    I know many ppl have decided to take up AS critical thinking as an extra AS in yr 13, but I was just wondering wot exam board u plan 2 do it with and hence if you can recommend me one. I would have liked to do AQA coz they have past papers online but they don't offer it. My school doesn't even know wot it is so i will have 2 do it on my own but i don't think u can have lessons 4 it neway?

    It would also be helpful if you have already done this AS and you could just give a brief summary of it.

    Only OCR offer it. Our whole sixth form was made to do it for AS, and I got a B. Most people I know got B/C/D, only one person I know got an A. We had lessons for it, but most people didn't turn up most the time, hense the lack of people getting A's. Although, having said that, you can't really be taught it. There's a book you can buy, I havent read it but I heard it is helpful. A lot of unis look favourably upon it and it doesnt involve much work so I would suggest taking it (even if it is unbelievably boring)

    The Cambridge board offers AS Thinking Skills, which i suppose is quite similar to Critical Thinking.

    The only problem is that Thinking Skills means that you have to do some maths stuff. I'd advise sticking with OCR Critical Thinking.
