Philosophy A Level A/A* TipsWatch
I recently got my Philosophy AS result back and I got a B, which isn't a deal breaker but I was hoping for an A* overall. I also was predicted an A for AS and got As in all of my tests throughout the year. So I'm a bit gutted.
Anyway, this year I've decided to turn my grade around and try to get an A/A*. I was just wondering if any Philosophers had any tips on how to get top grades at A2?
Also does anyone have any good extra reading/philosophical texts for ethics and philosophy of mind?
Finally, what is the consensus on the Philosophy text books? (I don't have a particularly high opinion myself but I'm wondering if I'm just using the 'wrong textbook' and that there's a better one out there)
Thanks in advance.
I used the blue one as well and I thought it was rushed ngl. It had some v. bad typos - e.g. spelt The Meditations as the Mediations. It also got a priori and a posteriori mixed up at times which was not helpful with empiricism.
I definitely will look into getting those texts thanks.
Ah, strange I didn't notice the mistakes ahah.
But as far as I can see the A2 one is pretty good - make sure to combine it with lesson/teacher notes though.
Are you applying for anything philosophy related at uni?
