    Course Entry requirements

    Specification: OCR H573
    Subject entry requirements: GCSE grade 6 or higher in English and Religious Studies if taken. If Religious Studies is not taken at GCSE, other humanities subjects will be considered.

    The A Level course develops transferable skills in analysis, evaluation and persuasive writing. In 2017 there were 23,856 A Level entries, more than double the number recorded in 2003. Despite the recent changes to A Levels, such as linearity and reducing options from 4 to 3 subjects, Philosophy and Ethics remains the fastest growing Humanities subject at A Level.

    A-Level involves studying three components, namely Philosophy, Ethics and Hinduism. There is no requirement that students must have studied RS at GCSE level.

    Some of the ultimate questions that we look at include: What is real? What is truth? Is there any such thing as right or wrong? Do I see the world the same as other people see it? Is there a point to life? What does it mean to be happy? What is proof? Can I know anything at all? How did everything begin? What is a good life? Does God exist? Is reality an illusion? Studies suggest that graduates in Theology, Religious Studies and Philosophy are highly employable, with many ending up working in careers such as Law, Journalism, Marketing and Management.
