Why study ep
Why Study EP?

Q: What is the point, EP doesn’t get me anything?

A: EP is now a full GCSE. This can and will count towards one of your 5 A*-C GCSE’s that will help meet the entry requirements for Sixth Form.

Q: It all about religion and I’m not religious. How will this help me in my other subjects?

A: EP no longer focuses just on religion. Although it is still plays a part, majority of exam is based on ethical and moral issues. To achieve well, you must be able to explain and justify your view. This is a higher order skill. These skills compliment the following subjects;

  • English

  • History

  • Geography


  • AQA Religion and Animal Rights Assessment

  • What is factory farming? 1 mark

  • Give two reasons why many religious believers are against the fur and ivory trades. 2 marks

  • “Religious believers should be vegetarians”. What do you think? Explain. 3 marks

  • Explain the attitudes of religious people to experiments on animals. Refer to religious teaching in your answer.6 marks

  • “Animals are here for humans’ benefit”. Do you agree? Give reasons for your answer, showing that you have thought about more than one point of view. Refer to religious arguments in your answer. 6 marks
