No hope for A Level OCR RS

Currently in first year religious studies, and my whole class has basically given up trying for the exam. Our teacher gives us the most basic resources, moves on so fast whilst explaining little about concepts, and in general I feel I have no confidence in it compared to my other subjects. Does anyone suggest anything I can use to reteach myself some topics, or revision methods they used to improve their memory of topics please?

For me, I used the blurting method. Sometimes I might use ChatGBT to explain topics I don't understand e.g. the difference between act and rule utilitarianism. I recommend using the OCR textbook. Do wider reading to get a better understanding of the topic if you're aiming for an A or A*. I'd also recommend creating A02 grids and reading exemplar essays.
