    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 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.
