Hi, my RS A2 unit 3 exam is this Wednesday and I'm just wondering what I definitely should be revising for.

For philosophy, I've been revising religious language and religious experience. Should I be revising for critiques of religious belief too? Or do both religious language and religious experience questions come up in every exam?

For ethics, I've been revising meta-ethics, religion and morality and deontology. I'm a bit confused as to whether I need to revise virtue ethics or natural moral law AND deontology or whether I just pick one of the three?

If someone could let me know what topics I definitely 100% need to revise that would be great thanks!!

You need to revise all three regarding deontology, natural moral law and virtue ethics as either ones could come up.

Okay, so for ethics I need to revise deontology, virtue ethics, natural moral law, meta-ethics AND religion and morality? Am I missing anything?

And for philosophy should I be revising anything in addition to religious experience, religious language and critiques of religion? I don't understand how there's 5 topics within ethics that could appear in the exam but only 3 in the philosophy half.

Does the ontological argument definitely come up? Or is it possible it wont?

The only tine in wasnt there was the specimin question I think. But there's the possibility it could be spanned with critiques of religion

The ontological argument always comes up i think and as far as i know it is always paired with religious experience.

I never learnt about the ontological argument at my sixth-form so I'm guessing if you've revised for religious language, critiques of religion and religious experience you'll be ok

I'm taking the same paper on Wednesday too and I've revised Religious exp, Natural moral law, deontology, atheism, Life after death and left the whole of q4 out becauase I don't get it haha. I wouldn't bother revising ALL 3 of deontology, virtue ethics and NML because one of the two that you revise is always going to come up (I've missed out virtue ethics completely). I hope this makes sense??
Also I'm praying that R+M DOESN'T come up as I haven't revised it properly ahh!:nah:

R&M is due to come up as it didnt come up in AS and didnt come up last year! But you only have to do one Ethics, so if you're prepared for deontology & natural moral law you should be fine

But it could be combined with NML and then deontology is a separate question :P I'm hoping anyway!!
