Hello anyone who reads this.
I was wondering if I should do RS or sociology for GCSE.
I would like to do philosophy along with history and politics (which I have already taken).
Would RS be important for philosophy A-level.
Also I have not taken a language and I am attracted mandarin as I already know Japanese kanji (Chinese characters with Japanese sounds but the same meaning).
If you could give me any advice then that would be great.

For me, I will choose sociology instead of RS because I don't believe in any religious. Btw I can speak, write, read and listen to Mandarin so if you need help you can find me.
Hope this help you.

RS is better for philosophy A level but not essential. However, as some sixth forms only offer RS and you may find yourself at a different one than you currently plan, RS GCSE may be the way to go.

I think you should go forward with RS- you don’t have to be part of a religion to do well in it it just touches on some ideas/theories which can go hand in hand with philosophy in fact I remember having lots of philosophical discussions during my RE lessons so I believe it’s better to take it up.

Also definitely take up mandarin especially if you’re already familiar with it- it’s a subject that’s growing in demand and it’s quite valuable for your future to have a qualification in Mandarin! Hope this helped, best wishes 😊

This is an atrocious way of looking at it. Since when did you HAVE to be religious to partake in RS? A big majority of theological philosophers are atheists.

RS is an amazing subject and really widens your view and Density of society, all while improving your essay writing.

Thank you for the reply's,
My last question would be, can I drop 1 or 2 subjects in the beging of may year 10.
I know it might depend on the school but if you have any information on it then that would be very helpful.
The subjects I want to drop are drama and possibly art for mandarin.
Thanks again ☺️
