    Most of my GCSEs. It still went down pretty well

    Gonna wing Health and social care. You just need common sense and the grade boundaries are fairly low!

    Yeah, i did for my Cambridge national sports studies I did very little revision on the day thought I failed turned out to be an A.

    For my GCSE history exam I did revision the day before
    Got an A lol

    No. No one has winged an exam, ever. Absolutely no one.

    Oh they have.... Just because you don't do it, does not mean nobody else has attempted to.

    Got my BTEC ICT exam on the same day as my GCSE Maths one and I really can't be asked to revise for it. I need to work hard for a B in maths and the ICT exam is a resit anyways. I also haven't done the course in like a whole year so...

    Anyways, winging an exam with no revision at all - good idea?
    I basically winged ICT GCSE LOL. My teacher is an idiot so I couldn't be bothered to do any revision, and I have a feeling Maths or English was on the same day (can't remember it was like 2 weeks ago lol) so those are so much more significant to me. ICT GCSE was such a joke though, we all went into the exam crying of laughter because we literally knew nothing (but we had 60% coursework behind us - but btw I don't even know what I got in coursework so..)

    I winged all my GCSES but I don't advise it.

    I went to a bad school who didn't encourage, motivate or inspire students to do well. I say prepare and achieve the best grades possible.
