How did you find the paper? I thought the first 2 topics were easy, and the last two more challenging. As usual, a few people answered a topic we hadn't studied, or answered all five.

I didn't like the social injustice question, as I didn't have a lot to write.

Thought it was pretty good, most of the questions were fairly typical to what we'd done in class so it was nothing taxing.

Tried to make sure i used as many quotes as possible

Still got a couple of exams left though

does anyone else think that, despite there seeming to be less content for the philosophy bit, it was harder to write lots on the ethics paper? I thought that was allot harder than the first one. Still, not overly straining. It's the just writing for 2 hours... I got bored.

I tried to go slowly but ended up finishing with 40 minutes to go

I found the first one harder because there was so much random stuff to write. like scientific explanations for the Big Bang...it's a damn RS exam for crying out loud! :p:

i didn't like the marriage vows question, i didn't think there was really that much you could say, i just rambled quite a lot. other than that, i didn't find it too bad.

i liked talking about martin luther king in every euality and injustice question, i put in so much quotation from his dream speech, haha, it probably wasn't even relevant.

i don't understand why they gave us all an 8 page booklet, everyone needed more paper. i used three booklets... but i always write too much, i wrote 20 pages for english too :s

I finished the first booklet and stopped at the middle page of the second booklet.

I think that's fine - the definition we were given is "social injustice is when society is set up in such a way that certian groups of people have fewer rights and priveleges than others". So women in a sexist society, different races in a racist society are victims of social injustice. I personally talked about the disabled, immigrants and the poor.
