What A-Levels are you doing? Watch
The AS is really interesting. I can't compare workload really as I took it 2 years early but I think that to do it you really need to find it interesting as there's a lot of subject matter to learn as well as all the reading around that you really need for the exam.
I did AQA but I didn't really use revision books. I did buy the Nelson Thornes book for the Ethics module but I did't end up using it as much as I thought I would; I mainly used the internet and my notes made in lesson time. In terms of reading around, I read 'The Puzzle of God' by Peter Vardy, 'The Bible From Scratch' by Simon Jenkins, 'Philosophy Made Simple' by Richard H. Popkin and Avrum Stroll which had a couple of helpful chapters but wasn't particularly relevent to the subject matter, 'Principles of Political Economy' by J.S. Mill which gave you a good insight into Mills views but wasn't nessesary, 'Freud For Beginners' by Richard Appignanesi which was really helpful and 'Ethics For Beginners' by Dave Robinson and Chris Garratt. The 'For Beginners' series is really helpul actually; it uses comic strips and lots of cartoons and things and is great for breaking down a subject - they are also really cheap which helps! Hope this is helpful x
I'm in Year 11(sorry for intruding) and I was thinking of Math, Physics, Economics, French, but I am stuck between choosing Chemistry or Further Math. I don't have a very clear career path, so most "valued" a-levels would help. I did AQA Further Maths GCSE, and I'm predicted an A* at GCSE Maths.
