We're Doomed.

Over at Blognor Regis I see this:
Pupils are being rewarded for writing obscenities in their GCSE English examinations even when it has nothing to do with the question.

One pupil who wrote “f*** off” was given marks for accurate spelling and conveying a meaning successfully.
Will pupils sitting biology exams now be rewarded if they choose to draw large pictures of their genitalia on the exam paper, assuming that they are biologically accurate?

Only so long as they remember to include the 'transgendered'. Now there's an art project for them!

I hear that folding up the exam sheet into a paper plane and throwing it at the examiner earns an "A" grade in GCSE science.
