Any ideas of what to work on for ethics? Like key areas that are more likely to come up than others? Would be very helpful. Thanks!

RE and works of scholars are the only topics there have been no 30 markers on…

That's useful to know, what would a 30 marker on works of scholars look like? Would it be something on the lines of assess the importantnce of religious belief or something like that?

I basically spread the question in 4 section
List 4 part of reason why people believe in god
Religious experience
Positive impact on society
God’s Creation
God’s existence
And used Freud and Dawkins alongside other scholars to say that they make a convincing case in challenging those 4 so it is a decisive argument
Morality and religion is my prediction

Btw are you meant to add strengths and weaknesses for the 12 marker?

I think this 12 marker was awful and how did u found it . I think I did it in the end that the conflict between science and religion are cleared and I didn’t go down on weakness . How did u found the rest of the paper . Tbh I hate the 30 marker and 20 marker
