Religious Studies

Here you will find the Unit Award Scheme (UAS) units that we have mapped to our GCSE Religious Studies specifications.

GCSE Religious Studies

The GCSE Religious Studies content has been split into bite-sized units making it more accessible to learners.

Students will receive a certificate each time they complete a unit. By recognising their achievements in this way, the scheme allows students to engage with learning and take clear steps towards success.
