About 50 or more of my year group has attained an A or A*. Including me, I got 95% of the exam correct. Especially if you're doing Edexcel Religion and Life course. I put no effort into the exam, I revised like 3 days before the exam. And all I did was watch videos.

Were mainly doing pastpapers which used to be real exams. If those were real exams and people are getting A's and A* then in the real exam we will get A's.

To be honest, the knowledge needed for RE is very limited. I'm doing AQA GCSE for it and it really seems like you need a fairly basic understanding of the topics and their keywords, religious beliefs on that topic, and pretty much knowing how to apply those teachings and constructing a balanced argument with different viewpoints.

R.S is a joke of a GCSE, did it one year early and got 98% - no revision needed. It's seriously just simple logical analysis and ethical reasoning, many in my class got the same - some even better (200/200). As long as you've read the book at least once or twice, it'll remain embedded in you and you won't need to even stress about it later.

Because there aren't any real answers, you just make them up.

Exactly, I started revising a week before the exams and still got an A* if I did that for Science i'll end up with a D+.

It's not easy, it's actually pretty difficult.... for me anyway. 😔

Well, to me it's difficulty depends on how well you remember things and how familiar you are with said religion. What's your religion and what religion are you studying?


P.S.

Sorry for the horrible grammar

Thats what I thought I got, but I got an A* instead and the other guy ended up with a C. I use rumors from my school and stuff to predict what I think I got.

That's why I'm worried about Christianity, I've always thought that all RCs are pretty liberal and then I found out that they weren't really liberal. It was quite shocking that I actually swore out loud during class.

just remember that RE and philosophy and ethics are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT in terms of difficulty

one is a piss about and a breeze

the other is a very hard and extremely well respected a level that i can't recommend enough

When you're doing Religion and life it does cross with Philosophy alot.
