AS/A Level Religious Studies Course
Exam board: WJEC
AS Level: 2120QS – A Level: 1120QS
Religious Studies is for students who wish to study the fundamental nature of the philosophical and ethical arguments central to all religions. This subject requires strong academic discipline, and ability, where knowledge, understanding and written skills are developed alongside an enquiring, critical and reflective approach. This is a very challenging and rewarding subject that requires genuine interest, commitment and the essential need to read and assess complex material independently. There will be an opportunity to engage in discussions and students will be encouraged to view issues from all perspectives.
Religious Studies is a subject with wide academic credibility and complements other Humanities A Level subjects. It provides a strong foundation for a range of degrees in the Arts and Humanities, including Politics, History, English, Philosophy, History of Art and Theology. The critical skills developed in this subject will be invaluable in any higher education course. Religious Studies is also a life-enhancing subject and allows for a great deal of personal reflective development.
To study A Level Religious Studies you need a minimum of five GCSEs at grade 4-9 / C or above including English Language and Mathematics.
