A level Politics deals with how political decisions affect our daily lives and how our democracy is organised. It addresses questions such as: Do we live in an effective democracy? Are the views of the people who elect politicians sufficiently represented? How can dissent and protest be effective? You will cover political ideologies, organisations and parties, how government works (or not), and possibly the politics of another country such as the USA.

You will need to have a good grasp of factual knowledge and the ability to analyse, argue and discuss in your essay work. Marked by Teachers has a wide range of essay examples which will identify the key skills you'll need to write strong answers in your Politics examinations.

The great attraction of Politics as a subject is that by keeping up with news sources, new material is available to you every day and that makes thesubject dynamic and alive. Politics is a great subject to pave the way for further study in Sociology, Geography and Economics and of course is ideal preparation for a Politics degree.
