Have you got any predictions for the comparative 25 marker? I think potentially it’s going to surround political parties : politics and the constitution hasn't come up in a while as well?
2023 comparative essays were UK/US Judiciary and UK/US third parties

constitution came up last year for the extract! i would've said political parties but so much of paper 1 was focused on parties i'd be surprised if they did another 25 marker on the topic
i think congress will definetley come up - didn't come up last year and its such a big topic. the presidency too - I wonder if this paper with be more government based since paper 1 was basically all politics

My politics teacher said this is highly likely!

Has anyone got any definitions for Structural, Rational and Cultural Theory?
Has anyone got any definitions for Structural, Rational and Cultural Theory?


Here's a definition plus examples for executive... (hope you find this helpful :smile:)
Structural is the role of institutions (e.g. Cabinet Gov (UK) and Singular Executive (USA)
Rational is the role of individuals (e.g. Barack Obama (USA President 2009-2016) and David Cameron (UK PM 2010-2016) and who both had minority governments)
Cultural is the roles of shared ideas and culture (e.g. US culture has given the president respect from the general public, whereas the prime minister doesn't have that same level of respect and instead Parliament does)

In what context are you supposed to talk about the civil rights movement.
What could the question be?

Its unlikely we'll get a direct question on the civil rights movement itself, but the questions that could be asked about topic civil rights are along the lines of;

A 9 marker on how Civil Rights campaigns have had an impact on US politics (so there you could talk about the civil rights movement)

A 9 marker on how pressure groups protect rights in the USA

And there could be an extract question on civil rights

But there could also be a comparative question on civil rights;

Be asked on Structural Cultural or Rational theories on civil rights

And essay on the Supreme Courts in both countries and how they protect rights

I found a mastersheet on the whole US side on the 2023 forum for this paper - I've found it super helpful for examples and general cramming, it's attached below.
