Ewan Brady, OCR Religious Studies Subject Advisor
So, you didn’t sit your GCSE RS exams this year – but GCSEs are not just about exams. They are two-year courses where students develop the knowledge, understanding and skills in a particular subject. Whilst the 2021 exams were cancelled the course itself will have helped you prepare for what comes next.
If you want to know more about our A Level religious studies course you can check out our specification, past papers and more on the OCR website.
2021 has been an odd year, a very difficult year for many people. It follows on from another difficult year, 2020. But, where there is despair, there is hope, hope for a better future. For many young people, part of the hope will be about moving on to sixth form and beyond to university.
You may have been given a transition pack from your teacher with various tasks to help you prepare for studying A Level religious studies. Do this work – it is important.
