Here are some predictions we can try and discuss and see if they're relevant or what else could be a potential

More or less, just don't copy it of course. Refer to it multiple times and basically expand on what it says.

See - I saw the predictions for unit 1 and the topics were all 100% accurate, but the questions were mostly off.

The unit 1 predictions:

Attachment 544403544405

So, I'd hesitate to go off the questions, but reckon the topics could be accurate for unit 2. Going to flag up my mark scheme for Unit 2 and see what hasn't featured recently/as often and compare!

By source, do you mean mark scheme?
They often have 10 separate points for the 5 mark questions. 😒

Yeah I agree completely, they're rjust the ones my teacher forward and I haven't had a chance to look st unit 2 predictions in depth to see if they match up to what the past papers suggest..I'm gonna do the same as you and compare ☺️

I'd have the argument against reforms that have been seen as successful and unsuccessful and argue if they're significant or not?
Hol reform wasn't necessary successful but it's still a significant as people view it as I democratic still there just hasn't been progression

Or they don't have to be about success it could be in general

I haven't revised Unit 2 at all.

Does anybody have suggestions as to where I should start? Should I focus on all 4 or do a Unit 1-style strategy and just focus on 2 or 3.

I can see from the topics in Unit 2 papers that Parliament comes up far less than the other topics, so perhaps it might come up this year?

Are you revising 2 or 3 topics I feel like I don't have enough time to do 3 and just risk doing Parliament and judiciary how likely is it they'll come up in the same section

You HAVE to learn 3, if two of the ones you've only revised come up on the first stimulus question you won't have a question you'll be able to do in the 40 mark side of it
Start wth the constitution and parliament as they interlink with stuff like sovereignty and then choose one of the others you enjoy☺️

I don't think it's a question of likely it's just pot luck, but if you wanna risk it you can but learning 3 can be done. I can give you a starting point with some powerpoints? I just don't have judiciary

Same
That's the only combination you can do and that's even a risk
But since the syllabus began those two do not appear on the same section
I doubt Edexcel would suddenly change the minds now but still with that democracy 25 marker today...wouldn't put it back them😂
