    Hi there!

    If anybody is currently doing or has done A-Level Philosophy, I would really appreciate some general tips to do well and all that since it's a new subject that I'll be starting next month

    (I'll be studying the AQA 2176 to be more specific)

    Practise questions. I can't stress this enough but the exam is very unique and the way it is marked is very rough, so practising the questions is vital. The 15 markers are very evaluation heavy and the content needs to be spot on as you are negative marked, so they'll take marks off you for incorrect premises and minor mistakes, such as 'waffling'. So yes, practise makes perfect when it comes to philosophy. It's not one of those subjects where simply memorising the content will do, it's very much in the 9 and 15 markers about technique.
