Hey,
I just started my As and I am studying Rs OCR. Personally I found that Rs was very interesting and there are new elements to it compared to the Gcse course. We also study Philosophy and Ethics in rs and philosophy is probably my favourite part of it.
You should choose which one you enjoy the most and which one will also help you.
Hope I helped

No. Unless you're an abstract thinker it will be very difficult to grasp some of the concepts - let alone apply them into an essay. If your school is doing OCR then good luck to you as Year 13 you will essentially be studying A level physics (quantum mechanics is part of the spec).

I found OCR RS difficult because there is just SO MUCH content, our teacher didn't even manage to get through it all. Philosophy and ethics was super interesting but Development in Christian Thought was challenging and I found most of it a bit boring. I also think the exams should be 2 and a half hours - don't think 2 hours is enough time to write 3 40 mark essays.

If you're really interested in it though, go for it. Debating in class is fun and as I said ethics/philosophy is really interesting

Wait, what? I did OCR RS and there wasn't any quantum physics lol
