Hi everyone,

I am dropping out of one of my A level subjects (biology) and thinking of continuing on to do philosophy/philosophy and ethics. I'm not sure whether to do OCR or AQA as I am teaching myself. could anyone help me understand which one has more recourses for past papers/practice questions/workbooks and which one is more difficult?

Thank you

AQA Philosophy is more difficult, but better training for your mind. OCR religious studies will make you learn about a religion like christianity, which is super interesting if you're into religion or atheism. It also involves more psychology and sociology. Philosophy is straight and focused brutal pushing your mind through a meat grinder of logic training.

The resources online are pretty similar.

I do AQA Philosophy and personally I think it's hard enough doing it at college, but to self-teach it...!
