    The content for unit 1 is quite easy to remember but it can be boring and feel useless at times. Unit 2 however is really interesting and will get your opinions and views going although the information is a lot harder to remember. The exams also require the ability to write an essay and counter argue In a short amount of time which is the part I struggle with. Content is easy and somewhat interesting, the exam is tough but doable with practice or if you have the natural ability to write good essays go for it

    I love History and I'm quite into my politics!
    And it must be a different exam board- I'm doing Tsarist and Communist Russia with Post-war Britain
    Ah that's a shame I'm doing the making of modern Britain and the making of a super power: USA. Probably the 2 best topics that go with politics, especially the A2 of modern Britain

    I thought that it would coincide better, but I really did not want to study that section of Britain, but to be honest I am doing Post-War Britain which goes into detail about the conservatism and liberalism of the 20th century, but idk if that's included in the politics

    pay extra interest to the Political parties part, although it's boring it goes really well when you talk about how they were formed etc. because they usually ask questions on party ideology

    I really enjoyed it. Obviously it's a completely essay based subject which means you do need to know your stuff (there is A LOT to remember), but it was interesting getting to learn about this British political system (AS) and American system (A2) in great detail. I don't regret taking it all.
