OK, so the Unit 1 paper in on 24/05/18, so I ahe 2 days to revise 2 topics (elections and pressure groups) and I know absolutely nothing. I literally would not be able to answer a single question, even if it is a 5 marker.

What would be the wisest way to go about and study this in 2 days. Last year I achieved a C in that paper, but retaking for a better grade. Last year I was in the same situation.

Should I just look at some 25 markers and learn those 25 mark questions that I predict may come up since I don't have enough time to do every 25 markers.

And should I focus on 10 markers or whatever I learn from the 25 markers I can use in the 10 markers? Can this work and do the papers work like this. HELP.

Is this the best solution. Please help I have only 2 days to cover 2 chapters.

Learn 25 markers. Plan them, you can do a whole topic in a day, it'll be time consuming but it's a bit late to be laid back. Here's an example about how to go about planing:

A possible question could be:

To what extent do pressure groups strengthen democracy? (25).

They do:
Point- Represent minority views
Evidence- Any pressure group
Explanation- better for those who feel under-represented by a party, tyranny etc.

Explain

They do not:

Would this automatically help with 10 markers when I go into the exam? I'm planning to learn about 5 25 markers for one topic (Elections/Pressure groups) and I am looking at the really old papers (2009/2010) as one of these may come up.

Yes, 25 markers often cover 10 markers, you might need one extra point, and you're sorted. Just go through past papers.
