    I’m in Year 10 atm so we have just started Catholicism, and Judaism and Themes were genuinely boring, I also found it challenging as I couldn’t remember all the correct Jewish Terminology. I ended themes with an 8 and Judaism with a 7. I’m hoping that because I’m Catholic I’ll find it easy, aha

    i'm finishing judaism next week and i actually find it A LOT easier than catholicism haha with the catholicism section, the content is so hefty and i personally found it harder for some strange reason, as i'm still trying to wrap my head around triune god and eschatology :') good luck!

    Thanks Girl.... well for RE I revise by repetitive reading, videos, close analysis of the textbook, and exam practice!!!! In our Judaism test that I found out the results today the grade boundaries were: 75% = 6, 90% =8 and I think 62% was a 4!!! But I think in the real GCSEs a 9 will be 95%+ and a 5 will be 45-55%!!!

    thanks x what videos do you use?

    yeahhh, those grade boundaries are ridiculously high, hopefully a 5 is around 45-55%. i'm astonished that an 8 is 90%, shouldn't it be lower? like 85%? they do only make grade boundaries after marking the papers, so we'll see how it goes
