GCSE Music - What Idiots.

(Photo by Jack Hynes)

Year 11 pupils sitting music GCSE have been given exam papers with the answers written on the back. The OCR exam board (Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations) paper involved pupils listening to pieces of music and then identifying composers and styles of music, and at the end of the paper was a copyright acknowledgement for each piece of music. Twelve thousand people took this exam. Hahaha.

Listen to my friend Wil being interviewed about it yesterday by BBC Radio (Mp3)

I remember my Biology O level practical (1978)when we had to be split into two groups because of lack of space in the labs for the practical. We passed the first group coming out eating raw carrots and waving chicken's feet. We grabbed our notes and all passed!
