Predictions of what topics may come up in philosophy of religion, ethics, and Buddhism papers?

Comment down any predictions you think or have been told have not come up in the past years or tested very less that may come up this year! :smile:

In the exam i know we get an answer booklet to write our essays on, but does it matter if we don’t do them in order? Sometimes i tend to answer the questions im confident with first then attempt the others. Will this be a problem?

I’ve seen a few people saying section a might be theme 3. My teacher also predicted that section b could be challenges from science? That’s all I’m going off.
How are you feeling for it?? I genuinely know nothing😭
hiya just wondering if anyone has any predictions for the islam paper

omg i would love anything from theme 3 so long as it is A2 and not pluralism! We never got taught the science element ahaha was left to our own devices for that one.

I'm feeling so stressed this is probably my worst exam, it's just if both section A's are horrific and are on something like the biblical cannon or easter then I don't know what I'd do ahaha.

The luck component of what comes up on this a level is ridiculous

It went sm better than I expected as I really was not prepared AT ALL. I done question 1 and 5, wealth was all I knew and luckily baptism was the last thing I revised like 10 minutes before the exam😭 so im happy about that. Although I didn’t manage to answer part b on question 5, which is concerning me as it’s a whole 30 marks and my other answers weren’t very solid. But im hoping to bring it back with the other papers.
hby??

Ah bl yeah u might need to work on timing because u missed 30% of the paper although u can recover in the other two. Overall though I was pretty happy now time to revise Phil
I did Islam. The questions were not bad but like my ink ran out during the exam. It took my exam time away but I was lucky since I asked the invigilators for a pen since mine ran out and the fact that I had a differen colourd ink pen throughout the entirety of the exam really annoyed me and it made me stress so much so it literally affected how I wrote. I answered all the questions but I just feel like I was going off a tangent and was waffling too much. For some weird reason, I actually predicted the topics that would come up but I got unlucky with my pen so hopefully I can somehow make it up in Philo and Ethics.
