We'll I only did shortcourse R.E but the exam was basically writing out quotes and your opinion on things
If you know the quotes and idea and things it's easy, but it's also easy to fail if you don't put the work in 'cause alot of straight A/A* people at my school ended up with B's and C's

That was what I thought anyways, might be different for you

I did RS GCSE and it was my easiest exam. I found it fairly straightforward- the exam was mostly memorising opinions and quotes for different religions.

In my year, most people who did it got it as their only A* - I didn't do it, although I could have done it and bossed an A*.

I took my first exam in RS in March and got a C in that. It is the lowest grade I have ever gained and I think it really depends on your writing style. I wish I took business studies instead.

I'm doing AQA RS and I find it quite easy, the Christianity is fairly straight forward - just learning about the different denominations and ceremonies and the Moral Issues module that I'm doing is basically what different denominations think and Bible references. And the lessons are fun

As long as you know the stuff it's pretty straight forward.

Wait until you get to A level :p:

I did GCSE Law in 2013 and found it very difficult. Some questions were very similar to questions on the AS Law papers. I would say you need to master the technique of stating what the law is, apply to the scenario and justify using statutes, cases or examples from civil cases. You also need to know what the law on, for example murder is, off by heart and find cases/examples for a range of crimes/civil wrongs. Always always give examples and APPLY the law. This is what solicitors/barristers and judges do everyday, but for students starting off in Law, it's not always obvious. I achieved a grade A. A* on paper 1 ( 84/90) and 64/90 on Unit 2. I ran out of time and this was a problem for lots of people who sat it at the college.

RE GCSE is easy if you want it to be. I'd suggest working on exam technique for a B c and d styles.
Firstly 2 points
Secondly 2 points
Thirdly 2 points
finally 2 points
This should give you the whole 8 marks.
Exam strat would do the Cs first then Ds, Bs then As last.
