    Do you get a choice of 2 questions for each chapter? And is it true you can choose between the medical issues and science section? So you do one of the other?

    I'm doing AQA, and I also have an RS exam on Tuesday, but it is the second paper for a Full Course GCSE exam, so it may be slightly ifferent. I am slightly scared to tell you what I'm doing in case it is a different spec and you've been taught different material. The best thing to do is to either talk to your teacher or go to the AQA website and have a look for the specification. If, however, it is a specific topic you need help with then post back and I'll do my best to help you.

    Thanks for those Jamie and . One question, anybody doing the AQA Short Course...that past paper that Jamie has got a link to, is it just me or have your teachers not covered some of those topics with you? I mean, I understand that Buddism/Islam/Judaism doesn't apply to what we've been taught because we've only done Christianity...but we've never learnt about Agape and Philia love at our school, so they won't question us on that, will they? Assuming that the teachers at our school weren't being evil and stupid to make us fail on purpose...

    You haven't learnt about the different types of love? :eek:

    As far as revision goes, I suggest you just revise the main bible passages and learn the basic parables (parable of lost son, good samaritan etc.).

    Our school made us revision guides with the key quotes and ideas in, so I'll be looking through that and wondering how the hell I'm going to answer the obscure questions in section A of the paper. :confused:

    Yeah we get 5 topics on Edexcel [Unit H 5575]:
    1) Religion and Social Responsibility
    2) Religion and the Environment
    3) Religion and Peace and Conflict
    4) Religion and Crime and Punishment
    5) Religion and Medical Issues/Science

    If this is 100% terminal examination [Unit H - Christianity + one other religion]you're doing, you get 2 questions per topic listed above, of which you pick one to do. With topic 5, at school you either studied "Medical Issues", or "Science" [or both perhaps!]. You pick one of these to answer, and you are advised to spend 30 minutes doing it. You get 3 marks here for your QoWC.

    Hope this helped!

    Nope, we've never done the different types of love and now I'm thinking that's not such a good thing... Well, I have my loyal CGP guide which will surely have the different types.

    I know all the passages quite well so that'll be okay. As for Section A...what sort of questions does that include? Like those evaluating questions, right?
