Yeah I agree! Well... I find some more harder than others. For example, I think answering exam questions on UK politics is a lot more easier than answering questions on US politics since we literally live in the UK and understand the system better than in the US. That said, I do still think learning about US politics is quite interesting

Hey There! Currently studying the A2 part of my course which is USA Politics (comparative with UK Politics from year 1 and political ideas. At the time of writing this, my class is currently studying the judicial branch of the US government.

Unfortunately, at the moment, I do not have any resources to share hence why I am looking to join a group where notes can be shared around. If you have any that I could view, that would be great!

I can answer this if you want? The types of questions would likely come from this topic would be the amendment process and pros and cons, whether or not federalism is a good system for the US, and possibly checks and balances etc. For the most part in comparison to the Congress topic I think this is relatively easily and draws a lot of parallels to the UK constitution topic which is nice, you just have to think of opposites to the UK really

See, the thing is, this is the first time this spec is being taught so there is no past papers that we can look back on for revision. That said, I really do pray that he exam comes up with easy questions such as three principles of the US constitution or something that is quite straight forward

Im just going over each topic by doing exam questions that corresponds to that topic. Since the course is taught over a duration of 2 years, there isn't an official AS paper that we have to sit. However, we did a mock in which I got a B

I got an A in my AS and I just did my mock yesterday! My teacher is very good with essay questions so the questions I got yesterday were: whether or not the us constitutional is fit for purpose, whether or not the senate is better to be in than the house and whether or not the Supreme Court act like a third house in congress. Hope his helped
