religious studies ocr

i know that the 2022 exam for ocr religious studies a level asked
to ' critically assess Aquinas' 5th way'
how would i structure this ? do i mention all the ways? what would all 4 paragraphs be on? and most importantly, what would my thesis be? as were not arguing anything so i would'nt know what my argument for ' therefore it is in my view that....' will be at the end of my intro?
I suggest you check youtube there is plenty of how to structure an answer. Furthermore, look to your syllabus and remember to put your level, I am guessing A-level and Syllabus A or B.

It is important to develop the skills of cut and paste and then putting into the Youtube search.

Aquinas' 5th way refers to the 5th way only - Aquinas' design/teleological argument.

It doesn't say "Aquinas' 5 ways" it's only refering to the fifth way.

You'd have to explain Aquinas 5th way and then evaluate it with criticisms from Hume and perhaps the issue of evolution too.

Your thesis could be that Aquinas' 5th way is convincing or not convincing. Or if you think you can prove a stronger case - succeeds or fails.
