Hello! Can someone explain me about the components and stuff of Edexcel AS Level Politics?
My school offers CIE, and so I can't understand much about how Edexcel works and will be giving exam privately. So please help me. And any tips for preparation

I’m studying myself too! Okay, let me break it down:

Component 1: UK Politics
Democracy/Participation, Parties, Electoral Systems, Voting Behaviour, Conservatism, Socialism and Liberalism.

Component 2: UK Government
Constitution, Parliament, PM and executive, relationships between the branches, alongside a non-core political idea, if you’re self studying you chose this (e.g. Nationalism).

Component 3: USA (can do Global, but I don’t)
Constitution/Federalism, Congress, Supreme Court alongside Civil Rights, Democracy/Participation and comparative theories.

I would wholly recommend purchasing the revision guide and workbook (I’ll link it), it’s great condensed notes with everything you need to know, the textbook is a little too dense, but also essential. Let me know if you need anymore help!
