AQA published Specimen Materials (SAMS) for their new Specifications, and 2018 was the first year of formal exams. This document maps out the questions from SAMS through to 2019 for the religion papers against the actual specification content.

It allows any teacher to see all the questions which have been asked so far. This document can be used to work out a mock exam which does not just replicate the SAMS and 2018 and 2019 as it shows the gaps in what has been asked so far. It can also be used to keep a record of actual exam questions as papers have been sat - so saving a lot of time for teachers in preparation for that.

AQA GCSE RS (9-1)  MOCK PAPER COVERING ALL RELIGION OPTIONS
CharliebgoodCharliebgood

AQA GCSE RS (9-1) MOCK PAPER COVERING ALL RELIGION OPTIONS

(0)
This mock paper was generated by an analysis of which topics had been covered in the two SAMS papers and the 2018 exam. The analysis showed the topics not yet used as a questions focus. These topics were then used to formulate questions in the language of the exam paper. Hence, by completing this mock, a student will not simply be practising those questions already asked, but rather being tested on the gaps. All seven religions are contained within the paper here, so that the relevant ones can be taken out for use as a mock paper. Beliefs and Practices are on separate pages for each religion, so that it is easy to just test Beliefs or Practices. This paper does not provide space for answers, though questions could be printed out and stuck over an existing paper if a teacher wants students to work from an ‘authentic’ paper.
