Are you talking about OCR RE? If so, I found it to be not too bad as well. In my mock I got a C but I left quite a few questions out, whereas today I answered everything, so I'm hoping for at least a B. My teacher has been awful, so I've had to practically teach myself.

What questions did you choose? I chose sport, human rights, relationships and identity.

Wasn't a fan of the using symbols to describe question, or the human bodies one, but was fine with the rest I think. Loved the one about the nature of God:-)

2010 grade boundaries can be found here: http://www.wjec.co.uk/uploads/publications/9212.pdf
2011 here: http://www.wjec.co.uk/uploads/publications/14884.pdf

Dunno about 2012, would be interested to see if anyone has them. Those ones are out of 96, but ours will be out of 101 as there were an additional 5 marks for spelling, punctuation and grammar and stuff.

70% is a B if I remember from my mocks. But they mark quite leniently.

Hey!

What did everyone say for the last question? (Humans are more than just bodies)

Also, what did you all say about how we should use natural resources / about religious creation stories still have meaning / religious people should not be wealthy / everyone should use symbols to describe God?

Thanks!!

i cannot remember what i wrote lol, all i know is i was rushing so probably waffling :/ and i said about using resources responsibly, khalifahs etc, i put about 'easier for camel to go through eye of needle than rich person to get to heaven', literal/non-literal believes of creation story, and how it helps for temptation to remember jesus died for their sins wbu?
