    Hey guys!
    So I haven't seen many GCSEs forums on TSR that are specific to certain exams/exam boards so I decided to make a bunch so we can discuss revision techniques, exam dates/times and just generally about the exam content and stuff bc I find it really helpful when other people are having the same problems as me.

    I'm studying:
    - Unit 1 [Christianity and one other religion, which for me is Islam]
    - Unit 12 [Judaism]
    Feel free to ask me for help with any of them^

    This is part of a few forums I'll be making so look out for more 'To those studying...'s.

    I'm doing Unit 1 (Religion and Life) and Unit 8 (Religion and Society) on Christianity and Islam.

    The thing I don't like is the lack of time. In the mock exam, I went through three pens.

    Not really. It's different for everyone. Content wise, i think it's simple to understand. But there is just so much content that it is hard to remember it all in the time given ..

    I made notes for Unit 1 in year 10 so I'm using those to make mindmaps. Bc I'm a visual learner I'm doing one colour for each mindmap (one module per mindmap) and sticking them round my room. Then I'm covering up the information with post it notes and trying to memorise each section of a module if that makes sense. Also doing the practice essays in the text book (if you have one) or from past papers on the edexcel website help consolidate your knowledge after you've learnt a small section of a module

    Since there's a LOT to learn, I am. The best thing is to memorise quotes as examples for the part Bs, Cs and Ds because you can just manipulate them to use in a question.

    For example
    D) Should men and women have equal roles in religion?
    QUOTE - "Wives must submit to their husbands" ~ St. Paul
    And you can use it both for and against the argument

    I do recommend starting to memorise some stuff if you can because there is SO MUCH to cover
    This is how I revise:

    Hey guys! If you're struggling to summarise or learn information from the textbook alone I recommend watching the videos on this guy's channel:

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtO...AcxFa37iQOUtOA

    He's really good
    He covers - Unit 3 -Unit 10 and I think Unit 5?
    Either way if you're doing Unit 1 there's a lot of content overlap and I'm sure there are with other units too
    Check him out :3
