I have just downloaded the previous sets of exams for all the modules. This should be ideal 1) to see the format of the exams and become familiar with them 2) To show you what Type of questions should be expected and 3) To allow you to practice. PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT. Remember the great Muhammad Ali - He said 'I hated every minute of practicing, but I said "Don't quit! Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion." Your goal is for the best you can achieve - Practice and work hard and you WILL get the top grades you deserve.
Politics is obviously not a static subject. Last year policing and justice was THE big issue. Now it has been devolved and other issues take its place. This is the nature of the subject and the nature of what you are learning. To be successful at Politics you have to keep on top of the game so to speak.. know what's going on locally and nationally.
I am hoping that the news section within this site will offer a good source of key news items. I have started with three - Peter Robinsons desire to drop the number of MLA's and executive departments. Dawn Purvis' successful attempt to stop double jobbing at least with MLA' s and Councillors. Thirdly there is a report on the US Mid Terms and the rise of a new force in American politics.
Welcome to Lagan College's own website devoted to Politics .... and primarily to helping you all achieve the HIGHEST grade possible at AS and A2 Level. While we realize that the AS/A2 Level politics course has a lot to do with classroom learning, a vast amount also has to do with your own outside research. We hope this website will help you to find resources, deepen your learning, encourage your research and enhance your understanding. It is a 24/7 way to learn and should open up a lot more
The politics department are always looking for ways to improve. Any Constructive feedback is more than welcome. We are all aiming for the same thing - Each of you to get the best grade you possibly can and to reach the highest level in your subsequent careers. You never know one day we may be looking at you as a political case study! Good luck.
