    Anyone heard of any schools being banned because they were caught cheating this year?

    Didn't think so. Same as last year / last 15 years then.

    Well done, OFQUAL. Another successful year you can be proud of.

    How 'bout this to tickle the testicles:

    www.theguardian.com/.../secret-teacher-we-help-pupils-to-but-how-long-before-its-exposed

    It is amazing, isn't it, how much anecdotal evidence there is for cheating every bloody year. Yet OFQUAL and JCQ and the Exam Boards and the Government just ignore it, every single year. And they have done this for decades!!!

    Do they not understand the long term damage they are doing to UK qualifications? GCSE A grades are worth as much as used toilet paper now. A Level grades the same. Cheating in schools in the UK is endemic, ingrained, habitual and will continue to be so, even after changes to the the A Level and GCSEs. And ICT is probably the one subject where it is absolutely everywhere.

    So very sad for everyone, not least the students.
