The content is a lot to learn and it may take a while to get your head around quotes, I got my results back and achieved a 9,honestly do as much exam technique as possible and you will be fine. The questions are mainly essay writing especially the 15 markers,you have to discuss different points of view from different denominations,communities, individuals and societies. If u have any other questions let me know

There's 2 papers:
no.1 with your 2 chosen religions and the 2nd paper contains your 4 chosen themes

There's:
1 marker, 2 marker, 4 marker, 5 marker and 12 marker

What religions and themes are you doing? Feel free to ask me any questions, I did it this year and achieved a 9

I'm choosing my GCSE options this year and I was thinking of choosing R.S. I've always been interested in the philosophical attributes of this subject.
How much revision did you put into it and how did you revise?
What textbooks/revision guides did you use?
Are there any websites/other techniques I could use to revise?
Thanks so much

RE was so fun and interesting, and definitely was my favourite subject
Tbh if you’re good at debating, writing essays and understanding beliefs it’s quite easy
Honestly I revise a lot during the first year of the course, but by the second I was naturally good at answering the questions
When it comes to exam seasons, I would revise lightly for like 3 hours a day
A good tip is to use Quizlet, I used Quizlet to memorise quotations/teachings and their analyses as well.
I also used Seneca-so helpful honestly!
And I used a book which contained all the themes and religions, it had a white cover but I can’t remember so I’ll have to find the name.
Feel free to pm for more advice as I quickly typed this lol
