Hey!!!
I'm taking History, Politics, Maths and Philosophy. My exam board for Politics is AQA. I'm not fully sure what I want to do when I'm older but I'll probably look somewhere towards the politics or law route.

Hi!
I'm doing History, Politics (Edexcel), English Literature and an EPQ. I'm hoping to study politics in some capacity at university, potentially alongside history.

Based in NW London
Exam board: Edexcel
What I enjoy most: Political systems e.g. FPTP and other voting systems
Where I struggle: Not a struggle per se but I find some parts of ideologies incredibly tedious.
My other subjects are English and History

Cannot recommend practising essay technique more - got me from a D to a B in my first and second set of assessments, and hoping for an A on the third.

Keep revising your AO1 knowledge - the more recent the examples, the more sophisticated you look, and all it takes is keeping an eye on the news.

And always think about what you're writing. Don't just write for the sake of it, think about all the analysis and evidence you're putting in before you do it - this is where planning can (emphasis on can) be useful.
Anyone have any ideas what the AQA politics a level paper 1 topics might be this year?
