I'm assuming you're referring to Religious studies...

Yes, it's heavily essay based and contains an unholy amount of content to learn; of which you're only tested in a tiny amount.

If you're doing OCR then I guess I could help you since I got an A* overall (98.5 UMS in A2 and similar in AS). I could send you my notes or essays etc... but I think there's a new spec so I'm not sure how that would play out!!

Definitely. But I think a lot of it is your own opinions, and I can write about my opinions for days xD

I'm afraid not, I'm choosing mine too and weighing up the workload is hard! I think they work quite well together as chem & bio aren't essay based.

I guess a balance of essays and non essays are good so thank you

I could send you some of my essays, A2 has long essays that are quite similar to the new spec!!! What sort of topics are you struggling on/ starting soon?

Thank you, i have just had my first RE class today so i'm not really struggling on anything at the moment. Although as i'm doing a linear course i'm sure your A2 essays will be useful so if you could send them i'm sure they'll be worthwhile in future.
