Philosophy AS/A2 at Christ The King College
There is no specific pathway leading to philosophy or qualification you will need. Literacy will complement the written aspects of the course (such as the final examination), whereas if your strengths are in mathematical or scientific areas this analyticity and knowledgebase may assist you in the reasoning aspects. Determination and an enquiring mind with the ability to reflect on important issues suit the subject well.
Philosophy is assessed by a single, three-hour examination in which you will answer all questions, demonstrating: knowledge of the key ideas; how thinkers’ various theories relate to one another; and an ability to evaluate arguments in logical, well-structured essays.
