Religion and ethics GCSE scriptures? Watch
Also, quotes don't have to be memorised for English language. They have to be memorised for English literature.
Thta's because Spec B is specifically just about Roman Catholic Christianity. In Spec A you cover 2 from a choice of religions, including both Christianity and Roman Catholic Christianity. That gives a far greater choice of possible bibles. (Now I've discovered this I am slightly shocked that exam boards pander to Roman Catholics being allowed to be so insular when everyone esle has to do some level of comparative religion.)
Ah right, I understand. My school did Spec B, so that's why I referred to it. Also, half of the second paper (if I remember correctly) in Spec B focuses on either Judaism or Islam, so I wouldn't deem it to be too narrow.

That seems more acceptable - my quick flick through the specification appeared to show it was all Roman Catholic Catholicism - which seemed weird when all the other main religions got equally weighting in Spec A. I'e always thought school RE ought to widen your knowledge of other faiths rather than reinforce what you're taught at home/wherever your parents send you for relgious instruction. (Not that my parents' and school's common approach had the slightest effect on making me beleive any of it.)
Also, I agree with you on your last sentence.
Do you need to memorise religious scriptures for GCSE? My teacher said that you just need to state something is in the bible or other religious scriptures (e.g the bible says do not kill rather than “thou shall not kill”) not quote it exactly but I’m wondering if this is accurate to what AQA examiners want? Not having to memorise scriptures on top of English language quotes would be ideal though 😬 any answers are appreciated.
Have you asked your teacher if you need to memorize quotes? We didn't when I did my RE GCSE - but then my class just did the short course, and that was 13 years ago.
