Hey guys, I'm an A2 student that is also retaking ethics As and was wondering if anyone's teachers had tried to predict any of the As or A2 ethics papers questions?
My teacher thinks for philosophy that religious language, miracles, religious experience and life/death will come up but were not too sure on ethics.

Any help would be appreciated

I've also found the AS philosophy questions and I suspect that Aristotle is going to come up as well as the Cosmological argument and goodness of God, but theodicy(both Augustine and Irenaeus), irreducible complexity, and the Ontological argument probably aren't going to come up since they came up last year.

Also if you're doing A2 Philos/Ethics this website is really helpful- http://jakedoesrevision.blogspot.co....onscience.html

I used it last year and got an A in the Philosophy just using his notes!
