    I ordered a load of past papers and mark schemes for Edexcel AS Politics... and they haven't yet arrived The exam is tomorrow afternoon so I'm not holding out much hope.

    Has anybody got these who could post some past questions or points from the mark scheme to go over? Anything at all would be useful, I'm getting panicky and feeling rushed and I really need some good practise! Any extracts from Units 1, 2 and 3 papers or mark schemes would be much appreciated and rep worthy.

    Thanks and good luck to everyone else tomorrow
