Is A level philosophy hard?Watch
Depends on your teacher I had 2 teachers who are very helpful I’m predicted a B but I’m getting a C at the moment because we have no grace boundaries due to cancelling of exams so my C could be a B but no ones knows yet
I teach it and it's usually good fun. We set a lot of essays to get practice in, so be mindful that this may be a factor at your school, too. But the content is interesting and engaging g for the most part, and most students find they can really develop their thinking, writing, and arguing skills and enjoy it along the way.
That's cool that you're teaching that. I'd be interested in which part of the content you think is difficult to drum up interest/engagement! For me it tends to be the 'reason as a source of knowledge' topic - innate knowledge and intuition/deduction thesis. Bit of an antiquated debate in many ways (except the waves of doubt part)... Also I know you have an interest in eastern philosophy - were you not tempted to teach religious studies A level with the Buddhism option instead? I decided to teach that to myself and start tutoring it and I've found it great for interest/engagement.
