    Does anyone know what the predicted questions are for the 2016 OCR A2 Philosophy of Religion exam and the Religious Ethics exam? I was going to use pepe.org to find out (they've been something like 80% right over the years in predicting questions) but the website is down!

    Question 1
    a) Explain Plato’s theory of Forms.
    b) Assess the claim that Plato does not value experience enough.

    This is the last year of this paper, Plato has not been asked since 2013 but Plato’s Forms were not asked about since 2012.

    Question 2
    a) Explain Anselm’s Ontological Argument.
    b) Assess Gaunilo’s challenge to Anselm.

    The Ontological Argument was not asked since 2013. St Anselm was not asked since 2010.

    Question 3
    a) Explain Hume’s criticisms of the cosmological argument.
    b) To what extent was Hume successful in his critique of the cosmological argument?

    The Cosmological Argument was asked in 2014, but Hume’s challenges were not asked since 2011.

    Question 4
    a) Explain the theodicies of both Augustine and Irenaeus.
    b) ‘There is no solution to the problem of evil and suffering.’ Discuss.

    In 2014 the problem of evil was asked, but the theodicies were not asked since 2013. That question was about both theodicies. As it is the last paper it is likely at least one of the theodicies will be asked, perhaps both.
