Further exam disruption as religious studies paper found to contain no answers


Students have faced further disruption to their AS-level exams after it was revealed that the answers for a religious studies exam were based on an illogical concept that revolves around super-beings and magic.

The exam board have reassured students who took the exam that no-one will be disadvantaged by the error.

“In the absence of any concrete evidence to the contrary we’ve decided that all answers provided will now be marked as correct,” said a spokesperson for the exam board.

Students who took the exam have spoken of their relief after weeks of worry.

“There’s no evidence to prove or disprove the existence of a god or gods,” insisted 17 year-old Zac Willingham, who took a punt on Christ’s last supper being a buffet of mini scotch eggs, chicken dippers and Wotsits.

“I’m just glad that the exam board have opened their minds to the possibility that people who follow Islam might spend the afterlife playing eternal Laser Quest.”

RE Exam papers just ‘right’

Director of the Joint Council for Qualifications Jim Sinclair said, “Awarding bodies have taken into account that religion is littered with contradictions and inconsistencies, but then so are a number of subjects.”

“With this in mind, we are pushing for exams to be centred around just two subjects that today’s teenagers will find invaluable.”

“Contraception and how to survive on unemployment benefits.”
