    Well you've missed approximately a year and a half's worth of lessons... if you could get extra lessons and help every day and you pick it up quickly then I'd say you could as it's not a particularly heavy subject, but you'd really need to work

    Most of it's common sense to be honest and then a lot of religious quotes to reuse. I'd say no, unless you like disappointment. It's an easy subject mostly but there is just a lot a lot of information and random crap to remember like the reasons for a just war and random articles from law. If you somehow managed to get away without doing it in yr9 then isay don't bother there are a lot of other subjects you need to do well in

    It's sometimes easier if you're actually religious yourself, as rather than trying to remember what a certain religion thinks, you just write your opinion

    I think you should be fine tbh. (Depending on your exam board) much of RS is just technique and quotes.
    A majority of my years received Cs and below in mocks but then came out with A*s in the end..you just need to pretty much learn the points in the textbook and you'll be fine 👍🏼
