    There are enough topics that I doubt an AS topic will come up again (Problem of evil, Cosmological, Body mind and soul). I'm not going to risk it though. Are any of you dropping a topic? You can afford to drop one and then answer the other three if it comes up. Tempted to drop 20th century perspectives or religious language because I hate them. This is my most stressful exam - praying for low boundaries..

    I'm heavily considering dropping religious language and hoping to god that doesnt come up or if it does the other three questions are okay.. At this point I'm so stressed none of the info is sticking in my head and I feel as though I've forgotten absolutely everything. I wish we had to do one 40 marker and then like a 20 marker and a 10 marker or something....

    that's exactly what i'm doing, i find it so hard to evaluate religious language and it's so long so i'm dropping it. praying for abnormally low grade boundaries

    I'm hoping religious experience doesn't come up not matter how much I revise it it just won't stick. Everything else I'm fine with. Any predictions???

    I don't think(!) the AS topics that came up last year will come up again. I've dropped 20th century perspectives, so hopefully that doesn't come up. The topics on the specimen paper are arguments based on reason, religious language (analogy and symbol), body and soul, and religious experience.

    I'm terrified lol I definitely haven't revised enough
    If it's any consolation my teacher told us that the people who revise less often do better because not knowing as much AO1 forces you to evaluate more to 'fill the space', which is a good thing because AO2 is 60% of the mark

    yeah but make sure you discuss and evaluate plato's theory first before you move on to aristotle. you'll lose a lot of marks if you disregard the statement/question

    I'm sat here not wanting to revise Mind Body and Soul or Problem of Evil. As they came up in the AS paper, do you think they'd come up in the paper tomorrow?
