I did my RS GCSE last year so it's been a while, but essentially what you need to do is choose 3-4 key features of whatever the question is asking you to explain and devote a paragraph to each, using quotations from scripture in each paragraph to back up what you're saying. For instance, if the question is something like "Explain the significance of salvation in Christianity", you'd find 3 to 4 ways in which it contributes to the Christian worldview and describe each one. If you're asked to explain what [a religious group] believes about something, you could talk about what different denominations/sects believe or the context of the beliefs.

Just finished RS GCSE (Edexcel), sitting the exams in summer 2017. Not sure if you are doing the new syllabus but, if not, I would recommend 3-4 points per paragraph with strong support using quotes. If they ask you about differences, do one paragraph on one sect/set of beliefs with variation, and then the next of the other. Very short intro (literally two or three lines). This worked for me at GCSE with 100% in my RS gcse so hope it helps you.

In my school we do a 2 KISSJ and a conclusion

K - knowledge. So basically the point
I-impact. How this point impacts people’s lives / influences them .
S-source of wisdom. Quotes
S-specialist language. And key word eg. Bible or encyclical
J-judgement why this is a sting or weak argument. DO NOT say why YOUR paragraph is weak / strong just say why people would believe the point
.

You can do these in any order but leave the judgement till last
