    Yeah, no revising LAs.

    The 2009 question was "asses the impact of devolution on decision making for Scotland."
    The marking instructions say to include the impact of devolved powers and the impact of other features of devolution on decision making for Scotland. What would the "other features" be?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    well the postive impact would be devolved powers, AMS, SP being closer more accessible etcccc AND the negative impact would be no say over reserved powers, finance is by westminster, no say over EU matters etc.

    hope this helps or is right

    Anyone bothering to revise the factors effecting voting behaviour? I mean it has come up in the past two papers... Does that also mean it's unlikely influence of media will come up?

    I really hope so because i'm really just focusing on electoral systems and the presence of a two party system.

    I sat it last year and most people agreed the essay questions were quite simple, powers of the prime minister/ / president (USA), the standard link between health and wealth question, effect of media on voting, gender or race inequality, has the welfare state met its aims...so I think it might be more on the others this year, pressure groups, civil service - my teacher was certain it would come up last year and it didn't so he could be right about it this year.. I would say study the more unique topics and avoid the dead simple ones, don't think powers of the prime minister/ president or the other simple questions will come up, though I could be wrong! Don't know if that was any help haha! good luck everyone! (:

    The question is: Critically examine the view that government, not individuals, should be responsible for health and welfare provision.

    The second response is the one that received full marks.
