Hi all. As you will know the old Pearson/Edexcel specification has now been replaced by the new Politics (2017) specification. Much of the material here will continue to be relevant. However there has been a substantial amount of content added by the exam board including voting behaviour, the history of the franchise, media influences on elections and so on.
My dilemma revolves around the following fact: for the coming year many students will still be following the old spec either as A1 (one year students) or as A2 students perhaps retaking one or both of the legacy AS units. To restructure the site now would be to deprive these students of the resources available to them here in the format under which they will be examined.
I am therefore considering a number of options. In my view the easiest and least time consuming way to proceed would be to simply add a new drop down menu called new spec and proceed to populate that with content specifically geared to the new spec, whilst retaining the current structure to allow those in transition to continue using the site normally.
So, in sum, there will be a lot of changes here, but only over the next 12-18 months. If anyone has any thoughts on this please let me know.
Kind regards, Dennis.
