Question 4 was 'Explain one religious ethical theory' or something. Most people chose Christian Ethics but as Natural Law revolves around Christianity it would be regarding as a religious ethical theory.

I'm worried about question 4 because it said "explain one religious ethical theory" but I took that to mean Christian Ethics as a whole, so I talked about Divine Command Theory, Natural Law Theory, and Jesus' ethics, which is three different theories so maybe not answering the question...do you think I'll be all right?

I think you put too much info but they won't mark you down for it as long as you have all the necessary information, unless your examiner is really really harsh. But usually they don't mind if you waffle AS LONG AS you have the necessary information.

For the kant 25 question how much emphasis did people put on the aims of his theory. I explained the theory and then did a paragraph on what it's aim is

I don't think you'll be marked down for that, the summum bonum relates directly to his views on God so it's just one extra point you could have added. As long as the main parts are there e.g. categorical imperatives, duty and good will, and quotes and terminology, you should be ok

I emphasised the importance of duty by following the categorical imperative then talked about his universal law, humanity formula, Kingdom of ends. I mentioned how it aimed to teach all humans should be rational and autonomous, and everyone should be treated equally,also added a bit about Good Will. All with examples
