Hi i'm taking GCSE Pearson RE and I need some sort of checklist to know what to revise. I know the headings like belief in God etc. But I need to know specifically what is under each one eg. Paranormal. The exam is on Monday and unit 8 on Wednesday, so it would be great if someone could respond as soon as possible. Thanks

This is just the 4 topics for the first unit, it seems long but trust me you can get through all this before your exam! I did the same exam last year and I aced it. Typing all this reminds me of all the revision I did and it's all coming back. Anyway, for now focus on those topics! If you need help with the rest please don't hesitate to PM me. I still have my revision guide for both the units, I'm always available for any help you may require! Good luck for your exam!

I'm not sure if we're doing the same course but I have my RE exams on the same dates. My revision guide says "Religion and Life (Unit 1) and Religion and Society (Unit 8) Christianity and Islam", so maybe it's the same. The contents page has a list of topics. Please tell me the specification code on your exam timetable so I can check if it's the same as mine. Good luck!
