    Woah! Everyone's A*'s come mostly from RE...I think RE is just common sense really with a few keywords to remember!

    I genuinely don't remember probably in one of my early secondary school exams? At a guess, I'd say English Literature.

    Mine was RE at GCSE and that was my only A* at GCSE - I really didn't revise as much as I should but that A* in RE was easy - just pretend to be a catholic...

    I also got A* at A-level philosophy of religion and ethics which DID require a lot of revision however I read outside the curriculum in phil of religion anyway while I was at college so I didn't find it too bad.

    A biology paper was my first one and I think my first overall A* was History, not sure though.

    If we're also doing A Level I think my first A* was a History of Art mock, not entirely sure.
