    What are your weaknesses in the subject?
    Definitely read through the book making notes and things like that and when it comes time to write any essay ask your teacher (or me ) what you aren't sure about, ie. How to structure your essay. Any more specific questions?

    I did A Level Government & Politics and got 200/200 UMS in AS. I literally just read AS UK Government & Politics 4th edition by Philip Lynch and Paul Fairclough over and over until I knew it inside out. That's what worked for me, maybe it could work for you. Good luck for your AS exams, I really enjoyed doing this at A Level

    Wow, that's amazing - well done!

    I'm not necessarily struggling with anything new at the moment, I just want to get a very good grade (A)

    Thanks for your help - it has most certainly helped.

    I'm not necessarily struggling with anything majority at the minute.

    However, if I do, it's reassuring that you've offered your help.

    How much time did you spend revising for a levels?

    I only heard about that book about 6 weeks before my exam. I just basically spent hours a day reading it before the exam until I learnt it. I would typically spend about 4 hours a day revising.
