    Sorry for the stupid question, my GCSE was closed book last year, so I don’t know what open book is like 😂🤔 obviously it is the book that the exam is on.

    Thanks a lot!

    It depends on your Spec - what exam board? Also, is it the play or prose? For example, I am on CCEA and I'm pretty sure our play is open book but the novel is closed book

    Ah I misread your question! I thought you were asking if you can take it in - as in is it open book ahaha
    You're lucky! It's pretty handy, although I would still learn quotes as it can take forever searching for them. You can take in your own copy as long as it has no annotations inside

    Nope.

    If it is open book, then you will be given a clean copy in the exam.

    Your school will give you a clean copy to use in the exam.
