    Right, so I just did the b603 Ethics 1 exam and I got my results which came at 39/50 b (1 off a). I understood all the content and learnt so many quotes to back up my arguments and I know R.S isnt difficult at all because even D grade students in terms of science and maths were getting As and A*s, which really annoys me and is sort of like an insult.
    I would appreciate it if someone (preferably an a* student) could give me a breakdown of exam technique, particularly the 6 and 12 mark questions

    Thanks.

    Hi sneakbo 'Dagger that' anyway I think it would be best if you bought one of them Hodder Education revision guide. I got 49/50 for b603 and have 3 more R.s exams forthcoming. The way I ensure I get full marks for the 6 markers, I just fully explain one side then towards the end slightly touch on the other side. I tend to include at least 1 quote from the bible and I make sure that I clearly show that the different denominations have different views and why.
    As for the 12 mark question I tend to structure it by Agree with the statement then Disagree with the Statement then Agree once more and then a disagree by explain why it is a weak argument and then the conclusion.
    I don't know if I can do so well again because we did b603 in year 10 in which we spent the whole year learning about so I knew it inside out but for the remaining exams, we haven't really done much in class so I think going over practice papers is the best thing to do
