    Are you completely ignoring Donovon? I'm really considering it...
    I have 4 days to do it all and it feels like I'm basically teaching myself it rather than revising because my teacher was awful (he ended up getting sacked half way through, so we've had a supply teacher try her hardest to teach it!) It's been a bit of a nightmare I'm hoping Ayer comes up since it's the shortest so easier to go through!
    Do you already have a good understanding of the texts in general, or are you teaching yourself from scratch?

    I have a general (quite basic though) understanding of all 3; but Ayer is the only one that made sense to me without having to ask for help - although like I said, my teacher was so bad haha so any 'help' he did give on Donovon/Westphal meant nothing! :/

    What did you guys write for religious experience A01?
    can't remember what I wrote exclusively for the A01 bit but I know for the whole essay I talked about Swinburne's principle of credulity, Scheliermacher and the idea of the religious believers having an unobscured conscience, Wittgenstein's 'seeing-as'/experiencing-as, RM Hare and bliks and I think I mentioned Otto's definition of a numinous experience.

    Just had a look at your website and it's SO helpful, literally so good!! Thank you so much for linking it! I've had a really crap philosophy teacher this year, so was so scared for implications as I did not understand it - but after looking on your website I finally get it! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
    haha, you're welcome :'), I'm still cramming, turns out I made a mistake, I could only start revision on the 17th due to having three exams in a row last week!

    I hope all is well then and good luck for tomorrow x

    Verification, atheism and falsification for AO1 - maybe I went for a bit more depth

    AO2- I mentioned Swinburne's principle of testimony in passing, looked at language games. For implications I did one for religious belief (looking at Donovan's 'psychological certainty' and Hare's Bliks. Then for human experience, I looked at a point made by Stewart Sutherland

    I got an A at AS, (176 UMS) so I need on average, a lowish B in each A2 exam to get an A overall. You should probably be about to get that, although the boundaries are very tight at A2, what did you get at AS?

    Yeah, I've got a conditional from Exeter asking for AAB to do psychology. I think I'll need one of those As to be in philosophy…

    pretty good, I actually did an essay on the extract they gave us in the exam on Sunday, so it was a pleasant surprise. I'm worried I didn't make enough links, but it's done, and I'm just hoping I did well enough, the part B, was a piece of cake though . Just one more exam left haha x
