    I'm currently doing the AQA RS GCSE, and it's literally the subject I am finding the hardest. Last year I got a C in the first mock exam - that's horrible for me in comparison to all my other exams, in which I mostly got A*s. My general method for revision is to make notes from the textbook, but in the case of RS I often find many questions to be based on things which you cannot fluently answer from just memorising the textbook - in many cases you have to make up part of the answer.
    To summarise, is there any efficient and successful method any of you guys have used to do well in RS? Any help would be appreciated.

    Memorise a few key teachings that could be applicable everywhere. Don't just quote the holy books, but also teachings from religious scholars, theologists etc. Use long big words to make it seem like you know what you're talking about (not even joking). And learn the exam technique. Learn how to answer each type of question including the 6-marker. The types of questions remain the same every year. Understand what you need to do to get 3 marks or 4 marks etc.

    what unit's/topics are you doing? I did Religion and Morality for my paper 1 and then for paper 2 i did Religion and Ultimate questions and I came out with an A* so if you need help and you do them papers (or even just one) let me know
