    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

    I know it is quite a lot...but the stuff on sovereignty links in with parliament...perhaps just use the PowerPoint to make essay plans or tables or mind maps or another way you feel confident about?

    To be honest you don't, it's more about content, like for pm yeah there are examples but if you use the 3 studies that's just as good, the only real examples are of reform and examples of what pms do

    unit 1 territory. You need to know how coalition affected the relationship, i.e. more rebellions, weakened collective responsibility

    Constitution is practically just the reforms nd particular cases like the belmarsh case which is an obvious one
    Parliament I guess there are examples like questions for ministers but in the mock I didn't use many examples and I still managed to get an a...you probs next examples for the types of select committed there are but that's easy like education, welfare the nhs and so on
    You'll need some examples for the functions but they're simple like for scrutiny accountability you can say prime ministers question times holds the government to account and scrutinises what they are doing?

    And unit 2 you don't need to know stats as much as you do for unit one so that makes it easier

    Maybe just watch question time on Wednesday so you have a really super contemporary question to show off in the exam?

    Yeah. A lot of you have provided great guides and information, so I'll take a look at them and try and get to grips with it.

    I'll probably cover Parliament tomorrow morning and then the Constitution in the afternoon, then just review everything done so far in the evening.

    A good night's sleep will probably clear my head. Woke up very early today to prepare for the exam; I'm shattered now!
