And what I'm planning to do for them is try and learn all the definitions (you can get a vocab list for each theme and religion) as well as make notes (mindmaps are amazing) by going through my book and revision guide. I also have a specific " main colour" scheme for each theme (so Crime and punishment is a sort of toned down green whereas A is pink) as I find colours help me revise.
For the questions (sorry some of them are short, I don't have much time lol):
Q2: you can get away with writing a sentence or even two words. The command word is "give" so no explanation required.
Q3: Some Christians agree with the death penalty where the murderer is a serial killer. The Catechism of the Catholic Church accepts it if it is the only way to defend society from such a person. Many other Christians, though, believe that society should never give up hope of
reforming even the worst offender. He or she can then contribute valuable to society.
(got this off the aqa examplar). This got 4 marks. The question is always going to ask you to either compare or show similarities to two different religions (Catholicism and Christianity can count as different in this case).
Q4: 5 marks awarded for two developed points plus accurate reference to scripture (this is one mark!). The time allocated to these questions is a maximum of five minutes.
Q5: It is important that you do all the bullet points! Top tip: even if you haven't finished but still have about 2 minutes left, scribble your opinion down and say why. E.G: "In conclusion, while war can help countries gain new lands, I believe war is never right, as not only does it cost a lot of money to finance (money which could be used elsewhere) it takes unnecessary lives." That took me about a minute to do and the examiners given me a mark for justified (it has two arguments) conclusion even if I've waffled on mostly about the benefits of war and one disadvantage.
Twelve Mark Questions Mark Scheme Criteria
Level 4:
A well-argued response, reasoned consideration of different points of view. Logical chains of reasoning leading to judgement(s) supported
by knowledge and understanding of relevant evidence and information.
Level 3
References to religion applied to the issue. Reasoned consideration of different points of view. Logical chains of reasoning that draw on knowledge and
understanding of relevant evidence and information. Clear reference to religion.
Level 2:
Reasoned consideration of a point of view. A logical chain of reasoning drawing on knowledge and understanding of relevant evidence and information.
OR
Recognition of different points of view, each supported by relevant reasons / evidence.
Maximum of Level 2 if there is no reference to religion or the argument is one-sided.
Level 1: (0 m)
Point of view with reason(s) stated in support.
Level 0:
Nothing worthy of credit.

Hope this helped Also, if you've done the 2018 mock could you tell me what the questions are? I'm doing everything the same as you except D (I do C). I need Xtian Practices and the Theme A and C q's esp

Hey guys

I'm going to turn this into the official thread for the GCSE AQA RS Thematic studies paper. I just wanted to know if this was Religious Studies A, B, or the Religious Studies short course that you are studying?

Let me know!
