Is philosophy and ethics boring?
I personally found it very interesting, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. It's one of those things that's fascinating if you're interested, dull as ditchwater if you're not.

I did this subject as an AS level. It was quite interesting actually, full of debate about real issues in society.

If you're into that kind of thing you will enjoy it.

What you learn in school/college is boring. The actual subjects themselves are very interesting.

If your other A levels satisfy entry requirements into medicine then it will not help or hinder your application.

Although it does have a few links to the ethics involved in medical practice such as euthanasia and abortion.

No, nothing like it. It's a lot more in-depth for one thing.

I did the GCSE but then opted for religious studies at AS/A level instead because it sounds less like a weak subject but for GCSE that doesn't matter.

The GCSE opened my mind to a lot of ethical issues like abortion, euthanasia and war. The other half of the course was about religions and their beliefs which was less interesting but at least now I know.
