Mind maps.
PRACTICE QUESTIONS LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW.
Memorise exam technique,
Mind Maps, Flow Charts and Labelling. They all help you memorise links between different aspects of the question, for example: if I gave you 3 points that you have expand on, this could be easily achieved when you relate them all together, this can the help explain by covering all the bases.

Learn like 3 quotes from the Bible and then remember "Ahimsa means non-violence" and use that whenever you want.

R.E GCSE exams are marked by question separately, so you can just use the same quotes in different questions and they won't realise.

I did this and got an A* too! You just have to look for patterns in questions.

I'm on AQA.

I have mind maps on how to answer the questions for their mark value (because I was originally answering mine all wrong as our teacher didn't teach us how to answer them but now I know I'm getting near full marks)

Mind maps with the topic in the middle e.g 'Animal Rights' and then key words with definitions around incase one of the 2 mark questions asks for a definition (or you need to define in a 4 mark answer).

Mind maps of religious quotes. We are doing Christian and Islam for the first paper and a whole range of religions for the second, make sure you write down also what the quote means.

Flash cards with a trigger word/picture on one side, and the quote on the other just so you don't go mind blank and use 'thou shall not kill' for everything in the exam

Also time management, idk if it's just me but I find it really hard to produce quality answers with less than 20 minutes per topic, my hand always aches by the end so at home I try to practice under time.

Thanks, the way your school does it seem really difficult, in my school we learn christianity and buddhism for both units only. you know for the last/6 markers, my teacher told me evaluate. what does that mean? same as conclusion or something?

I studied Buddhism and Christianity as well. Focus on learning what each religion thinks about each topic. For Christianity, look at different branches of the religion. Learn about what Catholics and Anglicans believe and how that differs.

Evaluate means essentially to look at the positives and negatives about it and contrast different points of view.

Evaluating on a six marker basically means (considering you to Christianity and Buddhism) one agree quote from them both, explain it and say how it causes a religious person to act, one disagree quote from them both, explain it and say how it causes a religious person to act, include some of the ethics and why it may be morally right and morally wrong, and then come to a conclusion. It's so tight that you have to include ALL of that for the six marker in 6-8 minutes!
