I did political ideas (liberalism, conservatism, socialism, feminism). I learnt about 5/6 key thinkers for each political idea (what each of them think about human nature, the state, society and economy). Also the “branches of each idea” for example conservatism is split between traditional and new-right. I also did UK government which is the constitution's nature and sources. You look at Parliament (Commons and House of Lords) and various forms of scrutiny, representation, legislation and deliberation. This year is US Government and Politics. If u have any questions lmk

That all sounds really interesting! Did you find any topics boring or were they all enjoyable to you?

my favourite was political ideas because it’s interesting to see the differences in the viewpoints and similarities. I didn’t really like UK Parliament since it’s mainly fact learning but i talked to my friend and she said that it was her favourite so really depends. Politics is mainly learning the content and exam technique to get those marks. I ranked first out of my year in it but I really recommend if u are willing to put the work in

Hey Gabriella !
This is not silly at all ! :no:
I only said it was silly because when people ask for my aspirations and I say that my future plans involved getting a PhD then going from there some people call it stupid that it's my only goal so far. But I'm the kind of person where I focus on one goal at a time so it makes perfect sense to me .

Hi guys, I'm not sure what my predicted grades are yet, but I am considering applying to chemistry and then pharmacy as well :/... I love chemistry and it is my favourite A level but my friends think pharmacy is a little bit better suited to me and my personality. What should I do? Both or one or the other.
