Please tell me that none of you are actually interested in that crap? Not sure if it had been discussed on here yet so I thought I'd just say it anyway. It's shit. Worse than Popstars. Why are they dragging it out so long, why do we need more manufactured crap and why do they keep making them sing shit songs week in , week out when singing ability has sod all influence on the end result ?? We all know Mr. stutter will win obviously.
If you got an A without knowing that a 'week' in English is semaine in French then somewhere along the line, the education department messed up
Then again they do tend to be overly generous these days. I heard that this kid who was going to private school didn't know right up until their final English exam that you needed to start a new sentance with a capital letter and they still managed a B or something. They seem to give high grades away these days for next to nothing.
but then again... my maths board is Edexcel.... so I dread to think what'll happen
my friend did that re-sit where they'd completely fu(ked up one of the questions... she ain't impressed..... and I can't believe what they did for those papers from Knutsford High! shaaaaaady exam board
you sleep to rest your head, but me, I sleep to dream
Exam boards suck don't they. I've had a few papers where before we could start, we had to correct errors. Then when I got to sixth form, after my first exam they decided to change my Id number so I was no longer in alphabetical order. Trying to find my seat was a nightmare!
The worst experience with exam board's I've had was in Media studies coursework. Apparently our teacher was on the board of examiners for that subject or some nonsense and our college set the so called national standard. But when we got our coursework back, whoever marked them made everyone lose between 5 and 20 marks. Basically we all dropped an entire grade. Which was crazy. Fortunately in the end after a big fiasco and many complains from our college, I only lost a few marks.
Apparently with that paper the other day where there was an impossible question to answer, the examining board knew about it already because someone in Hong Kong (of all places!) told them.
