Hello, I have just started politics A level and already feel like I'm drowning. Does anyone have any advice for extra reading, getting ahead, revision tips and just basically getting my head around the subject??

I came up with a bunch of acronyms to remember stuff:

To remember the changes under New Labour remember RuPaul’s Drag Race: Rights, Parliament and Participation, Devolution and Decentralisation and Reform (Electoral and Judicial).

To remember the checks on the British Executive remember COPE: Commitees, Opposition, PMQ’s and E-petitions/early day motions.

To remember the checks on the President remember AVAIL: Annual budget, Veto, Appointments, Impeachment and Legislators.

To remember the checks on the Prime Minister remember ‘The 6 Ps’: Prima Inter Pares, Party, Parliament, People, Personal Qualities and Politcal Circumstances.

I would recommend reading Politics Review articles they are super helpful and informative and if you can watch Prechewed Politics videos. Try getting flashcards and writing key case studies on them and having someone test you. Go online and find past papers and bullet point ideas of what you could say for them. If you’re struggling to come up with an answer, revise whatever topic that question is about. From what I’ve seen on past papers, checks and balances seems to be a favourite topic amongst examiners.

Tbh out of History, Spanish and Politics is definitely my hardest A Level so you’re feeling overwhelmed don’t worry and push through!
