Is anyone doing the WJEC exam board for RE, Philosophy and Ethics for AS level?

I feel so unprepared for the upcoming exams on the Contemporary Society topics Freud, Jung, Animal Rights and Euthanasia. Anyone have any ideas of how I can spend my time wisely to remember as much information as possible with the little time I have left?

We had to do a 'practice test' in exam conditions and for RE I got a U...
However, for Philosophy I got an A.

Any advice, please? I haven't found any forums for the WJEC exam board!

Thanks,

What topics do you plan on writing about for philosophy and ethics? Divide each topic into smaller subsections and learn key words from each subsection that you can remember in order to jog your memory during the exam.

So for example, here's what I've done for Utilitarianism:

Relativistic
Consequentialist
Teleological
Principle of Utility
Hedonic Calculus
Higher/lower pleasures
Strong/weak

I'm resitting the AS exam this year, I would make essay plans for each topic you think will come up-make sure they're not longer than a page! also looking at the examiners comments from last year might help; they seemed pleased so I doubt that they will put in topics that came up last year. Overall they seemed annoyed that no one could really explain a topic in relation to something (stuaiton ethics applied to homosexuality)-so maybe this TYPE of question will be done again. The link for the report is below.https://www.wjec.co.uk/examiner-repo...language_id=1I honestly think that these are likely to come up: Religious experienceThe Problem of Evil (perhaps wanting to reference Augustine and Iranaeus)Cosmological Argument Natural LawDivine command theoryVirtue theory Hope this helps!
