I did the ocr re exam a few years bk...
I preferred ethics over philosophy, because I found it more interesting (and I remember always doing ethical debates in class)
I revised quite a bit (especially since I lost my re folder
which my re teacher went ballistic over lol, so I had to rely on someone else's notes..)
the topic i liked revising was about abortion and the different ethical views on it. 'for and against' etc.
I ended up getting B overall (which for me is quite good considering the fact, lol and gave my re teacher a shock)
Just like you I quite liked RE and decided to take it as one of my A-levels, I did quite well at it at first... but then after while I started to find it more and more difficult, which i then eventuallly dropped in the end.. but i think that is personally due to fact of me not preparing myself to the realisation of the massive contrast between GCSE and A-level, but being as you got 'A' im sure you may find it easier then i did, (so i hope i haven't put you off), and good luck if you choose to take it on at A-level
Oh, ok...a few years back. I'm not sure if the boundaries have changed in the past 2 or 3 years.
Yes, I prefer Ethics over Philosophy. One reason is because there's a lot of controversial topics and I love those. Another reason is because I got a very high grade for both Ethics exams. I don't intend to brag, but I got A* grades for the Ethics exams...and I have no idea how!
QUESTION: Could I ask OCR if I could see both of my Ethics papers?
I think that for RE revision, questions from past papers is key. My great RE teacher made us a booklet full of 3 mark, 6 mark and 12 mark questions that were from past papers. We also did For and Against arguments tables when we revised 12 mark questions in class.
Yes, I think abortion was interesting too. Like I said in my previous posts, I absolutely LOVED revising for both Ethics exams.
B grade overall is good, trust me. My weakness is time management, so I really was not expecting an A grade overall, never mind A* grades for both Ethics exams. I guess my 50% extra time really did help (my thought processing speed is quite slow), but my hands ACHED at the end!
I'm not sure how I'll find A-Level Religious Studies. I hope that the college I'm going to has OCR as its RS Exam Board. Nope, you haven't put me off. I loved RE at GCSE level and I'm sure I'll love it more at A-level. Thank you for the wishes.
I'm also taking A-Level English Literature, BTEC Certificate Law and A-Level Sociology.
