You next exam is tomorrow? Yes revision is probably a good idea! Good luck and let me know how it goes
It certainly sounds like your A-Level phil was better though! Oh yes I did the Critical thinking A-Level but I got on way better with it at university, though not sure why. Hahaha and yeah, tis true that the nutters all spring out of the woodwork when a religious debate surfaces
Hmmm I think we started with Descartes and his 'are we really here?' debate with the Evil Demon Theory I quite enjoyed that bit. We did critical thinking which was the only bit I was actually good at :P The rest was a lot of ethics, morality and free will. I think it would have been a better course if the seminars weren't full of Kant-wannabes who liked to argue for the hell of it (to the point where eventually they had all changed their opinions by the end of the hour anyway!) The actual debates themselves were very interesting, I just don't think I fit into the right type of student for philosophy Which bits have you done at A-Level? Do you think you will take it as a minor in your first year?
Ooer philosophy! Did that as a minor in first year :s Yes, I never really understood what metaphysics actually was Well soon you'll be free and then onto the history for good!
I'm doing an economic comparison of late medieval England and Scotland, though not entirely sure yet how I'm going to narrow it down. Though I now have the interesting task of teaching myself macroeconomics over the summer How are you feeling about your last two exams?
Haha yeah I can imagine you'd do quite well on that!
Um I think compulsory modules in the first year are like an introduction to literary analysis, the beginnings of the english language, introduction to drama (which I'm dreading) and then there's subsidary modules which look quite fun - things like creative writing, shakespeare, the viking world etc. It gets more specific in Yr2, looking at particular authors and time periods and genres, so I think that looks really good!
What's involved in your course? I've always thought it sounded quite interesting - quite a niche subject! Is it anything to do with English language or is it more history?
Half way there then! Glad to hear they are going well I'm good thanks, finished my exams a couple weeks ago and now thankfully no modern history ever again so I can emphasise with your joy! Just getting started with my dissertation now which I'm looking forward to
Hey! Have you finished your exams? If so, how did they go?
Sorry, never got round to replying to you. It's all cooled down now thankfully - I was starting to wish I'd never posted that bloody poem ahahah. Yeah we had to cover two topics per exam and we had two exams. What exam board were you on? I was AQA.
And whatcha mean? As in at uni?
I love biology but I hadn't realised how much Chemistry was involved in it! So I do struggle with it more than my other subjects.
Ah right - I think you're in the minority, most English students seem to prefer the literature side! I do combined so it's a bit of everything - I think I do prefer the literature, but you're right about the sort of technical side to language. It is very interesting.
Ah we did philosophy of religion too! I only did philosophy as an AS this year but I loved it - nothing better than a good debate! We did all of the epistemology stuff, Political philosophy, God and the World and Tolerance this year. Tolerance was interesting, like all of the paradoxes within tolerance, but it was definitely the religious element of philosophy that I preferred.

Straight, but not very good at it...
Don't believe in it
