    You need to decide which subject you want to study first

    It depends on what specific part of 'politics' you like. Is it the mechanisms of democracy, the philosophy or the way power dynamics fits into politics?

    For Political Philosophy/Political Thought, I recommend Royal Holloway (Politics, International relations & Philosophy), this is a tailored course that allows you to primarily study political philosophy with the option to choose a few modules in years 2 and 3, i.e East European politics or say Hegel to Heidegger etc.

    However, as your grades are BBBC at AS level and you are predicted A*AAA I recommend trying for Oxbridge. For this kind of 'politics', I also recommend Birmingham's BA Political Science; it has three modules that I find are very suitable to this specification; Classical Political Thought, Modern Political Thought, and Contemporary Political Thought; moreover, the entry requirements are only ABB, which would make it a suitable insurance choice for you.

    For other specialisations, I really can't help you as when I researched universities, I only looked at whether they had a focus on political philosophy.
