Firstly, if you choose to download my resource(s), please take the time to leave a rating (as I know most of don't really bother) - I do really value your feedback! ***** FOLLOW @AllRoundRes, to stay up-to-date with the latest resources and news! *****I created this resource for GCSE Edexcel Religious Studies (Unit 3 & 8), but it could be used for any exam board. It is a set of each exam questions (a, b, c and d), for both exams. The idea to get students to answer the questions all on one page, to act as a test, but to help students understand and know what they need to further revise. The questions are all on one slide (4 questions on each – 8 with both exam sets). It would be advised that you print this off in A3, to give students more space to write their answers. The sheet, includes a self-evaluation including WWW & EBI, to help students identify what they need to revise.
