As an A-Level philosopher, you will be grappling with questions that many people take for granted:
- What is knowledge?
- What is reality?
- What is morality?
- What is beauty?
The skills used in Philosophy (clear thinking and strong ability to read, interpret and argue your case) are very desirable to employers and university admissions tutors in all subjects.
Entry requirements: At least a Grade 5 in English Language.
Qualities and skills required: You will be assessed on your ability to think, to understand, to analyse and, in the final instance, to commit those thoughts to paper and create a cogent and plausible argument. It is therefore important that you enjoy reading, like intelligent discussion and debate, and will be able to develop your mind to think clearly and communicate your ideas effectively.
