What is Politics?
Politics attempts to analyse, understand and explain the relationship between political ideas, institutions and processes. The A Level focus is on: parliament, government and the people; representative democracy; participation; the structures of authority and power; the rights and responsibilities of individuals; engagement with contemporary politics in the UK; current political debates; and the links between political ideologies and political action.
What can Politics lead to?
A good grade in Politics at A level is valued by universities and employers, since it requires the development of analytical skills and demonstrates the ability to evaluate political, social and economic issues. This course also lays an appropriate foundation for further study of government and politics or related subjects in higher education.
