Hello all, currently summarising all my examples into a set of organised documents to aid with essay planning. Anyone know which topics came up last year? Hoping for EU and devolution this year.
Isn't this paper on the 23rd May?

I don’t think they are likely to do a 25 marker on the EU though because we aren’t part of it anymore….. and there has already been a 9 marker on it in 2021 so i hope not. But i’m also trying not to be selective so we’ll see :smile:

Hopefully no EU in the paper. My politics teacher told me it's very unlikley.

Do you have any predictions on what might come up ?

It's not worth trying to predict.
I'm praying the essays are either devolution or executive
Think we deserve advanced info, so many of my teachers have had Covid, just not turned up, been away for a week due to school trips and plus strikes. Just hoping the paper is easy icl, I’m just going through the specification and looking at what I know and don’t know. I might make a Google document with revision on it if anyone wants it!

Hmm kind of same but I’m being kind of alert with pressure groups since it hasn’t came up in 2021&2022 paper 1 and interestingly political parties topic has came up on every past paper 1, so I wonder if they will continue that this year but who knows?¿

yeah i agree with pressure groups - i reckon they'll be on there. Also executive as extract or essay as it's only ever been 9 markers i think. And i think maybe a constitution 9 marker? there's never been one so im guessing something to do with the sources
