GCSE exam

i've heard that (apparently) if someone dies during a GCSE exam, the rest of the cohort automatically passes. can someone confirm for me whether this is true or not?

very funny actually because the answer is unfortunately no, link to article here, great topic though.
The Metro have done an article on this stating that this is not true especially for the UK.

""What happens if someone dies during an exam in the UK?"

So what happens if someone dies during an exam? Many people erroneously believe that if someone dies in the exam room, everyone else gets an automatic pass. This certainly is not the case in the UK. No one gets a piggy back to success here, not even the traumatised." - Metro (Newspaper)
