They're completely different, try not to confuse them.

Prime Ministerial government is to do with whether or not, when taking all other aspects of politics into account e.g. parliament, cabinet, minster etc, the Prime Minister has the most power/whether the PM is too powerful. So he is because he has powers of patronage, reshuffle, ignores cabinet, sorts out times of meetings, but he isnt because cabinet restricts him, parliament restricts him etc.

Presidential is asking whether or not in recent years the Prime Minster is more presidential in their manner. Which in theory is impossible because we can have a president due to our uncodified constitution (so that's one of your criticisms) but in practice, they are taking on the figure of a president. E.g. elections are more focused on the PMs personality, looks. Especially under Blair.
PMs are now more interested in Foreign Policy: much like Obama as head of state.
They now lead as if they're the head of their party and Cabinet is nowhere near them in terms of power (much like Obama and Congress).
And they now have lots of Special Advisors that are similar to Obamas special advisors.

You would definitely argue this with Cabinet Govt as a criticism by saying all the ways that Cabinet can limit the PM (if mentioning a PM government) e.g. Resignation. and how Cabinet can limit a president e.g. media leaks and stuff.

If you need any more explanation lemme know!

I feel like it will come up tomorrow but with AQA nobody can ever be sure tbh!
But make sure you are able to define cabinet govt/prime ministerial govt/presidential govt and make sure you have at least 2 reasons for and against whether we have one in the UK in your head plus examples!

Good luck!
