    Nope the UK does not have an entrenched constitution which means it can be amended like ordinary law through a simple Act of Parliament
    Thank you!

    thank you! I've done plans and notes for Constitution and Parliament but I haven't touched PM&Cabinet. Should I just plan questions for that topic??
    Yes
    But don't stay up all night and revise
    You'll just add pressure and may forget things
    I know it's all hindsight but sometimes you do better when your less prepared lol
    That happened to me last year
    Just hope for good questions

    Ahhh, so The Terrorist-Asset freezing act was passed AFTER the ruling- thank you so much!
    Yes! And I think that might answer one of your previous questions about wanting an example where the judges were ineffective in protecting civil liberties. This is one. Bear in mind that Parliament will often pass a remedial order or new piece of legislation after a declaration of incompatibility in order to do what it wants to do. That's the sovereignty of Parliament!

    I have just been revising PM and Cabinet and I have noticed that I have less examples than other topics.. Is this okay? Is it more about AO1 ? If it comes up it is more likely to be a source Q because that would make more sense tbh?

    4-5 points at least that are all explained and evaluated with examples

    I'm still making notes now do you think its possible to go through things and consolidate my knowledge tomorrow morning? I plan to wake up at 5 and work until I have to leave home. Am i being too unrealistic?
    I still have a lot of it to go through myself, except I'm pulling an all nighter then sleeping before I go in.

    Silly me for not starting sooner.

    Just start memorising stuff instead of writing up notes.

    My plan is to get everything memorised by 1am, and examples memorised by 4 and then look at mark schemes till 6, then sleep. Wake up at 11, go over things quickly, shower then leave.

    And pray to the heavens of course!

    I should be so much more prepared for this.

    Best of luck on your all nighter! You have the strength whilst I intend to wake up at 5 and spend two to two and a half hours on each topic before I have to get ready and leave by 12:40 looool I should've been so much more prepared for this as well :') I'm sure it'll work out okay for us though x its my last exam so I'm just counting the hours down until this hell is over

    Celebratory nuggets are needed. On the other hand, I am going to do something far less exciting and get my brows done because they've turned into fuzzy caterpillars and I need them to be fleeky AF then buy a nandos and watch game of thrones
