    Although I'm still in year 10 and don't have to think about college till next year, from both friends, and the websites of sixth forms, I've been thinking that I'd possibly like to take English Literature, Music, French, Philosophy and Classical Civilizations.
    Can anyone currently, or having previously taken these as/a2 levels give me some insight into what philosphy and classical civilazations are like as a subject? As I don't really have any knowledge on either subject, they just seem an interesting course to learn.

    Philosophy is meant to be a superb a-level, but you need the ability to think freely about things and not necessarily in the conventional way. I think classical civilisations sounds like the history of social culture.

    Both sound like they contain a lot of writing, but if you can find out what exam board you'kll be doing them with, you could always take a peekaboo at the specification. If you keep this thread alive you'll probably find someone who takes them. Sure you dont want to take any sciences? They get really meaty at a level or maths? try posting in the special exam seection under english or history or something. Or search??

    ask somebody whos two years above you who does it
    hope that helps

    I could take a science I suppose :/ i'm glad i don't have to decide anytime soon though
    yeah, maybe posting in the right section would be a good idea :rolleyes:
    it took me about an hour to realise how to start a thread, because I didn't see the icon, and I only saw that in this section :p:
