making up quotes for rs gcse ?? (buddhism)Watch
Heya! So my teacher chose Buddhism as one of our key religions for RS GCSE (Eduqas) and I’m so stuck on quotes! I have absolutely no idea where to find them and she tells us we need to include about a denomination in every paragraph but i simply don’t understand how when there’s only a few minor differences between the different buddhist vehicles ?? I was wondering if in an exam situation it’s likely for an examiner to have an in depth knowledge of the buddhist religion and quotes from it? Any help would be very appreciated !!!
I was simply wondering because I know that a friend of mine made up almost all the quotes she used in her jewish studies gcse (which is more likely to be checked) and still received a 9. Also, due to the variation in translations and amount of resources Buddhists use (e.g. dhammapada) I was wondering if it was unlikely that examiners would know - even in my class with a teacher who is quite good she failed to notice that a friend of mine had made up her quotes. Thank you for the link, it is quite helpful (though I don't think it is for the same spec).
Try making it up and outsmart the examiner. See how it goes. You arent the first student ever to have tried.
The differences between Buddhist traditions can be massive, by the way. There are certainly major differences between the Therevada and the Mahayana for a start, then each subsect gets wilder still. To say that the Sarvasitvada has only 'minor differences' from Madhyamaka or Yogarcara, for example, is just plain wrong.
