I do coz I like to be smart and not dumb knowing nothing. Exams are disciplines to check that you are studying. Also I rather have exams and have people who passed it work at my company than any dumb person who knows nothing.

I don't mean dumbness I mean fun/amusing or boring/confusing.

I'm kind of looking back on the GCSE season nostalgically, I found it fun chatting and doing last minute revision sessions. It was also the first time I'd had study leave. The only exams that worried me were DT and Further pure maths

Exams are not amusing sadly (but I heard ocr bio exam has crosswords apparently, but crosswords don't amuse me.) I just want them to finish as I don't prefer studying under stress!

Exams are mostly testing memory, as long as you can remember facts you will pass.It doesn't necessarily test how smart you are. Thats my opinion anyway.

☝️He’s right you know
Only test what you could remember on that day at that time under those conditions where anything could affect performance, e.g. neighbour was rude to you (or bus driver), family emergency or health issue etc.

I don't like the exams as they aren't fair, I think they should monitor you through your whole school life only learning about how to take care of themselves in the future and base grades on improvement not memory because what is someone turns up to their gcse and they were predicted a nine but a family member or pet died that morning its gonna affect them for a while and they wont get the grade that they deserve. Also people who have a disability get the same test as everyone else. If theyre gonna do tests it HAS to be suited to the individual.
