Is Philosophy and Ethics a good a level for me to take? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,
    I have been thinking about what a levels to choose to do a degree in computer science and/or a science based course - would philosophy be a good a level to take as a combination with (as an example) maths and chemistry? I have an interest in taking it, and people have been recommending I do at least one "essay" based subject.


    If you think you'll enjoy it and it will give you a break from science based subjects then I'd go for it as it broadens your options. However don't do it for the sake of having a larger range and if you have a clear idea at the moment about doing a science based degree then I might consider doing further maths
