    I just started year 12 and I had chosen to do critical thinking. After a couple of lessons, I feel like I haven't learned anything and the teacher sets a lot of homework.

    I don't know whether I should continue doing it or drop it and focus on my other subjects, do any of you have advice as to whether CT will actually help me and if any of you have experience with it, what was it like.

    Thank you

    What do you want to study at uni? What do entry requirements seem to say about it? I know that for some courses and some unis, critical thinking is excluded/not accepted as a subject in offers.

    AAA grades at A2 level. Students must offer three A2 level subjects which should normally include Chemistry and Biology. Applicants undertaking Science GCE A levels where a separate practical endorsement is reported will require a pass in this element. General Studies, Critical Thinking and Further Mathematics are not acceptable at A2 Level.
    Looked up Cardiff as an example, CT will not count to your offer. Would drop it tbh, no need to do that kind of extra work and see 0 return.

    For most Russell Group universities, none of them care about General Studies or Critical Thinking. I'd say to drop it.

    If you're considering medicine or law then CT can be very helpful in doing well in the UKCAT and LNAT exams...but wont usually be directly included in any offer requirements.
