I do 3 A levels, I’m a week into them. If I change from English Literature to Philosophy will I have to change my other classes? I’ve settled really well and I’m worried that I’d have to have a new timetable where I have to find new classes so that philosophy can fit into it.

it depends if Philosophy clashes with one of your other subjects. If its a straight swap or it fits into your free periods then it will be fine. If it does clash, you'll have to move into other classes for your subjects to accommodate your decision .

Should be completely fine.

As an aside, you could consider doing A level Religious Studies instead of Philosophy. I always encourage this to students because it's much, much easier all the while being extremely interesting. Most of it really is common sense. It has a lot of philosophy in it as well (ethics and morality) and, in fact, it usually goes by the name of A level Religious Studies and Ethics.

I'd highly encourage RS just because of how poorly so many students do in Philosophy and how much easier it is.

Thank you, yeah I’m definitely considering Religious Studies after what you’ve said about it, I’ll have to talk to the college and see what I can do, applications to change subject start on Monday and hopefully I’ll be first in line to transfer to Religious Studies, I’ve done some research on it and it does sound very interesting, again, thank you

You're most welcome!

It truly is a fantastic subject and I really wish it was more widely taught in schools. And, you'll hopefully be in line for a fantastic grade as well. :rambo:
