A2 US Government & Politics (Edexcel)Watch this thread
I have a few questions I was wondering if anybody could help me with?
1. How is the exam structured? (Any links to past papers?)
2. Like AS Politics, can you choose which modules to do in the exam?
3. Which modules do people usually do?
Would be thankful for any help.
In section A, there are 5 questions, each worth 15 marks. You must complete 3.
In section B, there are 3 questions, each worth 45 marks. You must complete 1.
Because the exam questions aren't split into topics, it is unadvisable to skip a topic, in case 2 of the 15 mark questions are on that topic for example.
There are some past papers on the normal Edexcel website.
If you don't know the topics, they are as followed:
Unit 3: Elections and Voting, Political Parties, Pressure Groups, Racial and Ethnic Politics.
Unit 4: The Constitution, Congress, the President, the Supreme Court.
What role have women’s rights groups had in influencing various issues?
