    I didn't revise re or even listen in class, in the exam I just said my opinion or an opinion which was easy to argue for and against sides and then had a rant about people who use religion as an excuse to be homophobic and I got an A* so I don't think you need to worry so much

    I did pretty much the same thing only I didn't even revise at all, never even bought a revision guide. I think re is just common sense.

    What do you mean by counter your opinion?
    Like say u say:

    Many Christians accept both scientific evidence and the bible... (After point made) however, some Christians only believe what the bible says

    Could u write something like that in the exam for c style question?

    Hi,

    Anyone on here doing the Edexcel R.S exam tomorrow?
    If so, can you please explain how you structure the 8 marker and 6 marker?

    Thanks
    HI! I'm doing edexcel tomorrow, eekkk. 8 markers are usually four slightly explained reasons (that's the easy way anyway), you can also do two well explained reasons or one fully developed comprehensive reason (which is almost impossible to gain full marks on)
    As for the six marks, it's a simple three arguments for and three arguments against for the statement (I also add in some explanation just to be on the safe side!)
    Just out of interest, which topics are you doing?
    Also, good luck!

    I haven't done a timed past paper. How have you found the timing, would you see it's an issue and would you say it's better to dive in or plan the responses?


    15 mins a-d and 15 minutes on e question.

    Make sure you relax but keep an eye on your timings because R.E has tight timings. You should go over how to structure your answers such as the 8 markers and remember to add examples and quotes as well.
    i'm sure you'll be fine, i'm also doing the R.E exam tomorrow
    Good luck!!! x

    Is this AQA? I got an A in this last year but should have had an A*. It was my fault for not focusing on Mark's gospel enough, believing I knew the stories well because I am a Christian. Learning from my mistakes from last year, make sure you know the biblical scriptures in the terms of having an idea of the main points as I remember them asking us to recall the stories. An example is the calming of the storm, make mind maps and summaries of the stories to have the key areas as these key areas are where they will tick off to show you have marks. I can't remember if it was 6 marks or 8 marks but those comparing essay at the end, plan. I didn't plan ever but used to always get full marks which is what made me feel confident entering the exams but went blank due to nerves. Planning helps getting your mind straight, it also helps with calming down as you're linking. Spend at least 5 minutes doing so and time yourself.
    My friends all had digital watches in these exams and didn't struggle like I did trying to see the time at the clock in the front while I was at the middle. I eventually got a digital watch and apparently in the ethics exam got full marks lol. But that area is easy, good luck!

    I don't see why not. You are just stating what different Christians believe... as long as your answer has a logical reason and explanation and maybe an example or quote... you're good to go.
    To be on the safe side, check out the mark scheme for an 8 marker and see what it says.
    I'm sure you can present both sides of the argument. It's better to stay neutral and say something like "some people believe......................whe reas other people think............" unless the question asks for your opinion. Then you would say "In my opinion.................Some people may disagree with me because............"
    Hope this helps!
    Good luck
