Politics

Edexcel A Level Politics

Everyone should study politics — all members of society should have a better understanding of the general rules under which they live. For these rules to be effective, as many people as possible should actively participate in making them, upholding them and maybe changing them. A healthy society is a society in which many people participate in political activity and do so with insight and understanding.
