You must have done nothing in the last two years so. It's so easy when you put the work in it's a walk in the park.

I don't know about anyone else but the journal work which many think helps them, might drag me down a grade (Down to A2 or B1)

Don't bother looking at the curriculum just take out your notes and use postets to break down every topic and ofcourse:

Expand, Expand, Expand,Expand,Expand,Expand!

I can't decide whether or not to study what's come up in the last few years or not. I've got a lot to do so need to prioritise. Do you think it's likely they'd repeat questions when the course is still so new?

I think that they might bring up some expected stuff as 40 markers but they could bring up unexpected stuff as the other part of the question...they're like that

Religion essay structure?

Hi,

I was just wondering what is the structure for an essay in the leaving cert religion exam. I have no idea how to structure an answer. My teacher has a different structure to other subjects like history. Totally confused!

intro..basically backround info and refre to question ask

middle, the information you know, refer back to question after each point you make

ending, round it up, refer to question..maybe give a personal view.. like i think that the sophists had a great idea or something liek that XD

QUESTION:

how long do we spend on an 80 mark, 40 mark and twenty mark question?
im so worried abut this exam... esp with the lack of info that i think most people use for this course... ugh

he said repeat the question in each paragraph too to try convince the examiner you are answering the question.
I'm lucky i had a brilliant teacher who wrote books on religion and all but he never once gave us tests not even for christmas so do you think we studied it at all?
