Hey guys was wondering how you were feeling about the exam and if you had any useful or good little statistics or facts the examiner would like. Also how are you'll feeling about the exam?

I've got this exam tomorrow, feeling pretty nervous about it, especially for the 25 markers as I feel I'll run out of things to say. Some good stats to know are key turnout figures I guess.

I hope internal party divisions comes up, both past and present as that's the only thing I think I fully know...

All of me is hoping a question on AMS doesn't appear. I'm hoping for something along the lines of Closed Regional Lists, third parties, turnout, impact of media on participation or something along those lines.

How did everyone find it?

I feel like it went pretty badly for me tbh. I did participation and voting systems, i really didn't like the participation questions. I had no idea what pluralism meant and I struggled with the 25marker. Voting system went ok though.

I did first and second topics... thought exam was pretty kind to be fair. I'm confident I did fairly well overall!

Not sure on the exact wording but it was something like,
"the case for retaining FPTP in uk general elections is overwhelming. " discuss

The word 'retained' confused me, so I argued the other way we were supposed to e.g. The FPTP system is undemocratic and should be retained, only because for some reason I thought retained meant change and not kept the same..

The 25 mark questions were amazingly simple thank goodness

For the retaining FPTP question, I just wrote an argument for/against FPTP (unrepresentative/simple and transparent/over-exaggeration of smaller parties etc ... the normal) and then used the source in my conclusion by saying that:

"As the 2011 Referendum showed, the British public overwhelmingly voted against electoral reform. Electoral reform is only topic for discussion amongst the "chattering classes and political anoraks", and so there is strong support for the case of retaining FPTP ..."

Do you guys think I'll be marked down for using the source instead of my own knowledge??

Although I did that question.. the word retained was what made the entire question confusing because I did not know if it meant change or keep :/
