BBC Bitesize saved my life for RS, revised yesterday from there: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/zb48q6f
Some things aren't covered thoroughly when you select Edexcel but are on the spec, if you look at AQA RS on Bitesize it's in a lot more detail and somehow covers the spec better for some aspects depending on the religions you're studying. If it's not there just search up on google and it'll come up! :smile:

If you can't find it there search your exam board and religion / topic in Quizlet, you're guaranteed to find something there!
Good luck with your exams!! :biggrin:

Alright! I personally thought it went really well! Only one question that caught me off guard - however it was only a 3 marker.

It went okay. The 12 marker on pilgrimage was quite nasty, aswell as the C question on sacrament of the sick. Everything else was okay!

hunger cloth, god as the father and Sacrament of the sick questions were wack, but overall not that bad of an exam

the extended family one just made me want to cry, i wrote a decent response but it could’ve been better and for some reason even thought it was actually very easy the last question??? idk i literally blanked out

i jist said that luke 2 details how jesus and his family went to jerusalem and went to a temple to listen to a sermon
and also christians may visit sites that marked significant events. e.g the cenacle where the eucharist was instituted and the via dolorosa which is the route jesus took to golgotha to get crucified
