I am a Year 13 student, I have failed GCSE Maths many times and have one last resit opportunity in a few days. Unfortunately I know nothing and even if I study day and night it won't be enough to pass. So I am thinking of getting a friend who does A-Level Maths to sit my GCSE Maths exam for me. In my school no ID is required you just need to sit in your allocated seat. He will sit in my seat, write my name on the paper and do it for me without anybody noticing whatsoever. What do you think I should do? It is imperative I get a C because if I don't I on't be able to go to Uni and will ending up working at Tesco all my life. Please give me some good advice on what to do. Thank you

Don’t do that. Everyone else takes their GCSEs and so should u. Some people work day and night for years to just get a pass u csnr just get someone who isn’t u to do all that work for u.
It’s relaly demoralising then people who have worked hard tbh 😐

Aren't your exams normally started by a teacher? They will probably know who you are and know he is not you.

If you're caught doing this, both you and he could face serious consequences from the exam board.

Also, if you can't get the C, it's very likely you'd struggle with your uni course anyway.

The exams are started by an invigilator there are no teachers at the exam hall at all and I will be studying English Literature at Uni so don't need Maths just doing it as it is a formality it is not important to my course but still have to pass to get to uni

If the maths genuinely isn't essential for your uni course, why not contact the uni and see if they will waive this requirement for you?

Whatever they say, I do think you'd be taking a huge risk. The school will have some process in place to ensure the correct people are taking each paper (e.g. invigilators issues with photos), and if you get caught then it could invalidate your A-levels too.

How will I get caught? There is an extremely low chance I will get caught and it is a risk I think that is worth taking as I will end up failing at not being able to go to Uni and therefore jeopardising my whole future

I know people who have done this before and pulled it off before my eyes, unfortunately I have already contacted the uni and they have said they can't take me on if i don't get a C

1. Invigilators may notice they look older
2. Other candidates will let the invigilators know it’s not you
3. A teachers usually comes in to see the start and end of exams.

In my school there is a section for sixth form resits so it will not look odd, other candidates will not snitch as I know them all personally and throughout the duration of the exam start and end there are no teachers at all

Sixth formers will have separate rows, this is technically a competition for the top grades so you can’t really trust anyone and like I said, invigilators will notice.

Most units require C grade in English and Maths at GCSE. Maths is a must have, you can’t just get away with doing English.

What uni had you identified?

lol. No chance you'll get away with it.

Your mate may stand out. And usually a teacher comes in at the start / finish of the exam.

People like friends will snitch on you- if they have any sense of morals or right and wrong then they will let someone know or try and stop you.

Your school should have a way to check it is the correct person sitting the exam. Most schools/colleges use photo ID on desks. Are sure your school's policies haven't changed?
