AQA GCSE RE Morality revision

Hey guys! :)

I just did my morality exam and I made these notes for my revision, they helped me a lottt.

However, I did miss out the 'Drugs' topic and also the 'Rich and Poor in the UK' topic, as I didn't do those questions in the exam but anyhoo I hope these are still useful! I studied Christianity and Islam for the exam. 

I would advise you could use these as a basis for revision and find your own quotes to go with the teachings :D
