Dumbed down education

Education is being dumbed down again. It’s not really a surprise though. 14 year olds will be able to pass their maths exam by scoring 21% while in the GCSE exams you will be glad to know that those who take the exam can get marks for writing things like “fuck off”. I wonder if they could get a C if they wrote a load of swear words…

Children are no longer being challenged by these exams. We should be getting our school pupils to take tougher exams like the IGCSE so that our future workers are on par with workers from other countries.
