    Oh, I f***ed that one up :P T_T Muh baddd... I think it was general PR AND/OR specific, Edexcel's quite kind about letting you interpret Qs differently The thing that got me was the 'form a case' bit or w/e, did that mean write like a speech or just write like normal section c questions? Wasn't sure one the 'style' of writing to use :/

    I just spoke about PR systems in general, and then used examples of how each type of system would improve Westminster elections. I think you were just supposed to right like a normal question.

    I spoke about it in general dropping in advantages about different systems. Don't worry AMS is a good one to do if you mentioned the effect of introducing it in Scotland, Wales, London Assembly etc and said how that could benefit Westminster elections XX

    Ahhh, AS Politics I remember the days.

    But don't sweat it, AMS is a system of proportional representation. So long as you gave examples I'm sure you did just fine.

    I don't think going against will lose you marks so don't worry. I ****ged off FPTP too much but thats a positive thing for PR so I should be ok I HOPE! lol. Don't threat though guys, last year you needed 69% for an A because the nation as a whole didn't do too well.

    In this exam you are limited for time, people don't get everything in and a lot simply don't get things right. Don't worry, the grade boundries are lowered

    A mate of mine got 44 out of 90 for Unit 3 (year 13) and another got 52 out of 90. The guy with 44 got a D and the guy with 52 got a B. Thats 57% for a B, pretty low!
