    Heey...
    I was wondering if anyone else is sitting this paper this year or has done in previous years? I'm really hoping to get an A, an A* would be incredible!? so if anyone has any advice or tips for succeeding in this exam I would be extremely grateful of the help. Also, if you're looking at medical research andmedical developments as opposed to business practice and economics, what area/s are you focusing on and how are you tying those into your essay questions?
    Thankyou, any help would be really really appreciated

    Same as me, I got an A and A* which equaled to an A grade, my tactic for the exam was to learn a few teachings that could be applied to lots of different things e.g. agape love and when writing about your own oppinion for 8 mark questions I would write things such as the law on that particular issue or moral dillemas rather that my true opinion. Hope this helps and good luck

    I'm doing this exam too! Pretty sure there aren't any 8 mark questions? Just 45 and 30

    Which other A2 exam are you doing alongside 4C?

    Or two purely religious questions.

    How can the other question be religious? Natural law based?

    How would that work? I thought only the first questions were about religion and the second questions were about ethics/ethical systems

    I was under the same impression, I prefer the ethical theories question so was depending on just learning that..

    As someone else said, deontological is possible

    Also a question that just asks about ethics is likely

    'Examine the major ethical issues which arise from either medical research/developments or business practices/economics.' came up in 2011 and I wouldnt be surprised if something similar came up this year

    I'm hoping they've just got confused, I was depending on just doing the ethical questions too.

    I looked at the specification and it looks like religious ideas and the ethical theories are two separate things

    You can be asked about religious ethical systems.

    Examine how __________________ theories can help make moral decisions (in medical research and development)
    options to fill in the gap can be:
    religious ethical
    deontological
    teleological
    hybrid

    For deontological, what else would you use apart from Kant and DCT?

    So by religious ethical systems you mean Christian ethics/ natural law?
    You woudnt include conscience would you? I don't see that as a system

    Not conscience for that, but they could ask about religious conscience eg. Butler and Newman. This being its role in decision making.

    Has anyone got any revision notes on religion in terms of moral decision making? Would be highly appreciated.
