A Level Religious Studies Essays About Life

 
  1. Is anyone doing this paper? I'm struggling on how to write a good essay on life after death, any help will be appreciated

  2. Sorry, it may not be appropriate- but here I go- I am doing Edexcel AS P&E, would you mind giving me any tips seeing as you have moved onto A2? I cannot find a lot of people on this thread that are on the Edexcel board.

    Thanks in advance.

  3. Sure no problem, however I'm doing Philosophy and Islam. What philosophy questions are you doing? I basically write the essays and memorise them, philosophy questions always stay the same but are worded slightly differently so make sure you mould your essay to the question being asked especially for the A02 part. Hope that helps, if you have any more questions to ask I'll be happy to help!
