    Hi,
    I might possibly be the last one to find this out, but on the off chance I'm not, I thought I'd share.
    On eaqa, in the teacher resource section, there is exemplar answers of last year's exams. Some of the questions contains several answers showing the different levels.
    This is a great resource and has helped to clarify my marking as well as I can use some of this with students.
    Not sure how long it's been there for, but is particularly useful as doing mocks and revision now.
    Hope this helps somebody!

    I must be being thick! I can find exemplar answers for AQA A Unit 2 but can't find anything for spec B. Anyone had and solved the problem?

    Glad it wasn't just me that missed it.
    When on eaqa, click on Secure Key Materials, GCSE, RS B, Teacher Support Materials, all exemplar answers for the 6 units are there. Hope that helps.

    Thanks again

    got them believe 81 and thanks for your response above on my other thread. Can I just ask one question about the exemplars - as I said above first year with AQA. I notice that all the 'good' exemplar answers seem to be giving the view of more than one religion. Am I right in thinking that this is not a requirement and that students can get the highest levels just by focusing in one of the religions? Thanks.
     
  10. You can certainly do one religion but you need to show the differences in views that exist and from their training course I understand that you can't achieve level 6 without assessing views.

    Thanks deva. That's what I thought - just checking!

    Hi, your question has already been answered. You can study one religion but the examiner said answers would need to be very detailed to achieve higher level when explaining religious teachings and answers. As deva said having understanding of two religions helps students to explain different views to achieve higher levels.
