politics aqa

i have a few questions regarding AQA politics
1. are there any recent example banks i could use for my essays?
2. how do i structure extract questions? (esp the USA ones)
3. are any of you able to predict the topics that will come up in the exam (probably impossible)
hi there, in terms of predictions though it can be a gamble and a risk i do think the papers can only have so much to test and especially regarding patterns it’s something they’ve done for so long i know there’s politics explained that does predictions and alevelpolitics. so yeah

1.

anything in the news really (on top of examples from the textbooks or) maybe have a look on quizlet

2.

introduction, source1, source2, source1, source2, conclusion is the rough structure i use - use the extract as much as possible

3.

my teachers think if AQA decide to be really mean, EU could come up as there has never been a proper essay question on it

revise the topics that haven't come up extracts like Congress, parties, direct democracy and pressure groups, primaries and caucuses. party unity, policies haven’t come up as a comparison yet and cultural theory hasn’t been there for a while
do you have any predictions for paper 1? And how is everybody feeling? - officially less than 10 days for the exam😭

and as for predictions EU and constitution is what my teachers have been saying
I’d cry if we get an EU question😍 I feel like 90% of my revision has been politics bc it’s my worst subject but I still just feel SO unprepared. I’m praying we don’t get a question on like ordinary party members/party structure. The 2022 one about how political parties elect their leaders would’ve made me go insanee

They have done a 9 marker on the EU before so they might do it as a source question maybe?

hey guys could someone lmk if this is right. If we had a question like explain and analyse three prerogative powers of the PM
Could you use patronage powers to appoint/dismiss ministers, call an early general election and award honours - just not sure if these are all actually prerogative powers?
