I wouldn’t say it is necessarily difficult however there is a lot to remember. There is a lot of content and also you have to learn in a lot of case studies such as supreme court cases, laws and bills. Within each topicm there are multiple questions you have to answer such as ‘Does the UK need a bill of rights?’, ‘Should the House of Lords be replaced?’ and ‘Is the Supreme Court a good protected and civil liberties in the US?’ etc. which means that you have to have the for and against arguments lots of different issues and debates. Also as part of the political ideologies unit you have to learn about five key thinkers for each ideology ,which is 20 in total, which is quite a lot.
However overall it is extremely interesting and probably the most controversial and relevant A-level you can do. It really gives you a good understanding of the world around you and it gives you lots of different options for degrees or jobs after A-levels.
