Helppp! Is it necessary to include quotes in every single paragraph you do? Or can you just paraphrase like, the bible teaches that....

You can paraphrase but you need to include key beliefs that are RELEVANT. I read the examiners report for AQA from last year and they were unhappy with the number of people using irrelevant quotes. So you're okay if you only know key beliefs. What you don't want to do is use 'love they neighbour' for everything! You'd be better off learning the sheep and goat parable and lord's prayer. Hope this helps Good luck tomorrow!

Hi! I think referring to “sources of wisdom” rather than learning quotes is much better for RS. Of course, paraphrase when you can, but when referring to sources such as Gaudium Et Spes, The Enchiridion, etc. and linking that to teaching, it will help more and show the examiner your level of understanding.

Happy revising, and good luck for tomorrow if you have it! (Cause I do. D: Yikes)

I'd advise not to focus on what is predicted, as I sat AQA RS last year, and the questions were ones that would not have been predicted (for Christianity and Islam).
My RS teacher said for Islam it was most likely to by "X" is the most important pillar (12)
On of the 12s was "Jumu'ah (Friday prayer) is the most important prayer for a muslim" (12) or words to that effect.
So remember, just because something might not come up, doesn't mean it can't

My other piece of advise is if you find the question hard, its likely that most others will to. For the one above, after our exam everyone was worried about not doing so well because of the question, but everyone who does the same options will be faced with the same questions, so don't panic if its not one you have specifically prepared for

Though, if the people who wrote the exams are anything like last years there'll be a question that has food in it.
This was the case for all my AQA exams (RS, Bio, Chem, Physics, English Lang) as well as CIE (ICT, Geo, Eng Lit) and Edexcel (Maths)

All good. I've got fasting for sawm and two contrasting beliefs about the bread and wine... I can now guarantee that is not coming up.
