I'm considering taking A level philosophy and I am wondering what it's like at A level. How hard is it and is it well liked at universities? I am also considering classical civilizations, history and English literature, how well would philosophy go with some of these subjects?

i study PPE and the director of student experience started the first philosophy lecture with "now, we know some of you will have experience of philosophy but sometimes it's easier to forget some of what you've been taught because schools...they don't always teach it right"

but of course if you're not studying degree level philosophy, that may no be relevant. in that case it's probably a helpful a level

Philosophy is as acceptable as any other subject to admissions tutors; whether it will be useful after starting a degree including philosophy is debatable (see the above comment). It would be a reasonable subject to take in any combination with the other ones you've noted. I can't say how hard it is, as aside from not having taken it myself, "difficulty" of subjects is fairly relative. I wouldn't imagine it's any harder than the others you've noted, if you are good at the general skills used in those (essay writing, critical reading, etc).
