Should I choose Politics and Society?

Is Leaving Cert Politics and Society a good subject or is it difficult to get high marks in? I like English and debating... would it be good for someone like that? Thanks

Yes, I was the same, very much into debating but it will give you great points to use. It will also improve your essay writing skills. If you catch key points early you will do very well in it.

Yes! It is my favourite subject. There is a 20% project which may involve an interview with a politician or something like that. There are short questions worth 50 marks, documents based questions worth 150 marks in total and 2 essays worth 100 marks each. The course covers a wide number of topics like sustainable development, human rights, patriarchy etc. It goes well with English, history and geography if you are into those sort of subjects.

There are also "key thinkers" that you need to know about, kind of like learning poets for english. You will use about 3 of them in your essays to prove your points. I suggest going to this website https://www.folens.ie/books-and-programmes/post-primary/theories-in-action/digital-resources/all and flicking through the theorist book so you get an idea.
