This course is assessed by two written 1 hour 30 minute exams taken in year 11 during May/June. Both of the question papers are divided into four sections, with students having a choice between two groups of questions in each section.
Naturally, a Level 3 in Religious Studies follows on from this. Therefore, this qualification can be regarded as preparation for Level 2 or Level 3 work in any of the Humanities, as well as Sociology, Philosophy, Politics or Psychology. The course develops a student’s ability to face moral dilemmas that are regularly highlighted in the media, in preparation for their oncoming adult life. As a Christian College, we also believe that students gain personal spiritual development which they can reflect on throughout their life.
