Will i be able to/at a disadvantage if I take philosophy and ethics alevel (WJEC,eduqas) without doing religious studies gcse.I did short course RS so would i be ok? If anyone does philosophy and ethics/religious studies alevel do you think it would be harder without the full gcse or does it not cross over that much?

Many school only do short course GCSE and then A level - what do your teachers say?

In theory yes. I did a full RS GCSE and my only ALEVEL classmate for RS did the part time degree which is mandatory. I can't speak for an ethics course, but I do know they let me do a business ALEVEL even though I didn't do the GCSE.
Provided you have good grades your school should have no resson to reject you, but you should ask before applying.
Wishing you the best!

I adored it! I got to look at Muslims in the UK, Psychology of Religion, Religious experiences, and Life Death And Beyond. I'm currently doing my undergraduate in the Study of Religion I enjoyed it so much!

You can do RS without doing it at GCSE. RS is not challenging enough that you would need prior knowledge, trust me, I know. Most would just ask for a 6 in English Lang or Lit.

Thank you - do you take RS (I would be doing philosophy and ethics - but I guess they are kind of similar) do you find the workload ok and is is easy to get a good grade.

Yeah as long as your teachers are good.
Unfortunately my philosophy teacher took a year and a half of school as he was ill and my ethics teacher went on maternity leave so we basically have no teachers
