I think it's AQA? I'm not sure. I do really love it because it's such a unique subject. We learn things you wouldn't touch or think about in others. For example, if you study sociology there's a little bit of psychology. They both overlap. But with philosophy, it is like no other.

But there are students in my class who hate the subject and that is because it is hella confusing. If you don't revise, then the stuff isn't going to make sense in class. Sometimes philosophers talk in a weird way, they like to complicate simple things. But if you actually revise and understand the work, it's really interesting and not that hard.

I'm studying two topics right now. Epistemology and moral philosophy. So far in epistemology we have learnt three theories of perception. And another topic we've just recently started is reason as a source of knowledge.

Then in moral philosophy we look at theories of what is a good act, good decision, bad act, bad decision etc.

Unless you want to teach philosophy, there aren't any direct career links. What you look for in that case is transferable skills like writing well, taking in and assessing large amounts of conflicting information in a quick, methodical manner, advancing your reasoning skills, ability to speak and write persuasively etc.

There are aspects that are useful for government and social policy, but you'd need other experience to marry up with the skills developed in philosophy.

Well it depends on what you class as "good". But I wouldn't do a philosophy degree to get a good job...
