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

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Tank Girl now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

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
