CCEA Religious Studies. GCSE and A-Level thread

Hi everyone :smile:,

Since there doesn't seem to be many members who do CCEA exams or many threads made about them (ones that are are rarely answered). I thought I'd make a thread specifically for CCEA RE GCSE and A-Level.
Since there aren't many who do CCEA RE at any level on this forum it makes sense to group everyone together in one thread where everyone can help eachother out.

I've also done both, and am now in Teacher Training preparing to teach both levels. So Im also more than willing to help out :smile:

What exactly are you struggling with?


Mainly the Bible course, which is to do with Paul and his letters, just not to sure how exactly to structure essays and do them within the time
I did Acts and 1 Corinthians / Early Church

With regards to Paul learn missionary journeys and use commentaries to understand it better.

Hi, I'm currently studying the A2 CCEA religious studies course - Luke's gospel and Celtic church and I'm also repeating my AS exams as well. I was wondering what would possible be the best way to revise for these exams as I really struggle with memorising essays ? Also when answering the actual essay questions I really struggle with applying the right knowledge to the questions as I seem to include information that isn't really relevant, how do I figure out what needs to be put in the essay and what doesn't ??
For me, I use mind maps. I would get a general question like what's the theological significance of salvation history and then make a mind map of each paragraph. To try and make my essays relevant I try to link back to the question in each paragraph. Hope this helps and good luck in your exams

Hey, I do GCSE RE with CCEA. I'm studying Christian Ethics and Matthew's Gospel. For Matthew's Gospel, does anyone know if you need o know about John the Baptist's death (when Herodia got her daughter to ask for his head?). It's not in my notes but I think it's kind of important:curious:

There are no a2 January papers, just as papers.

Hi, I'm currently studying A2 Luke's Gospel and Ethics and repeating Luke's Gospel. Just wondering if anyone can help me with the Luke repeat, particularly the religious and political background and the narratives. I think my main problem is how to answer the questions (my question b's are terrible) as I don't know what's relevant and what's not, so I either go off on a tangent trying to write too much and then get no where near finished, or I just give up and write very little. Any help would be great, thanks.


What are your predictions for the Ethics module?

I don't really go by predictions but if I was to have a guess I would go with virtue ethics, nature of human rights, poverty, and either the ethics of contemporary warfare or the purpose of punishment, but my predictions are the worst :s-smilie: so I wouldn't use them. How about you, do you have any predictions?
