    So anyone doing the RS exam on the 17th May 2013, Any advice on how to structure answers, for each type of 2,3,4 and 6 mark questions. How much are you planning to write and how many quotes are you planning to remember.

    Yep, I'm doing this exam, shouldn't be too bad. Just memorising about 5 or 6 religious teachings from each topic and that's about it, the rest is common sense...

    We did a mock, and I only dropped one mark! I got 99% Idk why I just find it really easy. In terms of structure for the six markers I usually go one point, counter point, 2 religious teaching and conclusion.

    Islam and Christianity. Trying to find some that can apply to more than one so I have less to remember.

    How many religions should you do? And once you've got some, would you mind posting them? That way you can help some others that have this exam...

    Buddhism is the easiest to remember, because its teachings applies to almost all topics.

    I missed the three mark ones (case studies for prejudice, war etc.) because I had revised them and no-one else seemed to. I found the environment 6 mark one quite hard, but the war and peace topic was good. The 5 markers were pretty annoying though :/ Do you think the other units (I'm doing Unit 3 on Tuesday) will have the same format? (2 x 2 marks, 3 marks, 5 marks and 6 marks)?
