    I know it depends on the person but do you think I'll find it alright?

    I have a really good memory so I can remember millions of case studies and theories.

    I've always been good at writing essays - arguing and evaluating and all that. The only problem is, I can't do this on the spot. I'm one of those students who has to know what kind of questions will pop up and I have everything really prepared and practically memorised.

    I did my A-S levels which didn't go very well, I've had a year out and I'm (hopefully) going to go back in September. I did geography and psychology which were okay, but english-lit and history were a nightmare!

    Is R.S on the same level as psychology? I've heard some people say it's as hard as history 😕

    I did RS as a gcses and it was simple. You just need to remember everything in the revision book they give you.

    The answer is yes.

    The answer to your other question about having everything prepared: you can - work through the pastpapers and theres only so many questions they can ask you.

    At university it's even easier to predict questions and/or to plan your individual answer.

    I did the Scottish equivalent so it may not be completely accurate to the English course.
    But I am best at arts subjects such as history and politics and I struggled with the course, it took a lot of hard work but I think I got there in the end. It's certainly not impossible to excel in but do not mistake it for an "easy" subject like I did. But once you know what you're doing, the pattern in essays is fairly persistent. Hope this helps! Very interesting course though.
