Panicking. No past papers and lots of topics. Does anyone have any predictions on questions or resources?

I was thinking probably 25 marker on either Supreme Court nominations or the Electoral College but as for the 3 nine mark questions.... checks and balances on the president perhaps? constitutional strengths and weaknesses? importance of lobbying?

Really no clue, the 9 mark questions seem really hard to predict. Hopefully constitution, judiciary or voting behaviour will come up as a comparative 25 mark question?

Could be helpful in comparing these factors with the UK, and how in the UK it is less ideological and strict with voting behaviour. We vote for parties and their broad manifesto's rather than being based on these factors.

“Explain and analyse 3” is the way they all start (which is bloody boring) - but there are only so many things this can realistically cover:

- Congress checks on President
- Strengths of House / Senate
- Ways voting behaviour influence elections
- Strengths of electoral college
- Strengths of Supreme Court
- Strengths of election process? (Probably too vague).

Just way too much. So annoying that we have nothing to go on. Where do you start?!

3 factors affecting electoral outcomes?
3 factions within the Republican/Democrat party?
3 methods used by pressure groups?

Possibly:
- Entrenched in constitution, so it is difficult to get rid of them.
- Positive rights rather than negative rights, so they specifically guarantee these rights.
- Used by the Supreme Court to declare legislation unconstitutional?

Does anybody have any information of US presidents and their impact on foreign policy??

Based on the previous paper and specimen stuff I really don’t think they’ll expect us to have in-depth knowledge of specific presidents other than relevant examples. Plus they’ve covered electoral system, pressure groups and third parties in Paper 1 so I think it’s super wise to revise electoral college / election process / two party system / party decline & renewal and DEFF the constitution.

Why are 9 markers so ridiculously specific. I can't answer a thing

Ah, I see their point. We've planned some out anyway. It's not too difficult if you discuss their differences, but there are very few similarities. Thanks!

constitutional reforms in the first one does that mean constitution won't be the 25 marker in this one? i beg constitution comes up. PM and President won't that was in the specimen but I'm feeling a PG 25

I really liked it! Couldn’t finish one of the nine markers so didn’t do that one but loved the source question!

Not enough time! And I struggled to find THREE reasons why the bill of rights protects citizens... ideologies is the hardest of the 3 for me so it can only get worse...
