I am doing As levels this year and have picked philosophy as one of my options. However I have heard philosophy has a rather dodgy mark scheme and the raw mark to ums rate for some exams is ridiculous (40 out of 60 = an A on one exam). Is philosophy much harder than philosophy of religion and ethics and does philosophy really have a harsh mark scheme?

I took Philosophy at higher level which will be slightly different. However, the course was very diverse, interesting and challenging! I loved it. There were 4 main topics one being "metaphysics" covering religion in terms of God. It was the easiest part of the course, always picked up full marks. Therefore I'd say - for something easier go for religious studies but for something a little more challenging yet a lot more interesting just go for philosophy. However, I can't be sure how similar As level philosophy and higher philosophy courses are so don't take my word for it

If guess that, having done it, philosophy and ethics may be slightly easier because of the ethical theories, but I can't imagine there would be much difference

I couldn't really say which is more harder than the other as I only did RE: Philosophy of Religion and Religious Ethics. I thought the workload was intense and the concepts of the philosophical side was harder than the application of ethical theories. However, I believe what made it the hardest A-level I chose was how to structure your essays. A2 was completely different to AS.
