Hey I also do AQA and am also wondering abt predictions which is why I'm here.
Tbh I think it's quite hard to predict but I have noticed that some questions from previous years almost get repeated, e.g a four marker asked one year is the focus for a five marker or twelve marker in some year later.

Do you know how to access the paper from previous years like 2018 or 2019? They aren't available on the exam board's website or anywhere else and I feel like having papers from all the previous years would be most helpful for revision and predictions.

Good luck with your revision!

Hey i completely agree with you it is difficult to predict bc aqa are very unpredictable sometimes they will give you nice easy comforting questions and other times they will drop you in the deep end. But it is best to prepare for the worst. I have also noticed that aqa take off previous years exam papers as they only put up 3 years worth of content then take them down as new papers appear. Tbh i am not exactly sure what the questions for 2018 are i have sat some of the papers for mock exams last year but haven't gotten them back so cant really tell you them sorry. But i am guessing somewhere online they will have copies of them. PS: if you do find them its only worth looking at 2018 onwards bc 2017 previous are completely different exam methods like i tried using it and got nowhere because AQA changed the way they examine students starting from the 2018 paper!!
Good luck with your revision too!!
Btw which religions and themes do you study?
What do you guys reckon will most likely come up. I do Christianity and Islam. Themes ABCD

I do themes A, B, C and D
Btw as a recommendation, Ben Wardle's vids on Youtube give really nice refreshes – watching them on 2x speed the night before gets me in exam mode 👊

Now that it's Thursday, there's exactly 4 weeks till the first one and then in 5 weeks there's the second RS paper so then there's no more RS. I also remember when I just started content in Yr9 too, time's been speeding up exponentially. Let's just do past papers, learn our quotes, hope for the best and smash it, wishing you the best of luck! 😊
