Roll up, roll up!
For the easiest exam in Nanny's Britain.
Yes folks, Nanny is literally giving away thousands of GCSE qualifications in media studies this year.
As we all know, Nanny believes that everyone should go to university; something to do with keeping the unemployment figures down.
Unfortunately, owing to Nanny's inability to teach children how to read the word "cat" by the age on 9 (see earlier post "Nanny Bans Words - Epilogue"), she is having something of an uphill struggle; even with "piss easy" subjects such as media studies.
Therefore she came up with a real barnstormer of an idea.
Why not just give the qualifications away?
That way everyone can gain enough GCSE's to enter university.
Soon we will all have degrees, and life will be perfect!
Nanny has decided to allow children, sitting the media studies GCSE, to see the exam papers 4 weeks before taking them.
Sixteen-year-olds taking the media studies GCSE were given the full set of questions a month in advance, to allow them to prepare for the three-hour exam.
This exam accounts for 50% of the total marks.
Media studies is taken by 40000 pupils, how odd!
Needless to say, some people (myself included), are suggesting that this makes media studies even more of a "Mickey Mouse" subject than before.
Nick Seaton, the chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, said:
"This seems to negate the purpose of an exam and increase the disdain in which many of our exams are now held".
"It really makes a mockery of the system and undermines the achievement of those who have worked hard".
Last year 97.6% of candidates passed the paper, with 60% achieving A grades.
We are breeding a nation of empty headed morons.
This of course suits Nanny perfectly, nobody will have the wit or intelligence to challenge her.
