Heyy, the two 40 marker questiuons are:
1. To what extent have constitutional reforms introduced since 1997 made UK more democratic?
2. What are the functions of Parliament?

This is roughly how I remember them I think.
Do you know what the questions are for unit 1 and the source questions for unit 2?

Thank you

The constitution was a source based question. I think the above poster's question is correct, only it was 25 marks rather than 40. The 5 marks was like features of the constitution and the 10 marks asked about codified constitution.

The other source question was about the Prime Minister, I think they mentioned reshuffles and individual ministerial responsibility. I just can't remember too well cause I didn't do this question.

The 40 marks were about judges, but we didn't learn that so I didn't read it really. The question I did was something like "Parliament is not adequate in performing its functions. Discuss."

For Unit 1, I remember there was a question on referenda for 5/10 marks. And then something about the strengths of representative democracy in the UK for the 25 marks.

The 25 marks on pressure groups was about how they undermine democracy, I can't remember the 5/10 marks.

I didn't do the parties question but I think it was about factions between the parties. And again I didn't learn elections.

Sorry I couldn't remember it exactly but I hope this helps!

Do you remember anything that was on elections? Nothing specific but just roughly what the question covered? Anything about FPTP?

No problem, I'm glad to help! And we didn't cover elections so I didn't look at the question, sorry.

The 40 marker I believe was to what extent has the judiciary come into conflict with government ministers
and to what extent to Parliament fulfil its functions

I don't remember the 40 marker being on constitutional reform at all!

Yeah, it was such an unexpected question... It would of been fine if it was just the government in general over ideology but the knowledge of knowing certain ministers and cases proved harder

Not really if I'm honest, I only really remember one question which was explain the workings of 3 electoral systems.

However, we all planned 'to what extent is the UK a liberal democracy' and it didn't come up so it may do this year!!

I remember the parties questions were beautiful though, you should revise them!

Oh okay thanks. It's cause my mocks are next week and knowing the questions will help me out a lot! haha. Plus, we only covered democracy and elections for Unit 1 so only questions on that will come up.
Do you remember what the source question on Constitution was for Unit 2?

I wouldn't just revise them two, I'm totally against teachers selectively teaching because it slims your chance just in case a beautiful question comes up. I was taught the entire paper and revised 3/4 options, the judiciary question was hard and the parliament one was easy... Big regret!

Oh no it's cause we only covered democracy and elections for Unit 1 and Constitution and only functions of Parliament for Unit 2. So I'm pretty sure for Unit 1 there will be questions on democracy and elections, just need to know what they are haha
