This subject is part of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme.
It allows you to develop an understanding of the local, national, international and global dimensions of political activity, as well as giving you the opportunity to explore political issues affecting your own life.
Developing international mindedness and an awareness of multiple perspectives is at the heart of this course. It encourages dialogue and debate, and nurtures the capacity to interpret competing and contestable claims.
You will be assessed through written examinations and assignments.
You need at least six GCSEs in the 9 to 5 range and the motivation to study a variety of subjects. As a recommendation, it is advantageous to gain a grade 6 in politics at GCSE.
