    SAME! I was so happy! Do you think the mark scheme will be low because it's a new syllabus?
    hi, i am 200% sure that we are still in the old spec as new spec is for linear courses. this is AS and A2 so it is not the new syllabus.

    Unfortunatrly, I don't think so. The questions were relatively general; meaning people are most likely to get high marks; making the grade boundaries high. It will be taken into account however, that this I should the first year of the new course,

    Definitely not a question on Cosmological Argument. It was about the biblical concept of God as a Creator and Craftsman.

    What would you talk about in the essay 'explain the difference between absolute and relative morality' for 25 marks? I feel like I don't have enough to say about it to attempt an essay like that, does anyone know what I should talk about?

    For applied ethics embryo research might come up and euthanasia, also relative morality and moral absolutism.

    If you get a 25 marker on "explain the approach of the religion you have studied in response to the issues of embryo research", could you make the essay solely about a natural law approach? It seems weird to do that if hypothetically there were to be another 25 marker just on natural law. I haven't covered Christian ethics.
