Course content

You will study themes such as ‘People, Politics and Participation’ which introduces issues such as ‘how is voting behaviour changing in elections?’ or ‘do pressure groups strengthen or weaken democracy?’ You will also study ‘Governing Modern Britain’ which explores the nature of our unwritten constitution, and attempt to answer questions like “to what extent do judges create laws when they interpret them?” and “who has more power – the British Parliament or Europe?” Assessment is 100% exam based with no coursework.
