Does anyone know how the religious studies exams work. I know you do two papers on each date (ethics 1& ethics 2 then philosophy 1 & philosophy 2) but do you like get a break between the papers or does it just depend on your school?
Thanks in advance

The first exam is Ethics on the 12th May, this consists of two 1 hour papers sat at the same time, you need to learn two units from 7-9 and 2 from 10-12 for that exam, the philosophy paper is the same but at a later date

This is what my schools doing, you sit one exam and then once the hours up they'll collect your paper and bring round the second one once the short course students have gone. Depending on your school depends on whether they give you a 10 minute break, but more than likely not. 😄

Do your school give you a choice of which religion to do? I know everyone at my school had to do Christianity regardless of their religion as they said they didn't have time to teach the syllabus from multiple perspectives. It's a shame cause I thought it would be interesting to do other religions as well.

Yeah same for our school too, although most do Christianity so the teaching mostly caters for those doing that, like me.. although I'm personally an Atheist

We have a whole range of beliefs in my class (Buddhist, catholic, other Christian denominations, atheist, agnostic) so it is kind of frustrating to only learn about Christianity.

Everyone at our school had to do Christianity as we only have 1 single lesson a week so we don't have enough time to do the 8 units let alone learn it from a different religion. Everyone has an idea of Christian teachings so I guess it's easier. What units do you do?

Yeah we are similar, there just isn't time to do all the units multiple times.
For the units we do
Ethics 1: human relationships & medical ethics
Ethics 2: equality & peace and justice
Philosophy 1: beliefs about deity & life after death
Philosophy 2: science and religion & good and evil

they are all quite good units but I sort of wanted to do the media unit and the poverty & wealth unit cause they sounded really interesting. What do you do?

We do the same ethics units as you, but I'm struggling with the religion and equality unit as we haven't had time to learn it! We do the same for philosophy 2 but for philosophy 1 we do beliefs about deity and nature of belief. I really wanted to do life after death because it seems so much more interesting than nature of belief.


Which one are you the most confident about/what grade do you want? I'm definitely most confident on the ethics paper. 😊😊😊😊
