I got an A* at GCSE (only short course though) I think its total luck. I knew nothing, didn't have one single exercise book for R.E. Try to show you're thinking about the questions.
On my paper it said something along the lines of (can't remember exactly was nearly 2 years back now!' "Why are humans superior to animals". I didn't know what the correct answer was, - it's something to do with humans having a concience and other animals not i think - as we hadn't learnt it. So instead I argued that humans are only a superior form of animals....it must have worked....or I just got lucky.

Quite stupid really, I overheard one of my Jewish friend's tatic for RS, they basically make up quotes from Rabbi xzy to support their arguments. And the examiner doesn't have a clue, but to give them the mark.

I don't know if this is true of GCSE, but my A-Level Psychology teacher said if you quote something that is not a mainstream study/piece of text then the marker is supposed to check that it is genuine. Whether they all bother or not is a different story.

They are, whether it is science facts/ so examiner have to check it out.

But realistically for gcses, I mean they have over 100 scripts to mark, do you think they can be assed to mark it properly?

But in A levels they do check all quotes etc. as they mark the exam from beginning to end or per question.

I did no work for 2 years, just did 2 hours reading the night before, memorized some decent quotes, and got a high A*.

Although the exams were very easy though.

Very true.

They aren't going to search for hours to check your quote.

They'll give you the mark, or give you credit for it when marking that particular question in some form at least.

I am non-religious and didn't care whatsoever about R.E, did very little work for 2 years and only 2 hours reading/revision, yet i got A*.

It isn't hard to achieve, obviously.

You would be a millionaire Phil if you got a pound for each time you had to say that to a random person who posts an academic question on the main page with not enough information for people to then help them.

Yeah, I wrote out a few quotations from Mark's gospel, learnt them on the bus the morning of the exam and got an A. My friend, on the other hand, wrote 'because Jesus loves me' and about tuna sandwiches, and got a D. She wasn't really bothered (evidently).
