The Course

Why Study Philosophy, Ethics and Religious Studies?

This A level will enable you to develop insights into areas of knowledge, belief and thought central to an understanding of the modern world. Through a study of philosophy, ethics and the world’s major religions, you will be equipped with a range of knowledge and skills which help them to make sense of contemporary events.

At A1 you will be introduced to a number of themes which provide a broad introduction into the study of religion. A1 has two units:

  • Unit 1 is called Foundations and currently you will study two topics: Philosophy of Religion and New Testament studies.
  • Unit 2 is called Investigations and allows you the scope to develop your own ideas on one topic; you only need to answer one question on this paper.

A2 also comprises two units:

  • Unit 3 is called Developments and you will study two topics: Philosophy of Religion and the New Testament.
  • Unit 4 is called Implications – you will consider three set texts and their implications for the consequences of holding certain opinions, views or beliefs, including your own; how a particular belief or value could affect other people, either for good or ill; how other people’s lives might be affected if a certain belief were widely held or a certain value widely applied.

Typically you will need 5 GCSEs, including two at grade 5/B (or above) and three at grade 4/C (or above) including maths and English.
