Religious Studies B: Full and Short Courses (4055)
GCSE Religious Studies B offers students the opportunity for the thematic study of Religion and religious responses to fundamental questions of life. This specification is suitable for candidates of any religious persuasion or none.
This specification encourages students to:
- develop their interest and enthusiasm for the study of Religion and the relationship between Religion and the wider world
- develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of Religion by exploring the impact of beliefs, teachings, practices, ways of life and forms of expressing meaning
- express their personal responses and informed insights on fundamental questions about identity, belonging, meaning, purpose, truth, values and commitments.
There is no necessity for prior learning or level of attainment to undertake study of this specification. However consideration has been given to courses followed at Key Stage 3 within faith schools.
Study of Religious Studies B lays a good foundation for further study of Religious Studies at A-level and complements other related A-level subjects including Philosophy, Law, History, History of Art, Government and Politics, Sociology and English Literature.
