Panic “My Exam is Tomorrow!” Must Read for New Spec Christian Thought

I am in the dark with everyone else when it comes to giving last minute tips for the Christianhqdefault Thought topics. Unlike Philosophy and Ethics, which have altered slightly, they are still very similar to the legacy A2 questions, therefore have a level of predictability as far as technique and last minute tips (see: Must Read for New Spec Philosophy and Must Read for New Spec Ethics to help).

So my last minute words of advice for Christian Thought were simply three things:

  1. Use the words in the question throughout your answer
  2. Add critical words with ‘because’ throughout to emphasize evaluation
  3. Add as many glossary/ key words as possible and link back to the question.

Good Luck

This might help last minute revision.
