - Pressure groups and political participation

    Democracy
    - Direct democracy (with the focus on referendums)
    - Political Participation

    Political Parties
    - Labour Party and tradition
    - Conservative Party and tradition (One Nation/Thactherism)
    - Coalition government and how faithful the parties remained to their ideologies


    Saw that some people haven't seen it and can't find it so here it is

    For ur 5 markers -

    I would go into more detail about functional representation - the fact it is representation of specific issues people have - for example, AGE UK employs solicitors to protect their members (the elderly) when they have been legally abused. I would defintely go into more detail on your five marker. As in explain who Trade Unions and Student Unions (even though its obvious you really need to spell it out. As in 'Student Unions which represent the interests of students in the UK and ensuring they have a platform to be represented to the government.'

    Likewise, with your 10 marker, I would go into more detail. Literally explain everything you say and the examples you give - the bit about the Countryside Alliance is explained well. I would go into a bit more detail about ur points - as in you could quickly note how powerful groups are usually insider - and you could link that to elitism briefly. But generally your 10 marker seems clear and really good. Try and not use brackets and put in rather, 'evidence of the political theory of tyranny of the majority'.

    Your 25 marker is really good. I personally would use less examples and explain them in more detail in relation to the question but they are really good examples and generally great detail I think! I would tend to use 1 or 2 examples of each point but only if I can explain them really well and link it to my point and the question.

    Hope that helped a bit!
    Thank you!!! That helped alot, especially the examples! But with the 5 marker, I was told there are no A02 marking points, only A01 points so describing examples in detail isnt necessary??

    For Unit 1, it was as low as 42/80 for an A in January 2009 and 49/80 in june 2010! Unbelievable!

    You're right, but make sure you explain your examples in term of the question - you don't need to go into too much detail though. But make sure you're points are fully explained

    Yeah, as years go on the grade boundaries get higher since everyone done past papers. This year will probably be a bit higher unless they put out a terrible paper like they did with Econ 😰

    Thank you, you've been so helpful over the past few days. Just a quick note though, now COrbyn is in charge, he is against trident. Might be worth slipping that in

    So true! Also fun fact - during the 2009 MP expenses scandal, they found he was the MP that had claimed the least amount of money out of everyone - no matter where you stand on his policies and leadership type he seems like such a genuine politician!

    I can't agree more he really is compared to some of the other dodgy politicians out there!! He might be on the older side but he seems like a nice fella, I have him on snapchat even that makes him seem like a politician that can actually function around normal people!
