Hello, I am sitting the OCR Philosophy and Ethics Paper on May the 11th. I just wanted to know how you can get an A* on both Ethics 1/2 and Philosophy 1/2. I know how to crack the A B and C questions (1 mark, 2 mark and 3 mark respectively) but I just wanted to know how to get the top grades on both D and E (6 and 12 marks). I normally get 10 ish on E and 5 ish on D but want to improve. I know Bible quotes but the structure is what I need help with!

For the 12 marker use 3 arguments in support and against the statement and also in our personal viewpoint link back to the points you have made. And also link each point back to the statement. I mean I would be happy to get 10 out 12 , but as you want to aim high I would say try looking at pervious exam model answers for extra help.

one thing how are you revising for R.S, how do you memorise the main ideas and bible quotes cos there are so many !!!!

good luck !!!!!

Hi, thanks for the reply. For some reason I find Bible quotes amusing. God knows why? (See that pun!). I make R.S fun for myself. For my mocks I have massive mindmaps around my room. Are u also doing OCR? For animal testing etc. I also use the viewpoints of scientists btw. Good point on linking back btw.

To get 6 marks on the D question you must have 3 separate PEEL paragraphs fr different viewpoints . Normally works for me point, evidence,explanation, link

Remember to have a brief introduction then stating your different arguments. There must be for and against views presented in your twelve mark question. Back up these points with scriptures, personal opinion and quotes from Philosophers or scientists.

The general rule that we follow is on part D: 3 x PEE chain (Point, Evidence, Explanation) OR 2 x PEE chain but developed to a greater extent: either way it should be between 1/2 and 3/4 of a page. For part E: 2x PEEE chain (Point, Evidence, Explanation, Evaluation) + a personal viewpoint which must be explained and justified (give some decent reasoning or use a relevant quote and say you agree with it), which should be between 1 page and 1 1/2 pages. I'm sitting the exam as well though so this isn't a guaranteed A* plan, but it's simple and effective
