    Last 3 years has been sources question. I'd put my money on it being a 40 marker this year. Something about the need for a codified constitution/strengths of ours or post-2010 reform

    Yeah basically, how effectively it carries out its functions, although that question was recently so probably not but worth doing just in case

    For real check out the parliament PowerPoint I send you, it's got all of that in it if you're worried about it, I guarantee if you look at it you'll make yourself feel better

    I don't think you need to know who introduced them before Cameron, just post 2010 it's obvious who introduced them- coalition gov and now stand alone cameron

    So much to cover in such little time

    I dunno if I'll be able to do well in this exam. The only topic which I at least have an idea of answering is PMs & Cabinet. The rest is confusing!

    Yeah if it specifically says post 2010 reforms otherwise you can mention any reforms...look at the pictures I attached above from the politics review, it's got the evasion of post 2010 constitutional reforms
