    pretty safe as long as you're solid on the two you have chosen, i done this last year and got a B in this paper hence why im re-taking but you should be fine
    Thank you! In this case, I will stick to two. Obviously everyone knows democracy; which other topic did you revise?

    Personally, I think that's not a great idea, for all we know, the two topics you have revised could have really hard questions to answer which could knock you off. I'd say revise three
    I actually think the opposite

    There is only so much they can ask tbh. For unit 2 I would say you have to revise all of them

    Two thirds F.P.T.P. and one third regional list.
    I saw on a mark scheme 57% is FPTP, is this definitely correct?

    I've seen around three proportions...

    I'd 100% go by what the mark scheme says though.

    True. If I remember correctly, the system is 60% FPTP and 40% party list, isn't it?
    Nah 56% FPTP

    for 'is britain a liberal democracy'
    would you talk about the democratic elements of the uk such as free and fair elections or would you talk about liberalist principles such as the protection of citizen rights and curbing state power??
    Say free and regular

    Do not say fair because they are not fair and they are against liberal principles....

    The mark scheme says

    In Scotland and London 56% of seats are filled by FPTP; in Wales this is 67%.

    That is direct from Edexcel circa 2009.

    Functional representation is where pressuregroups supplement or add to the democratic process in society.

    For to what extent are we a liberal democracy:

    We are because HR Act & FTPA restrict the power of Parliament -> HR act protects civil liberties, FTPA means elections are free and fair since set date
    Regular elections at multiple levels each contested by several parties

    Not because uncodified constitution, not equal votes and recent electoral fraud questions whether they are free and fair?

    Both Bessie free and fair elections are still part of a liberal democracy features
    I'd also include freedom of media, limitations on government, having a written constitution, clear accountability lines and so on ☺️

    You have to remember the word liberal. It's not just democracy but liberal democracy. Liberalism is all about rights and liberties and gov not being too powerful that they infringe our freedom and rights.

    When you say FPTP say that smaller parties who people vote for are under represented like UKIP and the Greens.
    You can mention no entrenched bill of rights or
    Codified constitution...unelected HOL and head of state.

    also could you say that britain is a liberal democracy as we have a parliamentary government which allows parliament to scrutinise the executive and hence weaken government power?
