    Do you reckon the impact of pr is practically like asking about the outcomes of the systems just without mentioning the majoritarian systems?

    To an extent. You would talk about it in general then give a system as an example whereas outcomes would be the system outcomes as the point not the example
    Oh yeah I get whatcha mean, it makes more sense using it as the example as it doesn't specifically say electoral system outcomes, thank you ☺️

    If there is to what extent is there a participation crisis is the 25 marker...what points do you make?

    Political party membership fallings
    Election turnout falling since '97
    I can't think of a third

    Pressure groups have eclipsed parties
    Corbyn becoming in charge meant 200k new members joined
    Elections have been going up recently - 2015 was highest since 97
    Please help

    I feel like unit 2 will be a mess. now that ive gone over unit 1 this weekend i think i can do well. In my opinion politics isnt a subject people can just revise (Theres several people who arent that smart in my sixth form but revise loads and do very well) you have to have not just a good knowledge but also a practical mind. One of the things that annoys me is for instance someone in our class at the start of the year didnt know what labour was. some people dont know some really basic flags etc etc. Thats what im good at, having prehand knowledge rather than revising which i dont do a lot

    What I would do is look at the essay questions at the start of the exam and while you're answering the smaller questions get a plan ready in your head...I know it's multi tasking but I really don't think there's any other way to do it

    Yeah I agree it is useful having the previous knowledge, I probably wouldn't enjoy it much if my family knew a lot about politics and are involved unlike some people who don't vote, you're right there's not really a way to revise it you've just gotta keep up to date with what's happening and read the papers (which I don't do but whatever😂)
    Unit 2 might not not be as bad as you think! Remember there's 3 days to revise for that one

    plan now while you still have time ? if you're doing 2 units, chances are one of the questions you planned or something similar come up

    nah but its just sort of condescending to criticse others for not knowing what the labour party is without learning it, then talking about not doing revision yourself

    Just did this question, thought it was a tough one too actually

    I did

    There is a crisis:
    - Low turnouts, even in referendums such as 2011s AV
    - Low party membership, I expanded this by saying that it can be attributed to a very widespread trend of a decrease of public trust in politicians in general, and a lack of identification with party politics causes people to become apathetic in politics

    There is not a crisis:
    - 2001 had a 59% turnout, but the 2015 and 2011 elections had around a 65% turnout, showing a positive trend. Scots referendum had 84% turnout or something. Turnout does not directly affect participation since there are many ways of participating, pressure groups etc
    - A lack of interest in mainstream parties mean that pressure group membership increases. Also is good for smaller parties, Ukip had 3.8 mil votes from voters frustrated about immigration

    Conclusion:
    - There is not a crisis. It is more the case of an electorate becoming dissatisfied with mainstream politics, and choosing to participate through means such as pressure groups instead.
    - Also made mention of methods of potential reform. E.g mandatory voting, 16-17 y/o voting. Etc. (unsure if this should be a separate, non conclusion paragraph??)

    no for ****s sake - people who are starting a course arent expected to know things? its great if they do but thats what the course is for. whatever, I don't know how you're not grasping what im trying to tell you
