Yeah I found it really good! I didn't like the mediums question either, and I didn't really like the c questions on community cohesion

Yeah in the last section I chose government and I think I didn't put enough points. Also, did anyone else run out of time because I feel I was the only one that did? I missed roughly 6 marks

Wait units did you do? I did unit 4 Islam... it was a good paper, yet as most people that community cohesion question threw me off! Question was similar to unit 1

^ same, also found the multi ethnic question quite hard - think i wrote a lot of irrelevant stuff for that just about having a religion in general - not too sure if i answered the question

Laws such as the Racial Harmony Act
Compulsory RE lessons
Compulsory RE exams - meaning students have to revise religions
Outreach programs which inform society of different religions

I wrote that there isn't any proof to mediums and ghosts. And in the why would some people disagree with me i wrote that some people might interpret jinns as ghosts(Islam). I'm pretty sure that there is nothing about how ghosts and mediums may lead someone to believing in God in my revision guide, so I may lose some marks.

I think you had to refer to Christianity to get any marks, not any religion :P (Unit 2 anyway)

Hey ya'll,

How did you answer the 4m questions? I looked at the mark scheme after the exam and apparently you needed to state your opinion and then develop it (provide examples) which I wasn't aware of so all I did was give my opinions, which is apparently only worth 2m...

So, my question is, did you guys give examples for the 4m questions?

I sadly didn't put too much effort or revision into my Religious Studies, because I was confident I would get an A*/A, and I did lots of practise papers too, but seeing the grade boundaries made me re-evaluate my initial predictions - hoping I'll SCRAPE AN A or at least get a B.

And yes, the community cohesion question was pretty challenging.
I also found the "why is family life important to religions other than Christianity?" worth 8m quite difficult as well.

Also what did you all write for the "should everyone have a religious upbringing?" question.
