    I want to take one of these but cannot decide which one. Is there anybody who is taking both who could help me? I'd like some information about what each course is like and which one is more challenging/enjoyable, what the courses involve. Thanks for any help!

    I do Gov&Poll, but I don't do Philosophy, Gov&Pol is mainly about the British Political system and how impacts on everyday life. In the lessons you will expected to voice your opinion about what is going on in the news as we were doing the "Was it right to go to war?" and coporal punishment in school. You are expected to read a quailty newspaper nearly everyday. Hoped it helped?

    Consider yourself lucky to have the choice. My schools runs neither...I envy you! Personally I would go for Gov and Pol but thats because I am doing it at degree level. I think both would be really interesting though

    With Gov and Pol a comparitive module will probably be on the syllabus. Comparing the similarities and differences between the British and American systems, this would be really interesting and applicable to modern day.

    yeah at queen mary, a 1st year module is on comparative governments. philosophy is also very good, it teaches you to be more clear and concise about what you write and how your expected to argue. plus it does interlink with philosophy. i think you do a political philosophy in politics a level if im not mistaken?

    Philosophy seems more interesting.
