    So, I’m currently failing in RE GCSE and I’m jealous for people that are getting level 6 and up (B => A).Would I be able to go Cambridge or Oxford if I failed this, how can I do better ? Thanks!

    don’t worry!
    first of all, what year are you?
    unless you’re looking to do something that is based around RE - the whole oxbridge thing wouldn’t be a problem.

    i can help if you want?

    I’m year 11 and luckily I WON’T do RE at uni but I was wondering that top universities would expect that everything is at least passed “C” grade; What I need is how I can answer the questions more accurately (gain more marks on questions d-type)

    in my school we use RISK (religious teaching, impact on people, source, keywords) so for a d question you would do 4 RISK paragraphs using different religions/denominations. also always include an atheist/humanist viewpoint in a d question. all you really need to do is remember key quotes that you can use for almost any topic, it doesnt matter if you use the same one again and again

    I loved the d-type marks in the end!! I did mine in Welsh where we said TYYB which translated into: T= Testun (Subject), not that it’s mandatory but basically to rephrase the question and asking a question on the end, challenging what your about to say. Y=Yr ochr (the side (talking good/bad about the question, usually 3-4 points). Y= Yr ochr arall (the other side), talking about whatever side you didn’t talk about in the first “Y” (with the same principle. The amount of points made doesn’t have to equal each other- as long as there are roughly 8) and lastly B=barn (opinion).. says it for itself, but basically summing everything up (make sure it sides with the “Y” with the most points)


    I don’t know if that goes totally off what your asking and I don’t know how you do it in general, but if it helps?
