    I've just been memorising stuff now.

    I think I may be memorising some unnecessary things, but I can't memorise any of this stuff! It's just so long winded. I'm really starting to panic now, I feel like I wasted my time making all these flashcards.

    With only 40 days until the exam I feel like I'm not gonna fit everything in
    You'll be okay! Don't panic
    Just relax. Lean things that apply to loads of different units
    For example:
    Talking about 'thou shalt not kill' in the Decalogue applies to loadssss of different things... Abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, war etc
    Same with Sanctity of Life principle ^^

    Just go through topics and see what you can remember

    Have you made any notes/flashcards? You'll be fine, a lot of RE is writing technique and giving your opinion

    Hi guys.
    A question:
    For the 2 markers,can you give your own definition(as long as it's right) or does it have to be edexcel's word for word definition
    For E.g If i gave a reply of "A numinous experience is a feeling that wows an individual and makes them think that God is behind that" ,will that gain 2 marks or do i have to write "A numinous experience is an experience which overwhelms someone"(i think that's the edexcel meaning)

    Hey
    No, it doesn't have to be the word for word definition but it's got to be correct. Even if you look at the mark schemes it's very rare that the "correct" answer is the definition given in the specification. And personally I think that that answer is perfectly OK

    For part b ,can you give two reasons of sides?
    For e.g
    "Has attitudes to homosexuality changed in the UK?Give your opinion"
    My answer would be :Yes i think attitudes to homosexuality has changed because it is now illegal to be homophobic and people can potentially be fired from their jobs(for e.g) if they are caught being homophobic
    HOWEVER many terminology that is derogatory to homosexuals,and is used to insult them(for e.g "Gayboy,battyman,lesbo" etc) are still rife in society.Furthermore,some religions do not accept homosexuals marrying and some homosexual people are still afraid of revealing their sexual orientation to society due to the backlash "

    My RE teacher has told us NOT to do this as you may lose marks. Do not sit on the fence, choose one side or the other and make 2 points to support it.

    Could anyone help me with why justice is important to Muslims? Thanks
    The Muslim teachings on Justice.
    On the last day God will will reward those who have been just and fair towards other people.
    The Quran teaches that God wants everyone to be fair.
    Everyone is equal in Gods eyes.
    The prophet Muhammed p.b.u.h always acted in a just way, which shows that we should also do the same.
    Shariah law requires justice for all people.

    Here you go, hope it helps.

    Two questions:

    For part B,do you get marks for saying "Yes i agree with this because as a Muslim/Christian i believe this because in the Quran(i'm Muslim) it says God designed the world"

    For part A,do the answers have to be exact to Edexcel's definition.For E.g ,Edexcel definition of Abortion is "abortion the removal of a foetus from the womb before it can survive" but would i get a mark for saying "Abortion is the termination of a foetus before it has the will to survive".Anyways,the mark scheme says "award marks if reworded" but what constitutes those mark?

    Hey guys i have a question,
    on the B question when you state your opinion are you allowed to give an opinion as to why you would agree as well as an opinion as to why you would disagree?
    My old teacher said you are allowed to say:
    I agree because ....
    I also disagree because ....
    But I want to be sure this is allowed as I do not want to lose 2 marks for this!

    Yes as long as it's relevant to the question and you back it up with an explanation
    As long as your definition is vaguely similar to the official one, you'll get the marks (apart from on ones like Decalogue where it's simply the Ten Commandments, or prejudice 'pre-judging someone' )

    You can but it's better to stick to one side; if your reasons contradict each other you'll only get two marks so it isn't worth the risk (unless you have absolutely no idea)

    Good luck for Monday guys! Gonna attempt a Unit 2 paper sometime today

    No you would still get the mark
    The definition doesnt have to be exact but similar
    Ps. It says in the mark scheme

    I don't know. :bawling: It is my first ever proper exam as I'm in year 10 doing it early along side Psychology. :eek3:

    I remember being so frustrated in my mocks because I couldn't even find the courage to look away from my paper and the desk because I was so frightened of the invigilators... Sounds silly I know. I messed up as well and missed out on six marks because I did the d-style question from the wrong question and only realised a minute before the exam was due to end! Got an A* in my mock and I'll be so disheartened if I don't get that in the actual thing.

    I've been so restless and to think that it's so close pains me. :bricks:

    Aw, try not to worry about it - it's only RE so I doubt it'll have much of an effect on your life if you don't do well, but considering you got an A* in your mock I wouldn't be worried at all!
    In year 10 I got a B and then in year 11 I got an A, and I'm aiming for an A* in these proper exams.
    Good luck for tomorrow and Wednesday, and for your psychology too!

    Hi,

    I haven't even revised yet and I'm just stuck...

    How do you answer the C-style questions (8 marks)?

    Can someone write me a model answer to this question please?

    Explain how the followers of one religion respond to the scientific explanations ofthe origins of the world.
