    I'm actually retaking this exam.
    What topic out of design and cosmological are you thinking of doing? Last year I did cosmological and I completely flopped it as there is too much content. This year I'm doing design and problem of evil which are proberly the best ones to do.
    For ethics- situation, utilitarianism and religion&morality. Loads of content but simple topics. Just war is like death.

    Asked my teacher about exam predictions and she flat out refused saying in previous years they've noticed a pattern but one year it didn't follow the pattern etc and I said I wouldn't hold it to her if they got it wrong but she did mention science and religion

    With Philosophy I've focused on Plato+Aristotle, the three arguments for the existence of God (Ontological, Cosmological, Teleological) and a bit on Problem of Evil and Religion & Science to try and cover all bases
    For Ethics I've covered Utilitarianism, Natural Law, Situation Ethics and Kantian Ethics with some detail and mainly Genetic Engineering, Abortion and Euthanasia for the moral issues.

    Does anyone have any predictions based on the previous papers what topics are likely to come up, and if I should try and cover more the topics to be safe? I've been getting As all year in essays but when it comes down to the timed conditions and not having any notes I'm worried I might flop hahaha

    Nope, I always end up doing very last minute revision, I'll go through it now and try and at least have enough knowledge to answer a question if I have to, is everyone else learning every topic?

    I think there is a good chance of Natural Law in ethics along with something about moral absolutism/relativism

    Philosophy I think possibly cosmo/teleological, goodness of god and aristotle

    I've done every topic apart from the science part. I find that difficult and not going to choose it if it comes up in the exam. Im just reviewing over my notes?
    Do you think its a good idea for me to learn science&religion? 2 days before exam...?
