Making a thread/place where everyone can advise each other, list ideas and tips and basically just talk about the exam, the worries, question predictions and everything to do with it

I'm doing Units 1 & 8 (Christianity and Islam), but other units are similar sooo it won't matter if everyone's doing different exams on here. Current and ex-students welcome. Looking forward to hearing others' ideas!

I'm doing Unit 1 and 11 and my advice is for the D question - you must mention a religion to get over half marks, but if you don't know any points about the religion, make it up. Even if it's incorrect, you've mentioned a religion and you can get 4-6 marks!

I don't think that one really needed quotes, just knowledge of traditions. I guess maybe you could have used "honour your father and your mother" from the Ten Commandments

Is anyone doing the Developments paper. Can someone please tell me is Natural Law guaranteed to come up, or will it be Virtue Ethics and Deontology instead?

It is likely but not guaranteed to come up, as sometimes they only put two of the three (virtue ethics/deontology/NML) in the paper, so there is a chance that NML will not come up.

You could get away with learning just two but definitely not natural moral law by itself. It's likely that'll it'll come up as there has not been a year it has not, but there have been years Virtue ethics/ deontology haven't come up so I wouldn't bet on not revising for more than one.

Best of luck!!

Does anyone know whether the ontological argument will come up on its own or whether I have to learn religious experience and non-belief too?
