Critical Thinking. Yay or Nay?
I had an A-Level options assembly today, and was told about how the school offers critical thinking as a fifth AS subject. I always thought that this would be a very silly option to take, but the teacher presenting made a few points which I was rather interested in.
1) It only takes up 4 periods in the 80 period two-week time-table (other subjects take up 14)
2) It compliments subjects which require thinking outside of the box (I'm doing Philosophy)
3) It helps you with TSA's for Oxbridge
Now I have always wanted to do PPE at Oxford, and would do anything I can really to obtain that dream. Will Critical Thinking really be of any use to me, if only to help me in my TSA? I know that it won't count in my potential offer, and I know that it is a regarded as a non-subject. But yeh, will this help me at all?
