    Who is taking this paper? I'm taking it again to boost my UMS so I can get an A* at A-Level.

    Suggestions as to what I think will come up:
    • Natural Moral Law
    • Absolutism and Relativism
    • Medical Ethics (Abortion/Embryo Research/Genetic Engineering)
    • War and Peace
    How are you all feeling?

    You will be fine. I promise. What came up?

    Last years questions were about personhood, aristotle, kant and abs/rel, if I remember rightly.

    With all due respect, it's not my job to tutor you. That's your teacher's job. This is a thread to discuss things. Asking that sort of question at this stage is troubling - it's unlikely the user is to do well if they haven't been practising that for at least a year now. I simply said I don't really know how to explain it because I don't - I just do it. I will try but please don't attempt to be rude about me - it isn't up to me to teach you something you should have already been taught.

    I respect that but leaving it until the week of the exam to try and figure it out is lousy of you - you've lost an entire year of practice. I can try and explain it; please select an exam question you'd like me to use in order to explain this.

    Explain how a follower of Natural Moral Law might respond to the issues surrounding Genetic Engineering.
    1. Write one sentence foregrounding a minimum of three issues surrounding genetic engineering that are easy to link with Natural Moral Law.
    2. Start by explaining Natural Moral Law, possibly in a paragraph only, and do not evaluate. You lose marks for evaluating the issues/theories/application topic in section (a) questions.
    3. Address each individual issue and comment on how followers of Natural Moral Law would approach such an issue.
    4. Do not give a conclusion.

    If you want me to write bits, please ask. I am more than happy to write full explanations of each theory and list all of the key issues surrounding each application topic should you feel that is to be helpful.
