Hi, the AS philosophy exam is on Thursday an I'm not entirely sure how I'm supposed to the structure my answers. The only two philosophy and ethics teachers at my school have been ill for the past month or so and my school isn't finding a replacement. If anyone could offer me any help I would appreciate it so much.
Thanks.

Ah not so sure however so (judging from your other posts) say if it was a cosmological argument question, you can start with an intro of the cosmological argument ie: the cosmological argument attempts to prove the existence of God using our universe as a starting point. Additionally, it attempts to explain why we live in something rather than nothing.

If the steer of the question is simply asking you to explain it, give a small profile of aquinas (1224-1274) and his ways using terminology such as posteriori, inductive, synthetic, God as the role of unmoved mover etc, rejection of infinite regress and appropriate analogies

Im not sure on the differences between ocr and aqa but say the question was how the cosmo proved god existed, embed parts of your question in your part B and counter argue (dont give all reasons in agreeing then reasons against, do swapsies) and remember dates and books/articles and MUST come to a conclusion, ie there are weaknesses as it's flawed etcetc
