    So today I sat my Religious Studies exam. Don't know how yours works but for me you get a load of questions each about different religions eg. Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism etc. and we had to just answer the 2 questions about Christianity. Well I answered all 5 parts on the first question and was just finishing the paper when I noticed the front of the paper said you had to answer all the parts of the questions you chose. So does that mean if you miss out 1 question you don't get any marks??? Cause if so... what are they playing at? What's the point? How does that even work? And do they realise how many futures they are throwing down the toilet for that stupid rule? And yeah I got stuck on two questions so I could be one of the victims, and I really need that half GCSE to combine with the other half for the PSHE exam I already know I've passed. But even so! One of the questions didn't even make sense... I wont go onto that just yet but I also ran out of time and didn't finish another question... one other thing I did manage to write like two words for each of those two questions, so will I still get 0 marks? Not like I didn't attempt it, not like I left it blank... this is going to bug me until results day. Someone plz just tell me if my nightmare is accurate and if so, whose bright idea it was to come up with that rule and how the hell it even works. Cheers and good luck with your exams (ps im new so hey

    I'm pretty sure you'll get marks for all the other questions, they'll just assume you ran out of time, it's just in an ideal world you should answer all questions to gain as many marks as possible. I don't think the exam board is out to get us that much! I hope you get the marks you want!

    No, I didn't do that thankfully We're only studying Christianity in RE so I knew I just had to write about Christianity. Anyways, no worries. I asked my RE teacher and she said I wasn't going to lose all the marks for just missing out one question, which was the whole problem. So problem solved
