    I didn't say anything about codification vs non codification in my 40 mark i wrote about other reforms were we supposed to talk about codification ?
    You could genuinely write about every reform not gonna lie.
    Presuming of course you had something to day about it

    I thought that paper was really good as well, compared to last years exam and unit 1 i thought it went well. The judiciary 40 marker was so nice compared the the constitution one i thought as well.
    I was so confused for the judiciary.. What did you put?

    Oh god idek
    I put
    Chilcot inquiry
    George Osbornes first budget
    Expenses scandle
    but not sure if any of that is right or relevant
    tbh I recon you can still almost get full marks without, I didnt explain anything really just examples and that they cant force government to pass things

    For the Parliament 25 Marker I explicitly only mentioned the Commons rather than both the Commons and the Lords. Can someone tell me how many marks I am likely to lose? Would be very helpful.

    No it isn't 0, you can't get full but codification is a reform that could happen
    Really? Oh I'm glad I'll get at least 15 marks or something at least I didn't totally flop

    I have no idea if this is right but I put

    Pro Judiciary
    Independence and the whole idea of no interference when sub justice? meaning no media or pop opinion pressure ? e.g Abu Qatada

    Gov is bad at protecting rights e.g Terror legislation 06 case pushed through against the advice of ECHR after the blemarsh case

    Judicery is good at protecting the rule of law, even against government body e.g herceptin case where NHS trust acted ultra vires

    Pro Gov
    Accountable

    Maybe their history is not that bad with civ lib e.g HRA and the fact they are fighting for Civil Liberties in other countries (tho I think thats not valid at all)

    Judges have a very unrepresentative background, mostly oxbridge, white... might make them bias

    No idea tho if any of that is right

    That's what I did because that's what I thought the question was asking. That does not appear to be what other peole have done.

    Yeah sounds good, I did electoral reform, codification, HoL, Bill of Rights, briefly mentioned EU referendum and then did a paragraph saying we've had enough and we don't need anymore. I did a for and against for all of those

    I feel like that question was really misleading in general

    No, there is no evaluation mark for 10 markers, check the mark scheme if you don't believe me
