Having a bit of a panic because I've looked at the specification and one of the discussion points is:

which of the logical or evidential aspects of the problem of evil pose the greater challenge to belief

I thought they were pretty much the same thing and google is 0 help

If anyone could help me out that would be very much appreciated

logical: the literal, logical difficulties with the problem of evil. so, for example J.L Mackie's inconsistent triad, the Epicurean paradox. basically how it can be possible that God has certain attributes (omnipotence, omnibenevolence, omniscience) and yet evil exists. It does not make logical sense.

evidential: the evidence of evil in our world. J.S Mill is a good example because he talks about how things humans are "hanged and imprisoned for doing to one another are part of nature's everyday performances." Another good one is Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel The Brothers Karamazov, where Ivan says all the evidence of evil in the world he can see (so like children suffering) leads him to question whether God is worth worshipping.
If you have the textbook, there are sections in the problem of evil chapter on the logical and evidential problem of evil
