Why choose this specification?
Our Edexcel A level General Studies specification encourages students to debate, to enquire and to test assumptions. It is based on an investigation into the three key areas of the contemporary world: culture, science and society.
You will encourage analytical skills to draw distinctions between knowledge, truth and belief, and help students to recognise common fallacies, deductive and inductive arguments and arguments drawn from analogy, cause and authority.
