    Is the soul not on the spec for our year? We have learnt about it in class
    We never did it last year, only briefly. I managed to get a C on philosophy and an A in ethics and got a B overall with one mark off an A which is why im resitting but when i've put snippets in from A2 i've got more marks in practise papers so maybe we needed to know it. idk

    The predictions are Plato, Ontological, Religion and Science (Intelligent Design) and Problem of Evil... The first two I would love but I'm not sure on the other two. What are you all thinking?

    I think everyone will go for the first two if true, meaning it's harder to score as high. I think I'd have a crack at PofE and Plato depending on the question and how narrow it is

    I do not understand the idea behind this- an a grade answer is an a grade answer. The exam is not UMS based, surely it won't matter?

    I'm not sure? I've always been told by my subject teachers that they take a certain percentage of pupils for each grade. I suppose the way it works is that they have to justify how one piece of work gets one extra mark than another, and then they base the grade boundaries on how many pupils. I'm not sure, just going by what ive been told
    Suppose we all wrote an A grade answer in the exam, they couldn't reward everybody with an A, if that makes sense? And my teacher said they mark your answer to whatever question you do alongside others of this question to justify your mark. I suppose on that basis it might work? Not too sure though!

    -Cannot assume effect from cause. If I hail a bus to stop, the idea that it stops because I raised my hand is absurd. There can be many other reasons why it stopped
    - Fallacy of composition- just because we see cause and effect, does not mean the universe is caused
    - Why can the universe not be necessary instead of God?
    - Why can there be no infinite cause and effect?
    - Even if we accept to the argument, it still does not point to a JC God

    Won't load for me either but I had the page open from a few days ago -
    1.a. Explain the Natural Law theory of ethics.

    b. “Natural Law theory is inflexible when considering issues surrounding abortion”. Discuss

    Rationale: it’s about time we had natural law actually named in a question.

    2. a. Contrast the utilitarianism of Mill with that of Singer.

    b. “Singer’s utilitarianism is superior to Mill’s”. Discuss

    Rationale: Singer isn’t mentioned very often but he’s in the syllabus. So why not this year do a contrast?

    3. a. Explain a Kantian approach to issues surrounding going to war.

    b. “Kant’s approach would guarantee peace”. Discuss

    Rationale: I think war or pacifism is coming up this year. Why not link it to Kant, who after all wrote an essay on perpetual peace?

    4. a. Explain what is meant by an absolute theory of ethics. (or – contrast absolute and relative theories of ethics).

    b. “Absolute ethics is inflexible”. Discuss

    Rationale: absolutism in a question hasn’t been asked for some time.

    I wish the best of luck to you and hope that you understand that 'bad' results do not determine your worth when school expects people with different abilities to learn the same thing at the same speed.
