Anyone else struggling to do wider reading for this AS? I can't understand what the examiner is looking for.

Wider reading? I've done that exam so many times and wider reading is not a requirement. It can be useful, but not essential. What don't you understand?

It's a new exam that's just come out this academic year. The textbook came out in March, 2 months before the exam. Teachers keep telling me that I can't score more than an E without it, but wider reading doesn't tend to tell me much more than what we've done in the lesson.

Ah right, I thought they only updated the specification slightly from last year? Do you still do epistemology alongside philosophy of Religion?

Nope. Just philosophy and ethics (paley's teleo, aquinas' cosmo, anselm's onto, evil and suffering, religious experiences, natural moral law, situation ethics, virtue ethics and applications plus some religion stuff)
