Timings - LTA 12 mark and 6 mark questions This is crucial!! Exam technique - LTA How to answer a 6 mark question Key: Green = Key word, Red = refers back to the question. Step 1: Define the key word in the question. (E.g. Explain the Christian view to Abortion – 6 marks) Abortion is the termination of the foetus. Christians have different views on abortion depending on when they believe life begins. Step 2: Include a minimum of 2 - 4 explained points (P-E-E-L) making sure you refer back to the question. (E.g. Christians have different attitudes to abortion because… 1. Christians have different views to abortion because of their belief about when life begins. 2. Roman Catholics believe that ‘life begins at conception’ therefore they believe that abortion is wrong in all circumstances and goes against the commandment ‘do not kill’. 3. However, Anglican and Methodists share the belief that abortion is a ‘necessary evil’. This means that it is not a good action but sometimes in certain situations such as rape it may be the best cause of action. This is because they belief that life only begins when the foetus has a chance of surviving independently of the mother. 4. Christians believe only god has the right to end of life because they follow the teaching ‘God giveth a life and God taketh life away’. Therefore most Christians would argue that abortion should not happen. Keep back referring to the question!

Other Christians think that fertility treatment in wrong as not all the embryos are used and some are destroyed.
