I have a mock examination in GCSE Ethics and Mark's Gospel- i seem to have no problem with Ethics (already at an a*), but the highest ive gotten in Marks Gospel is an A grade, and i really want to secure an A*.

what are the best ways of going about Marks Gospel revision, and ethics revision for that matter?

any help is much appreciated.

What really important is your answering question technique. I did the same two exams marks in yr 9 and ethics in yr 10. I got a in marks and redid it in yr ten and still got an a but it was a higher mark, while getting an a* in ethics, making it a overall. You're probably wondering where I am going with this but basically the reason I got the higher mark the second time round even though I did practically no revision was because I did more practise questions while preparing for marks and ethics. In year 9 I spent so much time just learning all the knowledge stuff and when it came to answering the questions properly I couldn't do it. So basically what I am saying is make sure you've got a good question technique as well as SPAG as that is now a whopping 5% of it and you should be fine!

Good Luck

If they ask something like "can miracles happen?"
For yes say:
"because it says so in the Bible"

I got 99/100 in my Mark's Gospel. Learn the key texts word perfect and write the whole texts if they ask to give an account (even if it looks like they don't want the whole thing - better safe than sorry). For the Do You Agree questions I made at least six points on each side (more in section B). Don't reference anything outside Mark's Gospel and you'd be surprised what points you can make from the set texts. The first thing you should do when you go into the exam is have a look at section B and decide what one you want to do - that way you can think of your answer throughout the exam. Write really fast and you should have no/very little time at the end of the exam (I think I had like 2 or 3 mins left).

Pretty much all the stories in the yellow boxes in the text book. I learned the stories just by learning them over the year for class tests then the weekend before the exam I wrote them out and started reading them out aloud A LOT. Eventually they just click
