Starting an official thread
- NI/UK governments.

Any help welcome, predictions and sharing of resources please! The essay questions will be on parties this year, so focus on those.

Few things to note - there have been some changes since the election, so make sure you're up to date! Some notable examples:
- UUP/SDLP have now formed the first official opposition
- department act came into effect after the election, reducing statutory committees from 12 to 9!

I'm repeating Northern Ireland politics and UK. I'm really nervous because I'm not going to start revising until my A2 exams are done. I am up to date with NI, I think because I've been following it all year as for Britain I'm not so sure. If anyone has any notes they could share I would be really grateful because at the minute I feel like I have no knowledge to sit the exam. Thanks

Yes, the 16 wasn't great.

Some of the proposals I wanted to mention [Reducing 12 depts to 9 and also official opposition] have both came to pass in the last few weeks. Do you think they could be included, as the question was 'Proposals for reform'

Yes because when the exam was written they didnt know that these would come into actual being before the exam So surely they will be on the markscheme

I write about trying to introduce collective responsibility, decreasing the departments and reforming petition of concern - but I don't know if petition of concern was even relevant.
What about you?

I wrote that there was a call for a official opposition and for a decrease in department numbers, and that the bill was introduced by John McCallister, who also wrote the source for the question ???
I never even thought of petitions of concern but thats a good point
