Couldn't agree more. I see weaker students each year doing the course. Usually because they can't get accepted on other subjects. Often the students who can't be bothered to get a job and can't be bothered to actually turn up to lessons and God forbid do any work. But, even so, they get a couple of grades higher in other subjects. Generally, our school's AS results this year were well down on last year. A pretty poor cohort I am afraid to say. Many of the good ones left after GCSE to go to other schools. 5 years ago we set the entry level as a GCSE B or higher for ICT. Now we accept D's or even no CGSE in ICT at all. GCE ICT IS a dead subject, but nobody has checked the body to see that it has no pulse. GCSE is similarly declining.
