    There's a 1 hour slot at 2:00 - 3:00 on a Wednesday afternoon. Both options are voluntary, I'd like to do both, but naturally, I can't be in two places at once, despite my holiness.

    So er, which one?

    Critical thinking is a pile of poo, thankfully I never had to do it, so the debate society.

    couldn't critical thinking, since it is eventually for a qualification, be learnt seperately, whereas the Debating society is something that would require attendance, and would not be quotable by a qualification?

    No! try reading it again foolio!
    I'm siding with debating because you could easily teach yourself CT without going to the classes. maybe it would be useful to attend the occasional one, of course, but that way you could do both!

    well...i was assuming it was tested in a similar manner to most exams - i.e. externally.
    Then - it makes it tricky...you could always try finding another debating society outside of school....

    CT is not hard, I daresay you could buy a book on it and take the exam. Even if you cannot however, I would probably choose debating anyway.

    Go to the debating thang, then teach yourself to think critically, failing that just sit the critical thinking papers at the end of the year regardless of what you do

    HearTheThunder, do you have any degree courses in mind? Debating will look good for humanities/Arts courses (on your UCAS).
