    It all seems a bit more complicated now! Basically I've learned them all because I didn't know to focus on 3 of them, so hopefully I'll at least be prepared for whatever comes up! Thank you!

    So for Unit 1, me and a couple of people went and did some rooting round through the previous AQA mark schemes and in terms of predictions I can provide some for Parliamentary Law Making, Delegated Legislation and Criminal Courts and Lay People. If these subjects are relevant to anyone and would like these predictions please reply xD

    SAME! Here are my thoughts so I hope these help!

    Parliamentary law making:

    Question 1 – Could be law-making process for the first question in this topic. The question hasn’t been on since 2014. Last year’s question gave students the choice between discussing influences on Parliament. So it’s unlikely that will come as question one this year but you never know!

    Question 2 – Could be a question on influences this year in terms of the second question on this topic. The law-making process has been the second question on this topic twice for both the 2015 and 2016 paper.

    Question 3 – Always going to be and advantages/disadvantages question no doubt about that. The 2016 paper covered disadvantages of law making so I predict a question which will ask us to discuss both advantages and disadvantages. Or we could get a question focusing on advantages since that hasn’t been on the paper since 2012.

    Delegated Legislation:

    Question 1 – Always going to be a question on types of delegated legislation. Last year the first question allowed students to discuss any two forms of delegated legislation so our question this year could be on two forms of delegated legislation. There has never been a question on one specific form of delegated legislation.

    Question 2 – Most likely going to be a question on parliamentary & judicial controls. A question which focused on Parliamentary controls was asked in last year’s paper. Ever since the June 2012 paper, AQA have mostly been switching between parliamentary and judicial controls on a yearly basis which leads me to believe we will get a question on judicial controls this time round.

    Question 3 – Between 2014 and 2016 AQA have switched between advantages and disadvantages and reasons for delegated legislation. Last year AQA asked about both advantages and disadvantages of delegated legislation so this year’s question could be focused on either advantages and disadvantages separately or why Parliament delegates law-making power. Reasons for delegated legislation were seen in the 2015 and 2012 paper.

    You can start by describing the process in the House of Commons and then just say it goes through the same process in the House of Lords and then mention how it can either be bounced back to the HoC or go to royal assent. you can then also say that the HoC can ignore the HoL rejection and send the bill for royal assent anyway.

    Is the parliamentary process just asking you for the process of a bill e.g. 1st reading and so on?
