← UPDATED: British GCSE exam: evolution FAIL

Must be a bad exam board - I finished my GCSEs over a year ago, and the exam board I was on didn't even waste time giving anything other than evolution any validation in the course. Creationism was never mentioned once during the course, except maybe in derision by a teacher.

Also, I disagree with the statement that exams are being 'dumbed down'. Just because some of the questions are stupid, doesn't mean the entirety of them are easier than they used to be. I sometimes feel all this hullabaloo is solely to bring teenagers down and make them feel useless/incompetent compared to their ever-so-wise elders.

And the newspapers hate us, too :P
