AQA’s Government and Politics will enable students to develop a wide range of skills including the ability to comprehend, synthesise and interpret political information; analyse and evaluate political knowledge; identify connections, similarities and differences between the areas studied. You will select relevant material and construct and communicate arguments clearly and coherently using appropriate political vocabulary.

At AS-Level, candidates will develop a broad knowledge and understanding of the political system of the UK. At AS, the specification concentrates on People, Politics and Participation.

The course can be taken in the following ways:

- Within KC Sixth with another two, possibly three A-Levels, tutorial and optional EPQ and Core maths
- As an ‘add on’ to a Full Time Level 3 Study Programme at the College, for example alongside a BTEC Extended Diploma
- As a stand-alone part-time course
