I did g&p a level and i have to say that, although I would say I probably found it the easiest of all mysubjects, it is no walk in the park! The A2 synoptic paper is a nightmare - just so much to remember!

I do G+P A level, it's not the easiest of my subjects and it's actually suprisingly difficult at A2, but only in the sense there is a lot of material to learn. If you learn the stuff, read around and generally watch the news you can do well, the whole A2 course is on Ideologies, AS was about governing the UK and participation which was pretty much common sense.

Not necessarily on ideology - it depends which spec you follow. My A2 was focussed on comparative British and American politics.

Easy? *******s! It's hard enough staying awake in the lesson!!! In my first module I got an E because I was merely coasting through it all at that time (though A and B in other modules through coasting isn't too bad at all...), decided to fixup and missed an A overall by 4 marks. Not easy at all, and it's even more boring (now, doing A2) looking at our government vs the USA.
