This is the thread where you can discuss the grade boundaries for an A*, and see if it's very high e.g. 98% or very low 60%. Post your exam board and subject as well.

Edexcel R.S. is more challenging as some of the questions expect you to regurgitate information from throughout the syllabus into the context of a an agree/disagree with the statement question. It is a 2 hour exam for each paper and one has to be witty and organised to use their time properly/come-up with specific answers to the question.

OCR have those actually.
3 questions, each with 3 parts. One purely remembering facts, second where you give the significance and such, third agree/disagree question.
I can't remember the timings, but the exams were pretty long.
I don't think it requires that much wit and/or organisation.

The Christianity paper, learning 30+ stories was the major bad thing.
But, that's it.

I was neither of these in my RS exam (gcse edexcel) and i came out with 100%

So whoever said that RS gcse is simply a case of remembering facts was completely right

It's not THAT easy. You still have to sit-down and learn...

I did.
And I got the same, but with OCR.
It's simply just learning a load of facts and implementing them everywhere and anywhere.
Plus, waffle.
