Government and Politics AS/A Level at The Maelor School

Course description

Government and Politics considers how our society makes decisions and about the distribution of power within that decision making. You will learn about the electoral systems and how public policy is made. It is a fascinating subject for those interested in the current social and political debates and who enjoy reading about current affairs and participating in vigorous discussion.
Students will develop their research and debating skills. The subject requires good literacy and written communication as well as the ability to formulate an argument and both write and speak persuasively. You will also learn how to distinguish fact from rhetoric, giving you a better understanding of your world.
Government and Politics can be the first step to further study in law, journalism, PPE, international relations or public policy. It combines well with History and Economics within a suite of subjects at A level.

Entry requirements
