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.

Heya! Doing this for the first time so glad someone made a forum like this, welp since you know the two main ones you want to do (albeit it's risky but too late now.) I suggest spending today on electoral systems if you have any textbooks and notebooks it can help also make sure you know either quotes or statistics on them aswell and yeah for 25 markers follow this structure:
Define
(Side you're arguing)
3 P.E.EL
Side not arguing
2 P.E.E.L
Then a conclusion
Do the same for ten marker but just define and then two P.E.E.L paragraphs
*By P.E.E.L i mean point,evidence,explain,link
Then spend tomorrow on pressure groups and make your you ans questions on the way

Thanks for the reply.

Should I just learn all the 25 mark questions. Would that contribute to doing 10 mark questions. I think I did this last year. It's pretty miraculous how I achieved a C last year being in this same situation. Absolutely impossible was made possible by me haha.

Because there's not enough time to look at 10 markers, so if i learn the 25 markers would that already cover any possible 10 markers?

Yeah, but since its government, questions are highly unlikely to be repeated again so building your knowledge would probs be better

Oh, they wouldn't? I've just created this myself, and I cant figure what 2011 and 2012 correlates to. They pretty much ask the same thing and I have a feeling the strong and stable one might come up since Theresa May just recently formed a minority government...

Any predictions for this paper?

I'm predicting this:

How far does the Westminster electoral system ensure strong and stable government? (25 marks)

This one hasn't come up since 2013 - Assess the advantages of using proportional representation electoral systems (25 marks)

Make out a case In favour of electoral reform for Westminster elections (25 marks)

One of these will come up. I can't strongly predict the first one because that threw a lot of people over, but then again it may come up since May's formation of a minority government and they should expect people to prepare for it since it had already came up as it people won't be able to complain about it, if that makes sense.

I don't understand. this is your retake paper? so you failed the first time around. why have you waited until 2 days before the paper to study? what have you been doing the entire year?

Hey, could you please help me with your argument strategy for the first question on strong and stable governments. Have a feeling it could be this.

Could you talk about
1) FPTP producing majorities in the past with clear mandates to govern
but what else?

Pipe down just a little, getting a C is hardly a fail. I got 87% last year and im resitting for 90%, is that still a fail for you? Stay in your lane xoxo

Its true, I'm in the same predicament. Got a C last year and I'm resiting. Only really started revising this week, because realistically i have other a-levels to prepare for. Not going to spend months revising a resit paper I've learnt before, wheres the logic in that.

Some people have too much confidence on this site

Participation was a okay the 10 marker was worded weirdly but the 25 marker was a dream and the pressure group section was pretty good overall.
