When I did mine it was the last year of the A*-U grades system so it might be different now, but we did Catholic Ethics and Mark's Gospel. Basically you got two papers, both were mostly the same, with some shorter written questions, and then a section at the back where you could choose from two questions. These two questions had four parts, each being a short essay worth 6 marks. I know for a fact that the 6 mark thing is now incorrect bc the maximum marks for a question now is 12.

Even with AQA A there are many options as to which 2 religions you study and even then there are 2 routes. He needs to ask his teacher which option he is doing.
