can i write the n word in the exam

for english lit we are doing of mice and men for the 40 mark and if i have to write about crooks can i write the n word.. i am white...
I think if it is in context with the book and they say the n word in the story (you are using it as a quote) then yes, however if you are just using it in a normal sentence describing someone it will be seen as racist and you might get DQd
I would just use *.
Quoting a phrase from the book is accepted and will give you no consequences, but using it just out of nowhere is a big no no.
Like in LOTF When they say a 'pack of painted *******'
Emphasises that racism still exists even though many would believe this not to be the case

I am an invigilator and I highly recommend using the n word a lot as examiners highly favour this description of crooks. From my experience as a professional invigilator, according to many Harvard responses with higher number of n word usage were scoring higher marks, this is due to its Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, Spectrophotofluorometrically and Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia. Good luck kid, keep it up.BIG UP GEORGE.F.
