    I just got an A in US politics. I used this https://www.amazon.co.uk/A2-US-Gover...el+politics+a2 for the basics.
    Honestly the main reason why I got an A was because of the internet and researching topics myself with up do date examples. There is so much more you need to know compared to UK politics so you have to be constantly revising topics. Towards the end I planned and completed every single past paper question including potential ones which may come up. Once you have completed all 8 topics (make sure you revise every single one) it's easy as they all link together.

    I got ABC in the end.
    I took a gap year because of illness and one because I didn't get into the uni I wanted . That's it.
    I'm going to SOAS anyway so it worked out for me in the end.

    Even if somebody has retaken many times or whatever whilst it's not ideal or something that is encouraged...you don't have to be nasty about it and make the person feel low. SMH

    if you're really off to uni this year after having tried for the past 2 years in a row to do so, why then are you asking 'Is ideologies harder than America? '. I'm curious. Do enlighten me.

    I did the EU topic A. I was wondering which was harder because the first time I did ideolgoies but didn't take the exam because of illness and dropped out half way. My cousin has a choice so I was wondering which is easier.

    Yeah they took me. They were my firm so maybe that helped. Originally they didn't so I was going to go Essex uni but I had a remark for sociology and that went up to an A so SOAS called me and offered me a place.
    Maybe my reference helped as well.

    You have changed your tune far too many times. I don't know what to believe anymore. Oh well, whatever rocks your boat.

    I think Audrey has proved many times to be slightly insane. I wouldn't worry too much about her posts.

    I've seen you on here for like 2 or 3 years I think? And you're always asking the same questions so its very easy to identify you even though you use other clone accounts. The repetitive questions you have often asked on this forum include :
    1) Which books are you using?
    2) Is this topic more harder than that topic?
    3) Which uni did you apply to?
    4) Why did you apply to that uni?
    5) What grades did you get?
    6) Which uni is more reputable?
    7) Which subjects did you do?
    8) Repeat questions (1) to (7) again.

    From day 1 your focus has been completely wrong. If you want to do well in your subjects, you should discuss about the subject matter. I hope you really have made it to SOAS School of Law. If you haven't and are planning to retake your A levels for the third time in the October/November 2016 session then please ensure that your focus is correct.

    I wish you well.

    LOL i am not going to explain myself. i have already said my situation. I don't even no why it should even bother explaining to you..
    Clone accounts? I only have one account thank you very much...so I don't know where you are getting all this information from.
    I have never even asked people what uni they have applied to or what subjects people do so i think your talking absolutely rubbish tbh.

    Congrats on getting into SOAS for law with ABC. It's unheard of really to get into law at SOAS with such grades but I guess miracles do happen? I guess what I will miss most is seeing you ask the same set of repetitive questions over and over and over again on this thread especially now that you've finally gotten into uni. Good luck and have a good one up at SOAS!
