I have my RE GCSE exam this Wednesday and I briefly know how to structure my six markers (Point Evidence Explain), but do I need to add a conclusion at the end or is not necessary?

Defiantly add a conclusion and your opinion relating back to the first sentence. LOL I remember when I sat my RE gcse we studies Hinduism and Christianity and I used my own religion (not one of those two studied) and got marks. Obsticals. A*

Okay thankyou! I am so desperate to get top marks for RE lol. I remember when I had mocks back when I was in year 8 for RE and if i couldn't think of a quote I just used to make my own up! Sometimes I'd get away with it but most of the time they caught me out lol!!

My RE exam is on the OCR board. The top mark questions are a maximum of 6 marks, though the grade bounderies are quite high! I think it's 48 marks for a C.

If you're doing AQA RS
For the 6 markers just talk about religious view for and against the statement. In my practice mocks a conclusion isn't required unless they ask about you're opinion. If they ask about religious believers view then no conclusion.

Edit: Oops I just read you're doing OCR sorry I can't be much help.

That's for 12-mark questions.

For 6-mark questions, which just involve a detailed explanation of one viewpoint from one religion on a certain issue, you don't need a conclusion. 6-mark questions are not essays and you won't get any marks for weighing up opposing viewpoints in them.

So for the 6 markers, (say if the topic was abortion) shall I do one paragraph saying abortion is right with a religious quote then explanation. Then another paragraph saying abortion is wrong with a religious quote and explanation? Would I be leaning towards the six marks if I structured it in that way?

If the topic is abortion, the question will be something like "Explain [religion] views on abortion." How you answer depends on the religion you're describing, but for Christianity for instance, you might do a paragraph on Catholicism and the idea that life begins at conception and absolute morality then a paragraph on other denominations, suggesting that life does not begin at conception, the fetus' life is not absolutely sacrosanct or people should do whatever is the most loving option. Ultimately, I'd say don't worry about formulae like "2 paragraphs with a PEE structure" - just answer the question.
