SQA’s Higher Politics qualification gives learners the opportunity to study important political concepts, theories, ideologies and systems through Scottish, British and international contexts. Learners compare different political systems, evaluate the factors that impact on the electoral performance of political parties, and develop knowledge and understanding of how different political ideologies, systems and parties resolve the timeless pursuit of power, authority and legitimacy.
