OCR AS Ethics (May 2013) - last minute help: Print out, laminate and cut up the four ethical theories - Utilitarianism, Kant, Natural Law, Situation Ethics. Match each part of the theory with a case study - Abortion, Euthanasia, Right to a Child, Genetic Engineering, War and Peace. Along with strengths and weaknesses of Utilitarianism, Kant's Ethical Theory, Situation Ethics, Natural Law, this is all you will need to revise from! Try to add examples to illustrate the strengths and weaknesses (fill this in yourself).There is also a complete list of OCR AS Ethics past questions (to January 2013), which includes my predicitons for May 2013 (for what it's worth).
A2 Ethics: All previous A2 Ethics questions and examiners' reports to Jan 2012. There is also a table showing all A2 ethics questions to June 2012. In A2, the A02 is 40% of the marks (30% at AS). Strong evaluative comments are essential, using "evidence and reasoned argument." Have a look at strengths and weaknesses of Utilitarianism, Kant's Ethical Theory, Situation Ethics, Natural Law and Virtue Ethics. There are pages on Business Ethics for OCR Philosophy and Ethics A level, and last minute help including All A2 theories and the environment and, to fill in yourselves, All A2 theories and Sexual Ethics (also try 'Kant and Sexual Ethics' practice paper) and All A2 theories and Business Ethics - (now also available filled in).
