    I would have suggested you to just choose one or two A levels with BTEC which is equivalent to 3 A levels.

    Maybe you can read some example personal statements. That way you get to know what others write about.

    Besides that, did you read any books regarding the subject? Maybe you can work from that?

    Well, thats an interesting one, if you want to study philosophy you must know certain things about it already I guess. Im a philosophy student and things we cover in A level include
    -Cosmological, ontological, teleological arguments
    -Natural Law
    -The problem of evil ( Augustinian and Irenian theodicies)
    Talk about Buddhism, this one is interesting because its a whole new way of looking at the world.
    Say how religion or religious language has affected our world since day 1. ( Plato, Socrates etc..)
    Talk about what made you realise you wanted to study philosophy
    Hope that was helpful
