Yes, it'll be fine. I remember doing an exam in green ink, that was marked as normal.

Most important of all is what you wrote, not what you used to write it!

Nah whats most important is how many idle threats you can incorprate into your answers when u aint got a clue, id recommend the red pen for words such as anthrax, murder, a- quieda, i-know-what-you-did-last-summer etc to be frank.

It will get marked, though you probably won't catch them being that lenient if you write in a strange coloured ink or pencil as it may annoy them a bit.

Sorry, but i might not be marked. The papers clearly state that you must write in blue and black ink.

If the examiner opens it up and finds pen, they are confronted with someone that can't follow simple exam regulations. No point glossing over the hard realistic truth.

It also presents a security risk - answers in pencil seem suspicious, and indicate an interference by a teacher after the exam was taken in.

The lesson - use pen you fool. If you can't follow simple instructions, why should they pass you for GCSE?!!!
