    Hey guys,
    Just starting a thread so we can all discuss on what might come up in the RMPS exam on the 26th.

    My strongest area is definitely Crime and Punishment (Kantian Ethics, Utilitarianism etc.) Hoping some well rounded questions come up and I'm praying that it doesn't mention the Cosmological Argument (I know nothing lol:rolleyes:)

    I am exactly the same! i just dont understand the cosmological argument haha, I love Utilitarianism! Our teachers said that there might be a question on kant/utlitarianism and their vievs on punishment and that there will definitely be a question on evolution.. and that a 10 marker might come up again..

    Correct me if I'm wrong, I couldn't find a thread on RMPS so decided to create one just before the exam on Monday 26th May. How is everyone feeling about it?

    I'm doing Christianity, crime and punishment and science & belief. I say higher last year and got a B, but I really enjoyed the subject so took it again as a 5th higher rather than taking free periods. As I already have a B, it hasn't been a top priority subject for me this year so I haven't focused on it as much. However, now that the exams coming up I realise just how much I've forgotten about the course and so I need to cram in major revision. The problem is, I'm really struggling with revising Christianity as I really don't know what to revise for it. Does any one have any websites that would help me, or can you name the topic in Christianity section that I should revise?

    Kants responses to war no clue
    just remember the 3 maxims!
    1. Must act as though you are the absolute authority
    2. You should be able to make it into a universal law
    3. Never treat people as a means to an end!

    war goes against all 3 of those! Think, what if everybody did this (universal law)? The world would be full of war and death! Also, war uses soilders in order to try and win the war and therefore it is using people (soilders) as a means to and end!

    HOWEVER, the categorical imperative says that you should base your actions on a sense of duty! It is your duty to fight for your country and try and protect your civilians and war may be necessary in order to do this!

    Therefore, according to Kant, although war is not completely morally right, it could be necessary

    I'm doing Buddhism, Belief and Science and Crime and Punishment.

    The Crime and Punishment stuff is okay and so is Belief and Science. Buddhism... Not so great
    I've been cramming in as much as I can. I really want/need an A.
    Good luck for Monday!

    I'm doing morality (utilitarianism, Kant, also Euthanasia etc...) , science & belief and Christianity. I love Utilitarianism and Kant so hopefully they will be there. Plus remember all the different views for different Religions. Anyone else doing the euthanasia topic? What do you reckon they will ask. Christianity is probably the topic I'm a bit iffy on so hopefully some nice questions for them will come up!

    Im doing Buddhism, gender and science and belief. We haven't been given any predictions but I really dont understand evoloution, is anybody able to explain it to me please? I also think human condition will come up for buddhism and maybe meditation but it's all just a guessing game. If revelation came up that would be fab.

    Revelation pros:
    Too many people have had religious experiances for them not to be true

    It gives meaning and purpose to life. It encourages and inspires and provides comfort during times of suffering.

    Revelation cons:
    Special revelation is only an individual who experiances it and therefore it is hard to believe when you have not experianced it yourself.

    Many people mistake revelation as dreams as they hope that it will take place and God will reveal himself but actually it is nothing more than a dream.

    Totally thread crashing here because I'm not sitting the exam this year. :P I was wondering how similar higher is to Int 2. From the sounds of the course outline it looks exactly the same but probably more in depth. Is this true or am I totally wrong? Good luck with the exam!

    Ive crashed it this year so I really don't know, the jump hasn't been bad and higher is a really great course that provides you with some amazing skills and it provides you with a sense of maturity so it's really worthwhile

    It definitely sounds awesome. I'm just worried that I'll get bored if it's exactly the same stuff all over again. But hey, I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun, the teacher will be a laugh, and I think there's about seven people in my class. I'm totally looking forwards to it.
