It's Exam Season

I’m convinced that the media wrote a story about failing standards in exams twenty years ago, and all they do is change the numbers every August. During the A-Level and GCSE result days, you might get a little glimpse of happy students, but for the most part, it’s reports about how the country is getting dumber with every passing year. And then they forget about it for the most part until next August.

(Of course, if the pass rate had the audacity to fall in one year, then the sky would still be falling, I imagine)

I saw a lot of happy faces today, so congratulations to them, now that they’re probably firmly ensconced in the pubs of Oxford…
