Omg yes i prayed that trinity and eschatology didn't come up and it came true!! Agnus Dei is the lamb of god one right? All the people who walked out of that exam said it was easy so it think the grade boundaries will be high.

Agree:
Local charities like SVP help local community through food banks and visiting elderly- Charity with idea of mission follows the idea that "God is love" John
Supporting local areas means you know where the money is going (not corrupt), you can see the effects directly.

Disagree:
Youcat says we should help the most needy- other areas in the world have a much higher poverty rate than the Uk.
Jesus taught us to love our neighbour- this does not only mean the people close to us but all the people in the world.
Cafod is a global charity which helps the environment everywhere- this helps the whole world as we can all be affected by the environment and will save future generations- Pope Francis says in Laudauto si "the world is turning into an immense pile of filth".
This was my best 12 marker and i did all my 12 markers: 1 agree, 1 disagree, 2 agree, 2 disagree and conclusion.
I kind of messed up the paper for time management and i wrote only 3 paragraphs for the last question. Whats the maximum mark i can get?

if u managed to get everything else done then you're probably gonna lose only 6 marks for the last q so maybe between 85-90 u may get so thats around a grade 8 and 9 so thats still rlly good

tbh i think i misinterpreted the first question as well. I wrote about how the genesis stories could be myths but i focused a bit too much on science and why it proves the genesis stories are incorrect. I didnt mention like human error, jesus being the word of God etc so i mightve lost a lot of marks there

maybe then in between grade 6-8 depending how many marks you lost but its still a decent grade
