A grade 9 is a lot more accessible than you think! I got 219 marks in my GCSE WJEC EDUQAS RE and was 21 marks into a grade 9! I was very pleased with this, obviously. As I did only around 2-3 hours before every exam of revision.

If you have any questions feel free to ask as I’d love to help any new year 11s get a Grade 9 in their GCSE!

Any info - I did WJEC EDUQAS Route A (so Islam and Christianity.)

Thank you!

I used Quizlet for quotes and I’d start by having one side with ‘love..’ and the other side ‘love thy neighbour’ so like finishing the quote, and I did one folder of these for each subtopic e.g Life and Death, Good and Evil. I would also do ‘blurting’, whereby I would put a subtopic eg Good and Evil, and I would just make a huge mind map of everything I knew on each sub-sub-topic of that theme. I would use purple highlighter for Islam and Pink for Christianity. I also made basic notes and did lots of exam questions.

I got an 8 with AQA but I revised just after the Easter holidays finished so don't be like me. Just do loads of practise questions and go over the content. I did mind maps of each topic and split the mind map into two with each religion I was studying on each side then I did a lot of practise questions under timed conditions.

If you find it hard to focus in silence just put some music on in the background, maybe classical music, classic fm have a great revision playlist I used while revising

I got an 8, I would do lots of past papers. To be honest we were so well prepared that everyone got either an 8 or 9 in my class. I barely used any quotes in my papers

You could listen to study playlists on Spotify!
If you search in ‘Lofi study’ there are really good songs that are relaxing and upbeat and just really good for studying.
I sometimes played TV programmes of shows I’ve watched so many times- because I’ve seen it hundreds of times I don’t get tempted into staring at the screen. Good luck <3

look at the mark scheme that the examiner uses then you'll see what makes a grade 9 - adding quotes, keywords etc etc Go to the website of the examining board for you RE to find out about the mark scheme the examiner has to follow to give you the higher grades.
