    Wasn't there the example in 2013 where the Education Select Committee told Micheal Gove to slow down on reforms and plans to scrap GCSE which the government responded to going back on it's plans to scrap GCSEs showing the Committee was successful.
    Thanks!

    Such stupid question, but I have to ask (just to be 100%):

    Is the 'executive' and 'executive power' essentially the government and powers of the government? I've seen the term used to describe both the government and the PM in particular.

    Sovereignty came up last year in the 2015 papers as part of the source Qs. But its always good to prepare for it anyway.

    I was just wondering if anybody had a more detailed plan for a cabinet question? Something like 'How significant is the cabinet today?' or 'To what extent does cabinet government operate in the UK?'
    I'm really stuck on these, especially with examples and stuff

    Only good questions can save me
    Just hoping but doubt it

    Still can't believe that democracy Qu
    I don't think they will be that harsh on unit 2 because you really can't select revise unit 2 like you can unit 1
    Yeah but revising three is generally fine. I don't think they'll be harsh or horrible, but exactly as the Unit 1 paper. There will be a couple of nice questions, and one difficult one.

    Don't stress out now vine, won't help. You'll be fine

    I think Constitution and Parliament will both be 40 markers this year, which would be a surprise for most I imagine
