However, this subject will require you to work hard in order to grasp difficult concepts, pay close attention to detail and present and analyse complex arguments. It would suit those with an inquisitive or thoughtful nature, as well as anybody interested in strengthening their mental abilities and considering questions that have captivated mankind for centuries. The course requires good essay writing skills, and a high level of reading comprehension.

At AS level, the course concentrates on a number of key philosophical themes, intended to provide students with a broad introduction to Philosophy. At A2, students will specialise further, selecting two themes to study in depth and focusing on philosophical problems through the study of a key text.

UK Open Learning will provide you with a list of examination centres but it is entirely your responsibility to find a centre which will accept you as an external candidate. In some cases you should be prepared to travel to another town or city to take your exams.
