    I am studying English Language, English literature and philosophy at A level. I
    picked it arbitrarily, after not being sure of what else to pick alongside my English A
    levels. I don't have any spceific plans for the A level really, as I am planning to study Japanese at university! The most interesting aspect of the A level is the arguments and discussions we have in class over different topics, like the existence of God, or do the things I see around me really exist. I don't really like our exam, (I do AQA) which is 3 hours long! Also some of the texts we have to study are quite difficult to read and understand, so you have to do alot of research on these. Overall,
    philosophy is actually a great subject to study, if you are up to alot of essay writing
    and reading.

    I do the AQA pure course so I did epistemology and philosophy of religion, and this year I'll be doing philosophy of the mind and ethics.
    I picked it because it's the foundation of many things and makes you a well rounded, challenged and thoughtful student. The course was also interesting to me.
    It helps me with my other subjects so much in terms of analysis and writing because it's so intense and challenging.
    I loved religious language and theories of realism/anti realism last year. The essay writing is great.
    Literally nothing is uninteresting.
    I love philosophy ngl.
