I'm thinking of doing it too, either that or accounting AS. If I plan on doing Economics at degree level which would be best to help differentiate me from all the other candidates with the same grades?
Also how essay-based is politics (I'm not an essay fan)?

im doing a one year a level intensive in government and politics. i did it to add an extra subject and becos i thought it looked interesting. in terms of difficulty, i did 2 as modules in january i got As with not that much work. however it has become increasingly difficult in the summer with considerably more exams and havent really looked at revising any A2 yet [exams next week]. in terms of differentiating you from all the other candidates with the same grades, i guess it does to an extent but u have to show a genuine reason why u chose to do it in ur personal statement. i think it is actually an interesting subject to take, and increases ur knowlegde in something that is very important in society
in terms of coupled with economics, i think its good and there is a fair bit of overlap depending wot exam board ur on. it is an essay based subject, and to an extent so is alevel economics [well my board is]
