What A levels benefits the most in terms of intellect, reasoning and debating ability Watch

    • Thread Starter

    My question is which A level benefits you the most in terms of developing debating skills, analysis skills and an argumentative nature?

    drop your recommendations down and a reason why

    You get to study a lot of controversial topics and opinions and if you don't feel outraged at half of what you're reading you aren't doing it right! Especially in relation to government policies.Then there' a lot of analysis and evaluation required in the essays so it's fantastic for ensuring you have a logical thought process leading to your conclusions. Then even in a small class you tend to get a diverse range of opinions so there'll always be someone you can have a debate with.
