Should I take AS philosophy along with my GCSE's?Watch
1) Taking the philosophy Exam in year 11, and doing an EPQ
2) Studying philosophy with no exam and doing an EPQ
3) Doing just the EPQ
My teacher says I'd have to put in 7 hours a week for the AS philosophy and 3 hours per week for the EPQ outside of school. Will my GCSE's suffer, or would I be able to be an A*/A student at GCSE and get an A at AS philosophy and an A* in the EPQ? I'm doing 10/11 GCSE's this year.
I don't know about you personally but it is doable. You could regret it either way - it just depends on wether you're willing to take that risk. If it were me I'd want to do Phil AS without the EPQ but I'm guessing that's not an option?
