    I am doing Unit 1 tomorrow. What I have done is just learn everything, and do past paper questions.

    Before the exam make sure you know how to structure your answers and how much time to spend on each question. Also read the examiner reports after you have done a past paper. My RE teacher said that past paper questions will likely come up but will just be differently worded.

    Good luck

    Yeah my teacher has given us past papers with mark schemes and one of them with an examiner report. She also said to learn all the key words because the rest of the question usually relates to it.
    Thanks and Good Luck

    For the 8 marker... My teacher said to give 4 points and explain them which will give 8 marks. Include your opinion briefly and also give relevant quotes and examples. She said to do 5 just incase one is wrong
    I havent seen 6 mark questions on the re paper... its 2, 3, 4, or 8 marks
    Unless youre referring to the two 3 mark questions as 6 markers??

    This is really helpful ... but i thought that you had to include a different religion and an atheist view

    Yeah, how would you structure the two 3 mark questions? Also how many sentences should each paragraph for the 8 marker be provided that you're doing 4 reasons. And finally do you lose marks if you don't use any quotes and for the 8 marker do you have to refer to the religion?

    Thanks!

    Make sure to elaborate your points. Give different points of views and make sure to write something down for every question, even if you dont know the answer!

    when you see a question and you're like wtf, calm down, plan your points first and remember all your points don't have to link to Christianity. also sometimes the points can be sooo simple, it doesn't have to be sophisticated at all. e.g when its like how might a Christian prepare for a wedding, it could be simple as get a wedding dress (for two marks ect). and remember the whole country is doing it so different levels of points will be made. just go and do your best

    For the 3 markers, you get 3 marks for either giving a fully developed reason with quotes or 2 reasons with explanations or 3 brief reasons. I think the best way is to give 2 reasons with explanations for the 3 markers.
    For the 8 marker... you will need about 4 paragraphs if you give 4 reasons.. 1 paragraph for each reason. Its not necessary to give a quote for every reason but it might be good just to even paraphrase and say "in the Bible God says......" just for the extra credits. Referring to the religion... depending on the question... you have to decide but it makes more sense referring to a religion since it is an re exam.

    Thanks!! I will do that! Are the examinera generous or are they very strict like will they award marks if the answer makes sense or is it all strictly from the mark scheme?
