I am currently studying OCR AS Level Philosophy of Religion and Religious Ethics. I was just wondering if anyone has any successful revision tips for philosophy and ethics because I am unsure how I should try and revise for this kind of subject. Any revision tips would be most appreciated.

considering on doing this for AS, same board and everything, is the course enjoyable and is it hard to achieve a the elusive grade 'A'. What are your predicted for this subject?

The subject is not very difficult unless you really do want to get a B or an A and then it just becomes a nightmare! I am targeted a C but am looking to get a B. I am consistently getting low Cs / high Ds and so this is why I am trying to look for useful revision tips!!!

Just perfect your essay writing skills by doing past Qs and handing them to your teacher to mark. Take the comments on board and improve. You'll boost marks just for having a coherent and well thought out argument for part Bs, make sure to learn all the terminology as well such as 'predicate', 'a posteriori', etc , examiners love that and always comment on it in examiner reports. Last year I found the best way to ensure 10/10 on part Bs was to have a clear opinion throughout, countering/arguing against every single piece of evidence that contradicts your view. Make sure to always put the opposite opinion, but make sure you afterwards say why this opinion is not as good as yours! Also, your conclusion needs to be good, so leave your best point/argument until last. You can ensure you do this by doing a little plan that takes 5 minutes of the things you will cover before you begin to write.

Thank you very much, I think it is my part Bs that are letting me down.
