    Does anyone think a 40 or 25 marker will be on back bench MPs? Just because it has come up in the past

    If it's evaluate their effectiveness then yeah, but I don't think there's enough to make an argument of just one side of what MPs do with the good stuff so it's more likely to come up as an evaluate

    Do you reckon it could come up as front benchers instead of back benchers? Or as there are so many different positions as front benchers it would make it unlikely

    Yep ☺️ but section one has stimulus pieces for 2 units and then the other section is a 40 mark question...learning 2 topics for unit 2 is real ****ing risky as both your topics could come up in the same section

    They don't
    My teacher said parliament and constitution don't appear in the same section because of they are both too indepth to be in the same section

    Unless they decide to change their minds suddenly then yeah but I would stil learn 3

    Yeah true I heard someone say the same thing, but I'm pretty sure as most people do constitution and parliament, you if do a different one youll have a better chance of getting marks easier ...like some students don't actually get taught like the judiciary or don't like the pm and cabinet so in some ways it could be to your advantage

    I'm actually panicking
    My book has so much missing that could be beneficial
    Like now effective backbench MPs are etc....
    I use the 'essentials of U.K. Politics by Andrew Heywood. I feel like there is so much missing
