    What is philosophy at uni like? Is it similar to the A Level? Should I do it alongside another subject?

    You study philosophy in much more detail than you did at A level. To get a better idea of the subjects you are likely to cover take a look at the first year modules at your target universities. As to whether you should do it with another subject, that depends on your tastes. Philosophy matches well with various other subjects such as psychology and the famous PPE courses.

    I do joint honours philosophy and psychology. It makes for a great, balanced learning experience imo, especially since philosophy is such a diverse subject.

    Philosophy at university has more critical thinking than in A level, if I remember correctly, but it's also a lot more fun and engaging
