    I mean, I doubt Unis would care much, but I don't see why you don't turn up to the exam and just sit the exam, do **** in it, and leave. Especially considering that it's RE, you can just use "Love your neighbour" every question and use a bit of common sense and get at least a C, if not a B.

    They won't care about your grade, but if you're literally planning on not turning up than that's just ****ing stupid. I agree it's a pointless exam but at least turn up and do your best, it might help make your results look better overall. I didn't do any work or revision and ended up getting an A in the exam so just turn up on the day and do your best, its still a GCSE and you never know where it might help you down the line

    You only need 8 good GCSEs for uni.

    If school is entering you for the exam you need to turn up but if they are suggesting you don't take it, then spend the time on other subjects,
