    This one says the number is declining.

    This one says it has hit the highest number of entries in 14 years.

    Why do they lie?

    Who even voluntarily takes RS?

    Who even voluntarily takes RS?
    Mainly because GCSE RS is the easiest possible GCSE you can do and requires no form of memorisation of abstract thought...just common sense :sigh:

    It had turned out to be my favourite GCSE though so I got that from it...:mmm:

    It's literally the easiest A out there.

    It's a pity more emphasis is not placed on analytical thinking and reasoning, rather than superstitious beliefs.

    They do not lie, though one gives a misleading impression by quoting the small rise in the full course only and ignoring the big dip in short course numbers.

    Its the easiest A* as long as you revise properly: practise tricky questions and memorise ALL the key words if youre doing the edexcel board
