    Last year we had a question about PM being a president and both PM and Parliament as 40 markers

    So hopefully this year they are different sections and the question is about Prime Ministerial power and effectiveness of Parliament

    thanks how long generally are your evaulations in realtion to you original point?
    Uhhh I don't know, explanation of the function probably 1/3 of the paragraph and then the rest is evaluating it with examples...it depends how much argument I have for both sides, my paragraphs end up being 1/3 of the page or a bit more

    Continued attempts at Lords reform: Lack of consensus between parties, only 7% on people polled in 2015 stated this was a priority to them.

    Statutory register for lobbyists: trying to make the lobby system more open and democratic.

    elected select committee chairs.

    True but apparently a2 is 3x more work as as level...and if you retake these ones next year you'll have even more to stress about..so it's better to do what you can so hopefully you won't have to retake them next year if you're happy with your result

    I would like Parliament to be a 40 marker tbh. With PM being a 25.

    What I'm saying, really, is that I just don't want to do a constitution question :lol:

    I can confirm this, A2 is so much harder and having to do retakes makes it so much worse.

    They could do for like a 25 marker if its a source based question because you could find enough to talk about. It could also include 2015 agenda such as changes to involvement in Europe, British Bill of rights proposals and changes to Scottish devolved powers and granting more financial and legislative control to the Welsh Assembly.

    Just a quick tip for those who are thinking of doing pm and cabinet!!
    Using these 3/4 theories will improve your answers if you can't necessarily think of many examples!!
    1: Foley: spatial leadership - quasi president (beyond primus inter pares)
    2: Hennessy: context
    3: Style Over Substance
    4: Joans: elastic theory
