How did you find the two papers. Personally I found government very easy and politics like a bit awkward!(Original post by SparkleOwl)
I've not found an official OCR thread for this years F851 and F852 exams; if there is one please let me know.
I'm retaking this years AS exams as last year I did awfully and annoyingly I can't remember any of the questions.
The exam structure for F851 goes:
Choose one -
.Electoral Systems and Referendums
.UK Parliamentary Elections
.Voting Behaviour in the UK
The exam structure for F852 goes:
Choose one -
I've personally decided on learning the compulsory sections (obviously), as well as:
parliamentary elections, voting behaviour, the constitution and the judiciary.
I really don't like the other two and I'm willing to take a 50/50 on both exams.
Does anyone have any predictions for what may come up this year or any advice on how to answer questions in this exam? I don't feel very prepared for it.

F851, from what I remember:
- asses the advantages and disadvantages of FPTP (30)
- Pressure groups good or bad for democracy (30)
- role of cabinet (12 marker)
- explain labours changes to the constitution in 2005 (30 marker)
Sorry I can't remember the parties questions for F851, or the Parliament/Executive 30 markers from 852! Did you do the exam today?
