So, now we have another load of duff exam results.
English this time and naturally Welsh teachers and pupils are moaning about some harsh marking by the WJEC.
A word to the wise if I may. To begin with, the English GCSE exam only counts for 30% of the marks (the other 70% is cop out course work) and since when does an English teacher need to be told about ensuring ‘accuracy’ and ‘sentence structure’???
Well now, how about putting 100% of the marks on exam and no course work? Now this really would sort the men out from the boys and just watch the pass rates really tank if this was to happen.
One thing I am also certain of: If pupils today had to sit the exams my generation had to sit, they would all be having nervous breakdowns before they even got near an exam room!
Oh and today on the Welsh news, a Welsh rugby player has been hauled over the Potty Plaid coals for calling himself ‘British’.
Well just for the record, I describe myself as ‘I don’t give a damn about nationalist labels’ first, British second and European third.
PS And so much for the ‘superiority’ of Welsh medium schools.
