Showing 1 to 18 of 18

I have done so much revision for my 16 exams. Its not helpful to try and get A's, B's and A*, but I have been working really hard.

I was just wondering what people do for their revision in RS as my first exam I got a B. But I Would like to achieve higher. It sounds very bigheaded but its expectations. if you understand.

would appreciated any advice or tips? (; THANK YOU!

i know exactly what u mean! It's so hard to keep grades up especially when everyone expects you to do really well 

i'm guessing you do OCR

If so just revise all possible (d) and (e )questions. tha doesn't mean neglect the other questions completely though

Definitely! ha ha I keep posting all over these topics to try and get the most revision help possible! Because 16 exams, I could kill them ;D ha ha and my first one is around nearly 3 weeks away :0

I think it is OCR I am not sure, but I shall work on the D and E questions as you suggested, thank you so much for your help once again (: x

just wondering are you not doing the Human relationships/ medical ethics/ poverty and wealth topic?

And if you are which two are you picking and why

Posted: 25-04-11 12:10 by Pui Pui

I have already done this exam, as we have 4 exams. I only have 3 exams left. The first one I did was medical ethics and human relationships.  I got a B in this. I did not choose the poverty and wealth topic.

But I found the human relationships and medical ethics very easy as an exam, I find christianity easy and learning this in hinduism was hard so we changed to christianity and I got my B.

I hope this helps, choose topics which you find interesting and would more likely to remember. Also things you might know already are very helpful for RS exams!

I have to do all four this May/June coz my school won't let us take exams early.

I was the last year who could take maths early too.

Your more than welcome! Oh I see, I have done most of my exams already! How many have you got? I have 16 but seem to done more than that over year ten. I have already done two maths exams and have one left to do.

I had done an RS they made us do the (belief about diety, life after death) in hinduism, I didnt get the grade I wanted so I am retaking, our whole class is, instead with christianity, its the easiest out of all the other ones, hinduism is really hard.

i have 22 exams, but i took my maths last year so i'm taking additional maths this year. and then theres all the controlled assements and course work i've done too

I have the same problem.... i have 10 exams and there's one tommorrow for french which i haven't done ANYTHING for and i can't anyway cos i have to do another coursework which is very important.

And, then I've got to do RS too which I know I haven't done enough revision for.... I don't know how I'm going to cope. But i wish you luck and hope it all sorts out :) (fingers crossed)

I wouldnt worry if they are french listening and french reading, as you can't really revise for these, unless you practice listening to french. I have my french exams in May, two of them,

When are your Rs exams? Just know some quotes, is what I have been doing and looking at past papers as some are extremely similiar?

Good luck with your ten exams all the best :D

Posted: 25-04-11 12:38 by Rhiannon Britten

22 exams is a lot! My goodness, saying that some of my friends have more due to a lot of retakes! But I wish you all the best of luck!

wow thats really good you could do some additional maths, (:

Posted: 25-04-11 12:39 by Rhiannon Britten

Thanks. Good luck to you as well

Your welcome and thank you :)

Practice the questions and I always forget to look through my class notes and focus more on the revision guide which isn't that great because I worked really hard through the year. My Class notes give all the different opinions and my thoughts too.

Make posters and mindmaps, bitesize have a revision map tool which is really good, I have loads stuck on my wall. :)

Hi 16 exams WOW! 8O are these GCSE or A-level ones?

RE at GCSE I found reall interesting and fun, and was pleased on results day with A :) Beause of my result I decided to take it at A-level theres 4 of us :L Its sooo mcuh harder! I am doing Islam, Ethics, Utilitarianism etc its difficult so many essays to do I wish somebody told me it's an essay based subject! No coursework this year though :)

Its coming up to exams now and I like to revising by producing revision cards in 2 ways.

1.) Match up games. E.g. put an islamic word on a card then putting the definition on a different card. Really Helpful!

2.)Flash card. Definition on one side, key word on the other.

 Hope I helped :) & GOOD LUCK!!

I'm picking human relationships and medical ethics because those are the two we learned about in class!
