    Hi guys this year I'm taking A2 Philosophy and Ethics. My friend who did the course previously has informed me that in A2 you have a choice of what topics you study for the exam. Can any of you confirm this for me, detailing how many topics you need to revise for for each exam, and which ones are preferable in terms of learning? Thank you

    I never took that subject but I think the specification does quite explain the choice of topics. Have a look at the A2 Assessment units.

    Are you on Edexcel for this? I'll assume you are, so for Unit 3 you get an option of doing either the ontological argument or religious experience they will both come up in the exam so you do get to choose (I'd say learn both just in case) For ethics you have to learn natural moral law and deontology but I'm not sure whether you get to choose I think you do because there is no way one can do both essays in one sitting, that's just too much.
    I don't know anything for unit 4 though, hope I helped

    I am doing A2 RS edexcel this year. I think it depends on which sections your tutors have chosen to do but I know that for my exam the form is like this:

    Ontological argument
    or
    Criticisms/ Critiques of religious belief ( which would evidently include atheism)

    AND

    Religious language e.g language games, myths etc...

    AND

    One question on the New Testamennt

    Hope this helps
