GCSE RE – Eduqas Route A
Religious, Philosophical and Ethical Studies in the Modern World including life and death, good and evil, relationships and human rights. The study of Christianity and Buddhism, including beliefs and teachings that influence life choices.
GCSE Religious Studies offers more than just learning about different cultures, beliefs and faiths. The WJEC/Eduqas Religious Studies course gives pupils the opportunity to analyse and try to understand more clearly the causes behind many major concerns and issues in our world today – for example, the causes of criminality and how society should deal with those who commit crimes; reasons why abortion and same-sex marriage are still contentious; why prejudice exists; what is being done about hunger in the developing world; why we should care about pollution; whether marriage is still worthwhile today and how religious scholars and philosophers have approached the above problems.
