I did the same as you. My only advice is learn the structure. That’s the only thing I remembered and it really helped. (My GCSEs got cancelled but I got full marks on both my religious studies papers in my last three mocks, so trust me when I say structure is the most vital thing).

Hi there, it’s so important to practice writing 5 markers and 4 markers and obviously the 12 marker. Also practice writing within the time limit because the timings quite tight and it’s important that you get used to it.

I’m a grade 9 level student for R.S, and for my mocks I have gotten 100% in most themes and 100% in Christianity. All I did was learn everything from my notes and that got me 100%!
If you’re interested pm me because I am selling these notes (typed), several people have already bought them.

If not I’m sure you’ll be fine, ask your teacher to mark your 12 markers and give you feedback x
Which exam board are your notes for? Have you got any sample essays to demonstrate structure?

Hi I did AQA Themes A,B,C,E and AQA Christianity (I did Buddhism unfortunately not Islam)
Yes, several people have requested sample essays so I’m in the middle of typing them up (so it’ll take some time)
Sample essays come along free if you buy notes x
Ah OK, I don't really need any notes. I just want to be able to improve my essay style. PM me when you have completed your Christianity sample essays, as long as they aren't ridiculous priced 😜 I would be interested.
