Religious Studies: Theology, Philosophy & Ethics (OCR)
Advanced Level Religious Studies aims to develop an understanding of the principle methods by which religions and spirituality are studied. We aim to foster an interest in and enthusiasm for a rigorous study of religion.
A minimum of grade B at GCSE and grade B in GCSE English are recommended. An ability to write in-depth critical essays is also required. Adherence to a belief system [religion] is not a requirement or even an advantage.
In Year 13, the A Level examination consists of 2 x 3hr papers.
Theology is one of the fastest growing choices for undergraduate studies. It is highly respected in the world of employment, valued by the public sector and caring professions as well as highly rewarded in the spheres of law, advertising, news/current affairs and media/ communications. A very suitable foundation for ethical reflection especially in the progressive world of scientific/technological advancements.
