Judgements are supported by an attempt to appraise evidence, much of which may be superficial, leading to a conclusion that is not fully justified. 7 9 marks for: deconstructing religious information/issues, leading to coherent and logical chains of reasoning that consider different viewpoints. These are underpinned by an accurate understanding of religion and belief. Connections are made among many, but not all, of the elements in the question. constructing coherent and reasoned judgements of many, but not all, of the elements in the question.

8 PRACTICE EXAM PAPERS: SPECIFICATION A Option 3A Catholic Christianity Page 20 Question 1 (a) The creation of the universe; the death and resurrection of Christ; historical and biblical miracles; modern day miracles. (b) They can redouble their efforts in prayer maybe including others or their priest; ask why the healing has not taken place; trust that God has a plan for the healing. (c) Science is now able to explain many things not known when the Bible was written; advances in technology have allowed scientists much greater insights; they can now see further into space and more closely at cellular level; this has, for some, raised questions about the accuracy of the Genesis creation story. (d) Many near-death experiences share similarities, supporting their authenticity; a tunnel, a bright light, seeing their bodies below them, watching key events from their lives; sometimes visiting heaven and hell whilst hearing the voice of God without seeing Him; these experiences can never be verified; they are always going to be personal only; in terms of evidence, they are often only seen as proof by those who already believe in God; Catholics could argue that the supernatural shows that there is something beyond this life; as medical thinking cannot explain near-death experiences, it strengthens the argument that God is responsible for them. Page 21 Question 2 (a) To express love; to declare a commitment; to have sex; to have children. (b) Marriage vows are made in church before God; the couple vow to be together for life; the marriage contract is a legally binding document; Matthew 19:7 9 (c) Many could argue that equality does not mean parity or equity; equity would allow both men and women to hold the same roles; Catholic tradition follows Peter as the first leader of the Church and males have been the leaders since then; women have been allowed into many roles in the Church but leadership has not been one of them; this could be seen as elevating men above women. (d) In the UK, a contract is required by law; a registrar or registered priest has to be present to countersign; the marriage is not recognised by law without the contract; a Catholic could argue that promises to God are more important; the whole service is performed in front of and in the presence of God; a legal contract can be broken but being in God s presence cannot be avoided; the marriage should be a lifelong commitment and a piece of paper cannot change this; with the couple being Catholics, they should both value the vows that they are making; by law, they could remarry following a divorce but the Catholic Church would not allow them to remarry; if a non-believer, then the statement becomes meaningless; to benefit legally from a marriage, formal documents must be signed. Option 3B Christianity Page 22 Question 1 (a) The creation of the universe; the death and resurrection of Christ; historical and biblical miracles; modern day miracles. (b) They can redouble their efforts in prayer maybe including others or their priest; they can ask why the healing has not taken place; trust that God has a plan for the healing. (c) Science is now able to explain many things not known when the Bible was written; advances in technology have allowed scientists much greater insights; they can now see further into space and more closely at cellular level; this has, for some, raised questions about the accuracy of the Genesis creation story. (d) Many near-death experiences share similarities, supporting their authenticity; a tunnel, a bright light, seeing their bodies below them, watching key events from their lives; sometimes visiting heaven and hell whilst hearing the voice of God without seeing Him; these experiences can never be verified; they are always going to be personal only; in terms of evidence, they are often only seen as proof by those who already believe in God; Christians could argue that the supernatural shows that there is something beyond this life; as medical thinking cannot explain near-death experiences, it strengthens the argument that God is responsible for them. Page 23 Question 2 (a) To express love; to declare a commitment; to have sex; to have children. (b) In a case of abuse; the couple could fall out of love with each other; they may find that they cannot have children; adultery (Matthew 19: 7 9). (c) Many could argue that equality does not mean parity or equity; equity would allow both men and women to hold the same roles; Catholic tradition follows Peter as the first leader of the Church and males have been the leaders since then; there is much concern with regard to attitudes towards sexuality in Christianity. (d) In the UK, a contract is required by law; a registrar or registered priest has to be present to countersign; the marriage is not recognised by law without the contract; a Christian could argue that promises to God are more important; the whole service is performed in front of and in the presence of God; a legal contract can be broken but being in God s presence cannot be avoided; the marriage should be a lifelong commitment and a piece of paper cannot change this; with the couple being Christians, they should both value the vows that they are making; by law, they could remarry following a divorce but the Catholic Church would not allow them to remarry; if a non-believer, then the statement becomes meaningless; to benefit legally from a marriage, formal documents must be signed. Option 3C Islam Page 24 Question 1 (a) The creation of the universe; the revelation of the Qur an to Muhammad; historical and Qur anic miracles; modern day miracles. (b) They can redouble their efforts in prayer maybe including others or their imam; they can ask why the healing has not taken place; they can trust that Allah has a plan for the healing. (c) Science is now able to explain many things not known when the Qur an was written; advances in technology have allowed scientists much greater insights; they can now see further into space and more closely at cellular level; this has, for some, raised questions about the accuracy of the Islamic creation story. Answers

9 Answers (d) Many near death experiences share similarities, supporting their authenticity; a tunnel, a bright light, seeing their bodies below them, watching key events from their lives; sometimes visiting heaven and hell whilst hearing the voice of Allah without seeing Him; these experiences can never be verified; they are always going to be personal only; in terms of evidence, they are often only seen as proof by those who already believe in Allah; Muslims could argue that the supernatural shows that there is something beyond this life; as medical thinking cannot explain near-death experiences, it strengthens the argument that Allah is responsible for them. Page 25 Question 2 (a) To express love; to declare a commitment; to have sex; to have children. (b) Marriage vows are made before Allah; the couple vow to be together for life; the marriage contract is a legally binding document; divorce is makruh ( among lawful things, divorce is most hated by Allah ). (c) Many could argue that equality does not mean parity or equity; equity would allow both men and women to hold the same roles; Muhammad was the first leader of Islam and men have been the leaders since then in line with this tradition; women have been allowed into many roles in Islam but leadership has not been one of them; this could be seen as elevating men above women. (d) A contract is required by law; a registrar or registered imam has to be present to countersign; the marriage is not recognised by law without the contract; a Muslim could argue that promises to Allah are more important; the whole service is performed in front of and in the presence of Allah; a legal contract can be broken but being in Allah s presence cannot be avoided; the marriage should be a lifelong commitment and a piece of paper cannot change this; with the couple being Muslims, they should both value the vows that they are making; some mosques may be unwilling to remarry either of a divorced couple.
