    If anyone did young people:

    - did any of you give examples for the coming of age ceremony? I gave an example of bar/bat mitzvah, hopefully that's right..
    - for the question that said 'explain problems for young people who CHOOSE to follow a religion'

    I said that peer pressure may play a massive part eg a young Muslim man who wants to go out with his friend may be peer pressured to drink which is haram or a young Christian woman who goes out with her friends may be encouraged to do indecent things eg sex before marriage and then I spoke about its place in the bible, and then I went on to say how there shouldn't be any problems anyway because they CHOSE to follow the religion so they should know the consequences..

    Would that be right?

    I feel dead inside.
    I did prejudice- ''what do religious believers believe about/think about ageism?'- and drew a complete blank! What did everyone else do?
    I feel my A* has gone down the drain!

    Who else thought that the question on abortion choices was poorly worded?

    Omg that one killed me hahahahahaah I wrote that ageism isn't specifically young people targeting old people it could be either way so I gave some religious teachings about how children should be protected and then gave some old people teachings, eg honour your mother and father (Christianity) and rub the Nose in dirt of those who disrespect ur parents (Islam)

    The entire exam was a bit of a disaster; first most of us had no idea how to number the questions so it took like 4 mins to figure that out. Second my pens kept running out (lucky I had more lol) and third, there was soooooooo much external sound! Like, there were helicopters and students and vehicle sounds..... soooooo distracting!!! (It was definitely worded poorly! I did alternatives to abortion too (adoption and fostering) but idk. The paper itself was decent (kinda hard tbh) and I HATED the mark allocation but timing was definitely an issue. If I had an extra 10 mins, I would have done much better... A* thrown out the window, foresure :

    Hey guys. I wrote about alternatives to abortion but I feel the question was worded funny. It shouldve said options rather than choices. Or did I misinterpret the question?
    I wrote alternatives like fostering and all and I'm pretty sure that should be fine cause it's on the specification content and comes up often. Anything else that makes sense should too.

    I have just sat this exam too! I'm so worried as I think I may have lost like 12 marks, I forgot to put MY opinion on two of the six mark questions. Does anyone know what will happen? Do I get 0?

    I read some days ago on Yahoo answers that the opinion is not important if you did well in other paragraphs


    I was freaking out on the last question (prejudice) because it took so much figure out religion and planet earth!!

    Exactly the same! I wasted time adding quotes to that question and saying why Christians would prefer one over another. I couldn't finish my six marker at the end for war and peace I hope the grade boundaries are low.

    If you gave religious arguments and an alternative view you should get about 4/5

    Thank you so much for your reply! That is really reassuring. Are you certain because I've heard that if you don't give your opinion you automatically get 0/6.

    Guys lets just get over this and focus on the next paper, which for me is unit 3. I seriously need to time manage, I had to rush two whole questions (as in the Religion and Early Life and Religion Peace and War). I stood up and rushed the exam because that way I could write faster, the invigilator wouldn't stop staring at my lol I probably looked so desperate. I still didn't do the 6 marker on religion, war and peace so thats 6 marks gone for sure
