So what's the longest GCSE or A-Level exam? The longest I've seen is a 3 hour A-Level Creative Writing exam...

10 hour photography exam was so boring, two whole school days on photoshop and printing out your work. Plus you couldn't talk so you had to snatch the glue sticks off of people lol

I had a 2 hour history exam on Friday and I have an English Language re-sit after half term which is 2hr 15mins I presume. But I already have an A in it so I'm not that arsed about it, I just thought I'd resit because why not?

3 hour exams are the longest I've seen

There's 10-20 hour Art exams but I don't really count them as exams

Was it an external exam?Controlled Assesments/Coursework doesn't count.Longest I've seen are the 3 hour STEP exams in Maths, which I will probably be taking next year.

If you already have an A, what is the point in resiting?

The OCR paper I sat in June 2012 was 2 hours 45 minutes. It may have changed since then or you may be sitting a different paper.

That's what I thought, and I'm honestly so happy with an A - I was over the moon when I got my results but my teacher said I may as well try because I have capability of getting an A*. Plus, the exam is after half term and I only have four, very spaced out exams then (I have two on the first two days back, one of which is Eng Lang, and I have two more on a Monday and Friday two weeks after those) so there isn't much stress so I don't mind it. If is was during last week or the upcoming week I definitely wouldn't have done it.

That makes more sense
Good luck with it!

3 hour AEA/STEP exams. Exams never really get any longer than 3 hours. It's just impractical to have them run on for much longer.

Longest was 2hr 15 mins at gcse, can't remember what subject though! I hate exams longer than an 1hr 30 because I'm nervous so I always end up having to go to the loo! Embarassing!
