Honestly I'm a bit confused regarding People and Politics and just wondering if I have the right idea on it? It's worked for me so far but I guess it may be nervousness thats now causing doubts.

I'm basically wondering what kind of questions can they ask you in the module, what do they expect you to do?

And for those that are memorising essays, how is your essay split up and what does it mainly address?

I basically understand it as analysing/writing about the effects of the political on the personal, and how that is represented in your text in various forms.

This is the essay plan of my essay and I was wondering if this addresses this module (People & Politics) needs?

My first paragraph mainly deals with the form of politics in BNW and its interactions with individuals, community, through what means it establishes/achieves its goals. And with somewhat how this is reflected with character and trait example (There is a bunch regarding symbolism, allusion, juxtaposition in this paragraph. But a lack of direct quotes maybe)

Second garaph has more of a focus on the personals interactions with the political, what exact effect the political has on the 'personal'. And its effect on the very notion of individuality/ism, and how this is portrayed through, how this is achieved etc. (Clash is presented through John the Savage in the World State, convo with Mond worked really well for this).

Related text paragraphs are similar but for my related.

you can mention the savage reservation in opposition to the World State, how its initially perceived freedom isn't all that free, since the religious practices are retrospectively very common with how the World State controls, albeit its not by human administration, but by nature.

For what it's worth, I don't know my raw mark for this essay specifically, but I had no mention of the savage reservation in my essay last year and got a 94 external mark. It's not necessarily about covering everything in the text, but extrapolating concepts from the text and presenting them in your essay through techniques to support your argument/thesis.
