Just to be clear this is for the exam on

If anyone has any predictions pls sharee!
This is the sample questions so it likely these wont come up and everything else probably will.

1* ‘The strengths of natural law outweigh its weaknesses.’ Discuss. [30]

2* Assess the view that Fletcher’s Situation Ethics gives no useful guidance for making moral decisions. [30]

3* Assess the view that euthanasia is always morally wrong

It wasnt bad although I wasnt expecting natural law since it was on the mock paper.
We did business ethics but I didn't revise it anyway, its wayyyy too hard
Did NL and Kantian but started to ran out on time on Kantian so didn't write all I wanted to

Did Q1 and Q3. Thought they were quite kind questions.
Natural Law is relatively simple to revise and could be applied to the question quite easily.
Business Ethics is one of my strongest topics so it was okay. Just based all my points on Kantian and Utilitarian perspectives.

Does anyone's teacher have the proof copy of the textbook? Mine does, when I told her the titles, she thought the Kant one sounded similar to one we'd written before. The Kant and Natural Law questions, from the actual, official AS paper came from the proof copy of the textbook, word for word. The proof textbook has 4 titles at the end of each chapter as opposed to the 2 in the published textbook. I didn't recognise it in the exam, but I'd written the Kant essay before, at Christmas, so there wasn't really any benefit as I obviously couldn't remember having written it. We checked and it didn't happen with philosophy, but it could happen for DCT.

Hi I was just wondering if anyone who did these 3 papers could tell me which questions came up or maybe the general topics for each paper (philosophy, ethics and development in Christian thought) Thank you

I'm thinking of studying RS next year, is it a hard alevel? I really enjoyed it at gcse, but they've introduced a new specification. Would you advice me to take it? I really do enjoy it😊

I would highly recommend it, it is very hard in my opinion but all a levels are the concepts can be quite difficult to get your head around at first but if you put the work in you'll do just fine. Its incredibly interesting (I also found the GCSE really interesting which is why I chose this and I'm so glad I did) and a great a level to have I hope this was helpful

I thought the salvation question could have been linked to Life after death rather than just Augustine? Both topics seemed valid to answer the question.
