So I really love the debate side of things and my GCSE predicted grade last year was A*, however this year I've gone down slightly as I can't seem to cope with the exam structures (I'm with edexcel also). It's the rigid structure of 'you must do four brief answers' that I don't get along with, I'd rather write essays and explain theories and balanced arguments in a bit of a more loose way like you do in English etc. The content isn't an issue - it's the GCSE structure I hate. Does this change at A level, as I'm considering doing philosophy and ethics? Thank you!

The questions are longer more essay based than GCSE. GCSE is significantly easy compared to a level RS or philosophy, which isn't about your personal opinions or bible quotes any more it's about philosophical theories, ethics and philosophers themselves.
I'd suggest Philosophy over RS as it's really interesting and challenging. Its a 2,5,9 and 15 marker which is really good considering how hard the actual spec is.
