    Hi all, have just got to the end of my first year with AQA and y10 will be sitting Unit 2 exam next week. I now need to decide whether to go for Unit 3 or 4 next year. Whilst I'm quite attracted to the philosophy unit and think it would be a good selling point for A level it does look challenging in comparision. Anyone got any thoughts on this?

    I think unit 3 fits in better with unit 2 as they are both based on ethics. However, I agree that unit 4 may be better preparation for A level although this of course depends on which A level spec you teach. Purely as a GCSE, I would go for unit 3

    Thanks Pete - and for previous advice on AQA. Yes, looking at it keeping to the ethical side of things would make it easier for students - religious teachings they have learned can still be applied etc.. Will have a think...

    I too do Unit 3 and finds it does link well with Unit 2. I have found that since the issues covered are very current, students are more engaged in the subject which does make it easier in the final year.
