    No and I would suggest you don't - it is better to stick to what you have.

    On AQA you learn 4 themes, which take up 50% of the course. These are humanitarian issues, religious issues on things like abortion, faith, etc. More religion and society in general than a specific religion. You get 1 paper, and a full question on each theme.

    You then learn 2 religions, most commonly Christianity and Islam. You do 2 questions on each religion, 1 on practices and one on beliefs and teachings. You have to learn quotes for the exam.

    A full question is a 1 marker, 2 marker, 4 marker, 5 marker and 12 marker.

    PLEASE DO NOT SELF-STUDY A GCSE OK

    if you're confident in self teaching it - then go ahead, but be careful that you don't waste your own time.
