I'm not really that good at politics. So if all else fails 'What are the key things that we need to know about the constitution?'

The benefits and disadvantages of both a codified (written) and uncodified (unwritten) constitution. You will need to also know terms such as entrenchment. For an uncodified constitution (which the UK has), you'll need to know the sources of the constitution (the source of a codified constitution is simply its written document). Sources of an uncodified constitution include statues, treaties (such as EU laws) and conventions.

The role of a constitution, sovereignty and the reforms that have happened to the constitution since Blair (1997) and possibly Thatcher if you're willing (1979) are all things that need covering. There are tons of resources on this website if you just type in 'Unit 2 Constitution' that I've used and gotten A's with.

If you need any help with the constitution, then don't hesitate to ask me!
