Politics AS/A Level at Finchley Catholic High School
AS, we study various aspects of the British political and electoral system and consider questions like where power really lies. At A2, we examine how different parties and governments have dealt with issues like crime, education, climate change and the economy.
This course will suit anyone who enjoys debating complex contemporary issues, and evaluating different ideas. An interest in political news and issues is essential as much of the course is focused on current events.
The A Level is a useful grounding for studying politics at degree level, but the skills of analysis and evaluation will be useful for many degrees, and will be a good preparation for a career in the media, the civil service or politics itself.
