I'm feeling quite happy about the exam, but I prefer the investigations paper. I'll most likely answer Cosmological, Problem of Evil and Utilitarianism, but I would answer Design or Situation Ethics if I had to.

I hated it at first but then I basically learnt one essay off by heart and I've been adapting it for the different questions. We do medical ethics as well, which I love. What topic have you done for yours?

I think im on a different exam boards but my topics are cosmological argument, psychology of religion (Freud and Jung), Utilitarianism (Act and Rule) and Situation Ethics. I'm personally not looking forward to the philosophy I have hardly any quotes.

To those doing Problem of Evil and Suffering - how are you concluding and what have you written for part two?

I've focussed on Augustine and a little on Irenaeus and Hick but I am going over it now and I feel like I'm completely wrong and haven't written enough.

I think I've gone completely off topic and now I'm panicking so much! Haha.

Also I am re-sitting and did Miracles last year so I feel so unprepared. Any advise or tips for the 2nd part of the Problem of Evil would be amazing!!

In part A if they ask for 2 solutions to the POV then you talk about Irenaeus and Augustine and in part B you are most likely asked to compare the two. However, if they ask for 1, then in part B they will ask you to compare one against the other e.g. if Augustine was part A then in part B you would evaluate why Ireneaus is better.

if you are asked for strengths then you use this structure;
- strength
- weakness
- strength
for each paragraph
If weakness then you use this structure;
- weakness
- strength
- weakness
(you can evaluate more if you have enough time)
