Read some of our most frequently asked questions and answers

How should I approach essay questions that require me to compare and contrast different religious beliefs and practices?

Create a Venn diagram or a table to visually organise similarities and differences between religions. Provide specific examples and explain the significance of these comparisons in your essay.

What's the best way to remember key terminology and definitions in Religious Studies?

Make use of flashcards with terms on one side and definitions on the other. Quiz yourself regularly, and when reviewing, try to provide real-world examples or scenarios where each term applies.

How can I manage my time effectively during the Religious Studies exam, especially for longer essay questions?

Allocate a specific amount of time to each question based on the number of marks it carries. Plan your answers by creating an outline or mind map. Stick to your allocated time to ensure you have enough time for all questions. Remember to be concise with your answers; you will not gain more marks just because your answer is long. Think about what the question is asking and return to the question at the end of your answer.
