    exactly...the grade boundaries will probably drop quite a bit because we dont have the textbook etc. so im just trying not to worry. its not in the best intrest of the board to give us super hard questions because then the results will be worse.

    It’s just a complete mess, like the ethics textbook hasn’t been released yet, teachers are clueless to how to mark essays ((we looked at an AO1 question from the exam board and it was a paragraph and they gave it 20/20)) then the content is so big .. it’s just so much to take in with only two years of learning it

    To be honest its just not good enough. For that much content and that little resources - its a joke. I'm just going to do essay questions and hope it works - if not i hope they will drop the grade boundaries drastically.

    Yeah we are all hoping for the grade boundaries to be dropped. One of my teachers even told me that the exam board produced two more extra philosophy topics but so many people have complained saying it’s not fair making content so late in the year that they are refusing to teach it

    honestly what im doing at the minute is (1) Planning brief essays, (2) solidifying my knowledge on every topic so if worst comes to worst i can at least ramble about something, (3) also going into mad detail on a fair few topics, and (4) just revising a ton of quotes, bible quotes/areas (i.e. Judges 19 - The Levite and his Concubine, Joshua 6 - falling of the walls of Jericho, of course i know specific Bible quotes but i cbf).

    For the most part i think that the example questions and AS questions might not come up, they still easily could but who actually knows

    Its an absolute joke honestly but we just gotta ride it out, good luck lads
