Did anyone else find the AQA exams ridiculously difficult today? I had a number of very bright pupils completely deflated by the experience. They were doing the higher exam which, once again, was directed towards catching them out rather than testing their ability in the language. It's beginning to annoy me now as the AQA always seem to justify their choice of questions and language in some woolly way that absolves them. Do they want pupils to pass and schools to "buy" their exams? What were your experiences?
