    I thought the question said explain the weaknesses of hicks soul making theory and the response of process throught to the problem of evil so i structured my answer around it. After talking with friends they just went through weaknesses of both so im not sure sry

    It went so averagely, i did OA and problem of evil and thought the questions were kind of bad. Basically all A02 and i dont think i distinguished A01 and 2 or focused on the q and i forgot about faith and reason for the ontological argument so hardly wrote enough

    I also read the question as explain the weaknesses of hick's vale of soul making and then explain process thought so I answered it as a two part question which is what many people I spoke to did.

    That's hard to answer, some including myself answered it as hick's weaknesses and THEN process thought in responce to problem of evil
    Whereas others just did the weaknesses of both .
    I think the first answer is the right one just because the and was bolded and when questions are set out like that, it is done to suggest there are two parts

    No, I am pretty sure the question was explain the weaknesses of Hick's vale of soul making theodicy and explain process thought. So explain how it defends God's existence in the light of evil. hope that helped, how did you answer or interpret the question?

    I'm fairly certain that the Hick question was to explain the weaknesses to both responses. The question was "Explain the weaknesses of Hick's vale of soul making AND Process thought as solutions to the problem of evil." Many on here seem to have been confused by the "AND" part, followed by "as solutions to the problem of evil". But all you had to do was talk about the weaknesses.

    Was is not and the response of process thought to the problem of evil, cause if it was just the weaknesses then the ao2 and ao1 were practically the same and that would be careless on the part of the exam board

    Im pretty sure it was weaknesses of both, which was veryyy careless with the ontological A01 being weaknesses/strengths too. Soo annoying

    I did OA and religious language. The questions weren't a straight forward as previous years but I think I answered them well so hopefully it will be okay!

    I know mate, my teacher said that they meant both weaknesses, however due to the vagueness of the question they'll accept anything (within reason obviously). This happened last year so it's something they're ok with doing.

    Thank you for that clarification! So hopefully arguing weakness for Hick and then explaining process thought should be okay. Also I saw that if you only answer one part of the question the maximum marks you can get is 23 which is not too much of a deduction from the original 30 .

    Yeah I saw that! So 23 out of 30 is around 76%, it's only 80% ish normally for an A* so we should be fine. Good luck
