A Level Politics

What do you learn in Edexcel A Level Politics Studies?
You learn:
- Analysis of major political ideas (Liberalism, Conservatism, Socialism) plus one minor one (a choice of multiculturalism, feminism, anarchism etc.)

- Elements of UK politics (case studies of recent Prime Ministers, democracy and participation, the workings of Parliament, pressure groups etc)

- UK government (how the UK political process works, the branches of government, relationship between parliament and PM, Supreme Court)

- Comparative studies (your school will choose the module for you, but it’s a choice of either US politics or global politics)

There’s a lot of theory but all the theory is grounded in case studies and examples. I did the exam this spring, I loved studying it, it’s an interesting subject but it needs a genuine interest in politics, it can’t really be done if politics doesn’t interest you

Do you have any more questions ?

Looking for students studying EDEXCEL History & EDEXCEL Politics to create a WhatsApp study & revision group.

NO AS STUDENTS PLEASE ONLY A LEVEL STUDENTS

A small group of around 5 people who are committed, serious & are willing to support and share advice/notes when needed. It saves us a lot of time & our main focus will be retaining information & doing weekly past exam questions & creating & learning essay plans.

I know that a lot of a level students who got the top grades told me that when cohesively working with small groups, who are focused and determined to get the grades they want & need, they’re more likely to achieve it with support of people likeminded

Must be serious & committed **

- edexcel politics; UK & GLOBAL
- edexcel history; Britain transformed, 1920’s America boom bust & recovery & British empire

ONLY FIRST 5 PEOPLE TO MESSAGE WILL BE INCLUDED IN GROUP
