    Wait what? If you did it last year and it worked out, you wouldn't be learning it again would you?
    I stand by what I said: learning three topics worked out for me. Don't worry about me and why I'm learning something again.

    I got an A in the exam. I'm retaking so that I can get a higher UMS to ensure an A* this year. As well as this my teacher said that you can get away with revising three of the topics for Unit 2.

    That makes sense. I don't see why you couldn't just have said that initially.

    To be honest - I may do the same in the future with the prime minister and cabinet chapter as I find it much more frustrating than the others. I have answered questions on all the other three in exams and not yet on a prime minister/cabinet question so maybe it's a waste of time.

    Wa-hey! I'm doing this exam. We've so far covered Democracy, Elections and Pressure Groups, and we're working our way through Political Parties - so a full house.

    You can do that for Unit 1.

    But for Unit 2 though, I wouldn't risk it. The exam isn't formatted in the same way as the Unit 1 exam. You don't get given a choice of all four chapters. What you get is what you get, and your choice between two questions could both be on the same chapter - the chapter that you didn't revise.

    I wouldn't risk it. Besides, all the chapters in Unit 2 link up heavily. You'd be missing out on key info.

    I wouldn't bother trying to predict the questions - instead, just practise all available papers from previous years. The questions repeat themselves quite often from what I know, especially on Unit 1.

    apparently the papers always correlate to the big political issues of the year, so I think in unit 1 we are guaranteed to get a question on the EU and or referendums in detail

    Questions will never be specifically about an event. It will always be about something broad and questions which candidates can link recent developments in.

    So you could be asked in unit 2 - "how sovereign is Parliament?" and there's a link to the EU. You can say that the people think so much sovereignty has been pooled to the EU, that it is one of the main focuses of the campaign to leave the EU in the June 2016 ref.

    How do you expect him to vote if he is doing his AS-Levels? They didn't let 16 year olds vote in the referendum.

    I honestly don't know. If I were able to vote, my heart says leave but my brain says stay.
