I don't know properly, hah. But I if you have the grades at GCSE, you can take this instead of key skills so I jumped at the chance.

On the course information sheet for it, it says:
"The specification covers the following areas:
[*]Identifying the elements of reasoning[/*]
[*]Evaluating reasoning of different kinds[/*]
[*]Recognising and evaluatin assumptions[/*]
[*]Presenting arguments[/*]
[*]Assessing evidence and applying principles of evidence to real life situations[/*]"

So I'm assuming it means look at something, analyse it, form an opinion, argue about it.

A particularly horrible kebab.
Trekking off into Oxford's back streets in search of a comic shop, only to find it shut.
Also, knackered.
