Im considering choosing politics for my A-Levels along with history and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what it's like and whether chosing it would be of any use. I'm planning on doing a degree in history afterwards.

I do history for A-level (year 13) and although its hard at first it becomes very very interesting towards yr 13
As with politics, my friend was literally telling me today how it fits in so well with history and that its really easy to do well in.
I did history, english lit, and psychology (instead of politics) and although i love psychology, i kinda wish i did politics because its easier and more relevant to history .

So yeah i def think you should do it, my friends enjoy it and it ties well with everything else.

whats your third choice? in our school theres a common combo of his, english, politics

I’m doing Politics and History and they complement each other very well. I personally really enjoy politics: it’s not only interesting but relevant to what’s going on in the world. However, it is not an easy subject because you have to learn lots of new political vocabulary and political case studies. However if you are genuinely interested in politics, there is no reason why you should find this difficult.

History and politics go hand-in-hand. In politics you need to have a sound understanding of the past: past political developments, laws, referendums, elections, and court cases. And just like history, your essays are going to included a past case study. It also helps because it’s an essay-based subject and you learn to analyse and evaluate arguments, which is something you will need in history.

I'm still undecided but I think I'm going with history, politics and either English language/literature. I'm just worried that they're all heavily writing based and I'm just gonna spend my life writing essays!
