Religion and Society Revision Importance of the Study Design Key knowledge and skill ‘dot points’ are what we have in common It will be the ‘language’ of the exam All revision should be done with reference to these
Knowledge and Understanding “The paint and the painting” Begin with knowledge. “What have I learnt this year?” It is your “paint”. Use this knowledge to paint “word pictures”. Make sense of the knowledge you have to show understanding.
4 Principles of Revision: OrganiseSummariseMemoriseApply
ORGANISE All course material should be separated into 5 separate outcomes: Meaning in Religious Traditions Continuity and Maintenance of Beliefs Beliefs and Life Experience Historical Challenges Contemporary Challenges
SUMMARISE Read through all material with a pen in hand Write down the key points and information that is contained in the material. At the end of this process you should have a collection of information and quotes under each of the 5 Outcome headings. Select the important information and arrange it in a logical order according to outcome dot points.
MEMORISE You need to know important facts and quotes in the Religion and Society exam. This is unavoidable It requires consistent hard work re-reading and re-writing your information.
APPLY Continuously challenge yourself by answering practice questions from past exam papers. Discipline yourself to keep to the time limits set for each type of question: 10 minute responses for Part A questions 20 minutes for Part B questions 45 minutes for Part C questions Submit these attempts for correction.
Hints Work in groups Read other students’ work, especially model answers Use ‘Checkpoints’ as a guide Set aside a little time each day to work on Religion and Society, even when other subjects may be a more immediate priority. This will aid the memory work.
Always work with a pen in hand and write points down. Be prepared to re-write material if you discover something new Use your teacher as a resource. We want you to do as well as possible and will give you every assistance
Make connections between the different outcomes. They are all related through the beliefs of the religious tradition and it is important to understand the big picture as well as the separate outcomes Don’t panic! No matter what the question is, it must be asking you about something you have learnt this year. It is an invitation to show the examiner what you know.
