I do numerous revision

I do numerous revision posters on each subject, if you colour code it ie red for biblical passages and blue for religious views and green for athiest views it really helps! 

When you are writing, remember to think of your opinion too as that is also important when coming to write essay questions in the exam.

Hope this helps, it works for me!

Depends what exam board you

Depends what exam board you're on. What you must remember for your arguments, that many students fail at is, have a MAIN point. What do you think? The philosphers should back up your argument but not drive the argument alone. 

I.e. 

'Religous language is meaningless'

 It would be rash to deem religious language as meaningless on the basis that it is non-cognitive. Wittgenstien's language games suggests...

If it is a dialogues question (25 marks AQA) then you'd need to go into depth but if it is purely an AO2 (15 marks) then real depth in examples isn't necessary, critical analysis is. 

 

I hope this helped.
