I'm doing this paper too, along with RSS02. Been taught all 4 topics, but going to focus on Utilitarianism and Situation Ethics for the exam, as well as making sure I know abortion & euthanasia in case either of the other 2 questions are dodgy.

For the 2014 paper, do you remember what the question for Abortion and Euthanasia was A01 & A02? As I've done every past paper but the 2014 for that topic

I was given the paper the other day to look through, they were:

AO1) Examine the following definitons for the start of human life and explain their relevance to the abortion debate: conception, primitive streak, viability. (30 marks)

AO2) 'Abortion should be illegal.' How far can religion support this view?
(15 marks)

Think that paper is on the AQA website now, they've published last year's papers.

I'm resitting this paper too, focusing on SE and Utilitarianism but I might revise Value of Human Life. How are you guys revising? I've made notes from the textbook (which isn't great imo) which I'm going to review over the next week and do a couple of past papers. I got a B last year and really want to bump the grade up but I'm not too fond of this exam.

Hi, I'm doing Situation Ethics and Abortion & Euthanasia, do you have any tips on how to get really high marks. I know the content and the information required but its just about how I'm applying it in my essay :/

Thanks in advance.
My teacher has suggested to me that there may be a question on both Abortion and Euthanasia. He said that this has happened very few times before, which is why he thinks it might be the case this year, and if not, it will likely be on Euthanasia, due to the fact that Abortion has appeared more frequently in past exam papers.

Hi, I have been doing a lot of essays in preparation for this exam and getting them marked by my teacher, and I'll tell you what I understand about accessing the higher marks.

First of all, always make sure you can include some form of detail in your paragraphs, by which I mean examples of quotes, teachings or applying a statement to a hypothetical situation to illustrate your point. It's very useful to include these sorts of things as it shows the depth of your understanding.

Furthermore, try and maintain focus on the question, consistent reference to the question to show that you're answering it and remaining on task is key, in order to show the examiner that you are addressing and answering the question.

I have been given 30/30 marks on several of my essays for Abortion and Euthanasia, if you would like me to share some with you I'd be happy to do that! As for SE, I'm afraid I'm not studying that.

Thank you for the help. I think it will be beneficial for me if I saw examples of essays from you if you're getting really high marks on Abortion and Euthanasia, so can you share them with me please?

I do the ethics paper too and plan ondoimg utilitarianism and abortion and euthanasia.

For utilitarianism, it's likely that there will be a question on the general principles.

For euthanasia and aboration, my teacher also predicts that it will be tested on both or just euthanasia.

If it will be tested on both for euthanasia and abortion, would they possible ask for religious arguments against the ending of life, similar to the 2011 June paper?
