Hey Ruby,

I used a laptop in my GCSE exams and will have one for my AS-Levels this summer. Without it, I would never have achieved the grades that I did. It saved my academic life. :D Of course, the spelling and grammar checker is disabled and the only programme you are allowed to use is either Notepad or Word.

Good luck!

Hi Ruby, it's Charlotte.

I used a computer (not a laptop though) for my year nine SATS and GCSEs. I was put in a separate room from everyone else with a separate invigulator incase something went wrong with the computer. I loved being in a room by myself! I agree with Vicky, without the use of a computer I would never have been able to achieve the GCSE grades I did. Are you doing your year nine SATS next year?

My friend used a laptop in her GCSE's. I was asked ages ago if I wanted one, but alas, I said no. I may have got a better grade in English if I used one, not that the content would be changed, just the general presentation would have been Nicer. Hopefully I will get a C in English, (Kneels down and prays to god that makes people get a C)

Yes, good luck to anyone taking any exams. I remember how stressed I was last year about my GCSEs, THEY'RE NOT WORTH IT!!!

Thats amazing that you can use a computer in exams I just thought you get extra time or something, I try so hard to write neatly on exam papers and I never can know if i get marked right cus you dont get the marked papers back on some exams if they mark me wrong because of my severly scruffy handwriting.
