Hi,
If you are reasonably intelligent you'll be fine.
This was my classes final A Level grades:
1- A* (me lol)
1- A
2- B
5- C
1- D
This was from a bad comprehensive.
My class went from A/B's at AS to B's/C's at A2. Because we did political ideologies at A2, which is tricker than US government which most do at A2. All pretty much do UK government/politics at AS.

So you should look into what modules your school offers. But me and my good friend got A* and A respectively and we were really the only fairly smart ones in the class. So you'll get an A/A* if you're somewhat clever, it isn't that hard.

I’m doing AS and i love it! There’s a lot of content but it isn’t hard to be honest, as long as you make notes as you go along you’ll be fine! Probably my easiest as level

I literally just used Heywood for A2, with a few other notes for bits of the spec he misses out. I got 200/200 at A2 so yeh I would recommend it.

To be honest I’m not entirely sure yet, it was originally law but I’ve started to consider politics now too
