Due to clashes in timetabling i was forced to choose RS as my final GCSE. From my first class I've hated it. It is consistently depressing and boring. Being an atheist makes a tough subject even harder as being brought up in a christian family gives others an advantage.
I have no idea how to cope with it, with my exam coming up in 6 months I'm either going to have to drop it or take the E/D.

huh? surely it should make it easier in terms of analysing and criticising religious perspectives.

I kinda worded that badly
I am an Atheist. Others being brought up in a christian family probably would have been taught bible verses and teaching their whole life, not just the past 2 years.

Speak to your Head of Year about it.

I would rather step on some Lego in the middle of the night than study RE/RS.

I endorse this advice though steadfast radicalism is perhaps not the best introduction.

knowing bible verses is a relatively small part of RS gcse. you can do pretty well just knowing a small selection of important teachings to be used well.

a lot of it, including the ethics side, needs somewhat good analytical skills, and a level of cynicism and common sense. Being able to write well is always a plus.
