    Hi, for anyone that has done Politics/doing Yr13 Politics, could you guys possibly suggest a structure for writing essays? Particularly those who have gained A grades at both levels.

    I'm in Year 13, and though I write relatively well (according to my teachers), my essays tend to have no real structure, and seem to waffle A LOT.

    If possible could you link in an A grade essay (I've been looking around, and haven't really found any) and perhaps suggest how to structure my essays in order to gain a top grade.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    I did AS Edexcel Politics last year and got an A, I could post a couple essays if you want? Or are you only looking for A2 stuff?

    Hi, thanks for responding. That would be brilliant! I'm retaking AS, so this would be very helpful. Thanks!
