Reading Sentinel 1a SLC data using Python

I understand that this might not be exactly relevant forum for asking this question but if anyone could help or redirect me to a relevant forum it would mean a lot and highly appreciated.

I am a beginner in RS and GIS. Please excuse me for any unexpected behavior.

I am reading Sentinel 1a SLC data using GDAL package in Python. I am able to access Metadata from manifest.SAFE file and intensity from .tif files but I am more interested in fetching the i and q values. Can anyone suggest me how can I fetch those?

You could use snappy instead of GDAL.
snappy makes SNAP usable with Python.
