    I have my GCSE RE exam coming up in May and it will be my first GCSE (apart from my art option) and I really need help revising. So far, I revise using my notes and answering a few exam questions but this isn't exactly working. My target is a B but my teacher thinks I am capable of an A or even an A*.
    I need some revision tips to help me at least get a high B, if not an A.
    Thank You

    If it helps, for my mock, there were four sections - two Christianity and two Islam. I managed to answer both Christianity ones in great detail that I got an A* and an A on them but since I spent too long on them, I didn't have time to answer the last two properly, leaving me with a C.

    Damn...nearly one year ago I did my RE GCSE I don't really know what I did but there was this Dude on YouTube called MrMacmillian or something like that he did Roman Catholic Christianity but I guess it might still help.

    The Edexcel RS revision guide was what I personally used and it was so helpful -

    You could also look at some of the videos for help -

    Good luck!

    For edexcel, just do loads and loads and loads of practice questions, then look at your weaker areas, revise them and do more questions.
    The structure of the paper is the same for every section.
    I mainly revised from practice questions and managed to get 94%, A*.

    I would also recommend MrMcMillanREvis - he really helped me out. I was on OCR but I made a video about tackling poverty with Christian quotes and stuff if you're interested? We had a competition in class and I won :P
