Government and Politics A-level

The course will help you develop a critical awareness of the nature of politics, and the relationship between political ideas, institutions and processes. The focus of the course is very much on contemporary UK and global political issues. You are expected to keep up with the news throughout the course.

The exam board require up to date examples so if there was an important by-election in April and the exam is in May they would expect it to feature in your exam answer if relevant.

This course can be studied as part of the Business or Social Science Pathway.
