    Hi guys!

    I have 2 R.S. exams coming up, Christianity Unit 1 on 17th May and Christianity: Ethics Unit 2 on 21st May.

    I'm slightly concerned about this, as my class is very mixed abilities and we never do any work. I've got the student books, but those Nelson Thornes books aren't really helpful, they talk a load of rabble sometimes.

    What can I do? I'm worried because I know that usually on each paper, out of a total of 72 raw marks each, the A* boundary is usually around 66 and in class I have been getting As consistently without revision. I feel that in the exam however, I'll panic and then not write to my best ability. I just need some revision tips and any help that anyone can provide. How hard are these papers for someone that is an A* student in most other subjects?

    Thanks for your help guys, I really appreciate it.

    yeah, i am but i'm with Edexcel.
    what to do is revise the main facts for each topic and then find mock/past papers online and practice them, thats what i'm going to do to after i've got the main facts in.
    Good luck!
