Religious Studies A-level (OCR) at Chichester College
Religious Studies is a well-respected academic subject through which you will encounter the ideas of some of the most important thinkers of our cultural history; from Plato and Aristotle to Descartes and Kant. You will develop skills in critical thinking and the ability to construct and analyse philosophical arguments. Religious Studies will sit well with any A Level programme, perhaps complementing humanities and arts subjects particularly.
You will study 3 themes: Philosophy of Religion, Religion and Ethics and Development of Religious Thoughts. There are 3 exams. Each theme will be assessed in an equally weighted exam (33.3% each).
No previous knowledge or study of Religious Studies is expected or necessary. Students are required to have 5 GCSEs A*-C including English Language.
This is a 2 year linear A Level where you are examined on the whole syllabus at the end of the second year. You will be assessed at the end of year one to see if you can progress to year two.
Related degrees which students can go on to study include religious studies, theology, philosophy and ethics. Religious Studies remains an important specialist discipline for those interested in primary or secondary teaching.
