For moral philosophy its hard to say, every year its either moral truths or moral decision making. So i reckon on moral decision making it will be utilitarianism because it was deontology and virtue ethics last year. But then again i reckon deontology might just come up or it might just be virtue ethics. Best thing to do is revise everything, then chat just make up a couple of moral problems and apply it to the theories that's what i'm doing.

Hi, I also did religion, I chose miracles aswell. How did you think you done? Tbh this unit is extremely hard you just can't guess what questions will come up. What section are you doing for unit 4?

i think my response was high B, i had a feeling miracles was going to come up but the plan in my head was for miracles being rational, so i felt my answer was all over the place, i bought up arfuements about possibilty of miracles eg. Hume balance of probabilities and swineburne principle of cruedility but i dont know if that was relevent. what did you write about?

im doing Mill for unit 4, its the most straight forward and i revised alot of it for phil 3 poltical philosophy wbu?

How did everyone find their papers? I was actually fairly happy with the questions given on political philosophy and philosophy if religion! What grades do you need to get in these exams for uni?

did anyone do philosophy of mind? I chose the second question which was something like 'talk about the mental is useless because everything is physical' which I took as being about physicalist accounts of mind, but the rest of my class wrote a standard eliminative materialism essay...am I utterly screwed?

The criticisms for the claim that I looked at were Hume's view on religious pluralism, Wiles' moral perspective and Flew's criticism on direct experience and view on miraculous accounts. Then for strengths I looked at Aquinas, Hick, C.S Lewis, Holland, C.D Broad, Clack and Clack and Swinburne. I did more strengths then criticisms. I think I got a B in it, but I reckon might have scraped an A, well that's if marking is similar to last year. But I would be really happy if I get a B.

I am doing Plato for unit 4, tbh unit 4 is pretty decent compared to unit 3 because there is so much to remember. Good luck on unit 4

I did mind! I also chose that question. I've always found they are very open, I went from MBIT>PROPERTY DUALISM>EPIPHENOMENALISM . you could pretty much write anything.

I did political philosophy too, I chose 'what state is best for human well being' and I also picked the miracles question. I thought that paper was okay. Miracles was very specific too but I talked about Hume in detail and then theological objections.
