Right, so would it be stupid to know revise all the topics for the Foundations exam?
So like we've covered both the cosmological and design argument, the problem of evil and suffering, situation ethics and utilitarianism.
The only one we HAVE to answer is the problem of evil.

My strongest topics are design and situation, would it be stupid to just forget about the other two topics and not revise them at all?

Choose about 3 (maybe 4 if you are cautious)- I am doing design, evil and suffering, util and situation ethics (in case they mix it)

Do they like to mix the ethics question? Would it be like the significant features of each? Or like which is better?

Well, they usually mix situation ethics with religious morality but if they were to do util and situation ethics, it would probably be like to outline the key features for both for A01 and for A02 it would be like "to what extent is util a more convincing theory than situation ethics" etc.

BTW- do you do abortion for unit 2? If you do, do you have any notes or anything?

Hope they don't do that this year, I don't understand util at all, situation is far more straightforward

And no sorry, I do religious experience

For Investigations, I'm doing 'The Study of World Religions' paper, considering Buddhist attitudes towards Euthanasia. What about you? How are you revising for Investigations?

You?

Posted from TSR Mobile
Grade boundaries are usually about 72/90 for an A. Have a look on tthe Edexcel website.

I think that for design argument, strengths and weaknesses will come up.

Maybe for Utilitariansim too,


Its quite unpredictable but just make sure you know key features, strengths, and weaknesses for everything

There is a pattern of the likely questions that could come up as the previous person stated e.g. of key features/ strengths and weaknesses.

For instance for key features they have said in the past 'prominent/key ideas/concepts' so just adapt what you know
