A-Level results day!
Kids jumping in the air and Mailites sneering about how easy exams are these days.

55% to get an A grade in maths? That's just ridiculous. That's just over half the questions correct. Talk about dumbing down. What do you have to get to achieve an A*? 60%? There are just no more words for this dumbing down of education

Soon our exam and university placing systems will become so distorted that the genuinely clever pupils will shun university leaving them populated by the less able intellectually challenged. All this because of dumbing down A levels and University degrees - which are 10 a penny in nonsense subjects. Our Universities are now businesses rather than places of learning and as such have to attract "customers" - no matter their ability. Just bums on seats - doesn't matter what they turn out they will just keep dumbing down and dumbing down so that everyone gets a degree. These once mighty institutions brought down to factory production lines -- thanks to Tony Blair.

And you need just 53% to get the equivalent of an A. And 13% to pass. Pathetic.

A levels get easier and easier. Maybe schools should go back to teaching pupils about subjects rather than whatever socialist agenda is , in , at the time .
