5 The Mark Scheme These questions are based on the Keywords. Ensure you know the meaning of all key words from this unit. You have been given a keyword sheet – practise writing out each meaning /learn them off by heart and recite them to somebody as art of your revision.The Mark Scheme‘a’ questionsThese questions are based on the Keywords.Usually they take one of two formsEither asking for a definition of the wordOR asking for an example of the word2 marks are available.1 mark = a partially correct answer2 marks = for a fully correct answer
6 These questions ask you for 2 reasons – make sure each is developed to get FULL marks. Although you cannot be judged for being ‘wrong’ you will not get full marks if you do not justify your reasons. Sometimes it might be easier for you to take a religious view point, even if you are not religious!The Mark Scheme‘b’ questions1 mark = a personal response with a brief reason2 marks =EITHER a personal response with two brief reasonsOR a personal response with one developed reason3 marks = a personal response with two reasons one of which is developed4 marks = a personal response with two developed reasons
7 The Mark Scheme Marks will be awarded singly i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 In order to reach Level 4 (7 or 8 marks depending on the QWC) you need to either have: 4 brief reasons; 2 expanded reasons; or 3 reasons with 1 explained.The Mark Scheme‘c’ questionsMarks will be awarded singly i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8In this sub-question marks will be awarded for Quality of Written Communication (QWC)This means you must try to answer the c) questions in clear English; spelling words correctly, using sentences and paragraphs and making use of specialist vocabularyIn ‘c’ questions the level will be awarded according to the Religious Studies content, the mark within the level will then be decided by the QWCThe levels are:Level 1 – Little understanding of the issue (1/2 marks)Level 2 - Basic understanding of the issue (3/4 marks)Level 3 – A more developed understanding of the issue (5/6)Level 4 – A clear understanding of the issue (7/8)
8 It is worth giving 2 reasons to support your view – aim to explain these in as much detail as you can. In this section you MUST refer to Christianity somewhere in your answer – either as part of your opinion, or as someone who would disagree with you. If you do not mention Christianity in your answer you are restricted to a maximum of 3/6.The Mark Scheme‘d’ questionsEach sub-question will be marked completely separately.Each part (i and ii) will have 3 marks and will be marked:1 mark = a simple reason2 marks = a developed reasonOR two simple reasons3 marks = a fully developed reasonOR two developed reasonsOR three simple reasons

These are found on page 9 of the text book.The ‘b’ questionYou need to know your own responses to the issues that might arise in a ‘c’ question. You need 2 or 3 reasons for each issue.The ‘c’ questionMake sure you understand:The different authorities that Christians use when making moral decisions;The reason why human rights are important & why people should take part in democratic & electoral processes;What is meant by genetic engineering & cloning & the different attitudes Christians have to this & their reasons.The ‘d’ questionYou must do the same for someone who would argue against you.You should have 2 different view points that you can call on for this question.You must know how a Christian would respond.
