I'm currently going through past exam questions and one of them asks: What is the difference between constitution and a system of government?

Could someone please help answer the question.
Thank you

I presume you're talking about the Uk but it's always good to compare.
Constitution is a system of government in which the country is run. For example: in American they have a written constitution and a bill of rights, whereas in the UK we don't. We have UK laws that concern the constitution such as the constitutional reform act of 2005(?) our countries constitution is run through acts of parliament mainly and common law.

Your system of government will be how the government is structured I believe or the 3 parts of state- the executive, the judiciary and I can't remember the last one.

If you want some help, I'd recommend looking at Barnett- Constitutional and Administrative Law.
This was a really good text book I used for my exam.
Sorry if this wasn't much help. Best bet is to check out that text book, it's great.
