Just how much can you dumb down examinations. They'll be giving them away with breakfast cereal next.

I really feel for the young kids doing exams these days because they have no way of measuring their achievements in this world. Everything they do in educational settings tells them they are doing a good job and yet when they meet the real world many cannot cope with the requirements that their employers have.
well for my exam i have to compose a piece of music, not so easy........if your a drummer that is. I can tell that if you are any bit decent at piano, 100% is'nt too hard
