    Hi, I'm doing OCR RE this year but I got an A* in my mocks.
    For part d, you do 3 PEEL paragraphs. Include a Bible quote for each paragraph (or Bible reference/religious teaching). Remember these are all Christian points of view. For each point, mention the denomination too. This should take around 6 minutes.

    For part e, you get more choice about what you do. My teacher told me you get about 2 marks per paragraph. Follow the same structure for part d (include quotes/teachings and denominations). We follow SONIC - the paragraphs are as follows:
    Some Christians
    Other Christians
    Non - Christians (mention which religion and include a teaching/ quote from their religion too)
    I (your own opinion - include a quote/ teaching too. Even if you're an atheist, you need to support your point)
    Conclusion (not just a sentence - maybe three or four summing up differences in opinion).

    Choose another paragraph to do of your choice to guarantee full marks for part e. You could do another Christian point of view, another religion, or an introduction.
    Altogether, part e should take about 15 minutes max.

    I hope that helps

    This is exactly what you should do as I got an A* in my RS GCSE. Currently take it A Level.

    Exactly what I did for each and every question and it always works.

    It's really interesting. But a lot harder than GCSE. I did OCR GCSE. But now doing OCR AS Level. There is only an A question worth 25 marks and a B question worth 10 marks! So different. I currently do ethics with christian theology. There both split as 50:50 exams. Ethics is by far my favourite and for me the easiest but Christian theology is a lot harder and harder to understand but on the whole I do enjoy RS and want to take it next year as long as I get a B minimum

    Yeah I guess so. Just anything related to the religion that can act as evidence to support your point.
