I try and do it between 10-15 minutes exactly, so I have a bit of time spare to plan the horrible 30 markers

Tbh there is sooo much to talk about in the US 30 markers compared to the UK 30 markers imo but hate picking out themes to start with and counter with

Do you go straight in with the 30 markers or 12 markers?

I don't know I just find USA easier because it's more fun and interesting than UK, and I hate that you have to bring the UK back up in the 12 markers too

What points you got for that? Seniority of court, ability to check government, politicisation?
does anyone know what the 2022 US questions were
Does anyone have a bank if possible paper 3 usa questions for 30 markers? It would be great to plan some ^^
I'm not sure how helpful this will be but here's a bank of unsorted US examples I made a bit ago. I'm pretty sure most are Supreme Court examples.
