A LEVEL GOVERNMENT AND POLITICS

Through the study of Edexcel A Level Government and Politics, students develop a deep understanding of all aspects of Britain’s political system, such as the role and nature of political parties, elections, parliament and the judiciary, as well as a detailed insight into four key political ideologies: conservatism, socialism, liberalism and feminism. This foundation of knowledge is then used to answer complex political questions, such as comparing the US and UK political systems and evaluating the merits of each system in order to justify which system is better.
