    Hey
    I'm currently a GCSE student and interested in taking RS and English Lit at A-Level!
    Initially, I wasn't sure on whether I'd study English Lit or Lang but a bit of researched told me that universities prefer literature. However, I'm now torn on whether to study RS or Philosophy. They both seem quite similar. Were you also interested in Philosophy? What's it like studying RS, is it hard at the moment?

    P.S. Sorry for the bombardment of questions.

    No Problem!

    English Lit at A level is fantastic and I really, really enjoy it - to the point where I'm doing English Lit at degree level, so consider me biased

    I never got the choice between RS and Philosophy. We do Philosophy and Ethics units, and the Philosophy side is definitely my favourite. The course is generally good, the grades are much easier to achieve than in subjects such as English and History - although the AS exam on my board was 3 hours long.

    The content at AS is quite large but the essays are really easy to write, in short. A2 is the same really - finding it very manageable and so much easier than my other subjects. Would recommend it!
