A level r.s question

How many topics are there in ocr r.s? Doing some organising of folders and not sure how many dividers I should buy. I know there's three main big topics but do I need to break it down into smaller? And if so what are those smaller topics called? Also would the whole 2 year course fit into one lever arch folder?

It really depends how many notes you were going to do / how many things you'd be printing out. If you were quite restrained I think the whole 2 year course would fit in a lever arch. Maybe you could have one ringbinder for each of the 3 larger sections. Then upgrade to lever arches if that's not enough space. Guarantee your binders wont go to waste over the two years, Alevels require a lot of notes and folders.

The topic titles will depend on what options your school/teacher elected, see here: https://ocr.org.uk/qualifications/as-and-a-level/religious-studies-h173-h573-from-2016/

a. Philosophy
1. Philosophical Language and Thought
2. The Existence of God
3. God and the World
4. . Theological and Philosophical Developments
5. Religious Language: Negative, Analogical or Symbolic
6. Religious Language: Twentieth Century Perspectives

b. Ethics
1. Normative Ethical Theories: Religious Approaches
2. Normative Ethical Theories
3. Applied Ethics
4. Ethical Language: Meta-ethics
5. Significant Ideas

This will depend on which religion you are studying.
