The Russell Group regard Government & Politics A Level as one of the key challenging subjects that allow entry to the most prestigious courses at undergraduate level. It is seen as a traditional academic subject providing evidence of a student’s ability to produce detailed written arguments and reach valid judgements based on strong analysis of supporting evidence. The course is an excellent preparation for a wide variety of university courses and people orientated careers such as law, journalism, human resources, medicine, sciences, civil service, PR and, of course, politics and local government.
