w00t, as we educated types say: w00t!

I take back everything I have ever said about the dumbing down of British education. It is clear that this year’s GCSEs are exceptionally rigorous and discerning exams after the FWB got one B (Textiles), two As (maths and Art), and all the rest A*. She also had a letter telling her that she had scored one of the top five marks awarded to anyone in her English literature GCSE. That’s the one which was taken this year by _362,438_ pupils.

Oh yes – she also got an A for the history AS level, taken a year early.

    Five in 362,438? Curiously, that’s EXACTLY the chances of getting your leg blown off by an exploding Dell laptop battery pack. Coincidence? I fear not.

    Nevertheless: heartfelt congrats, and may the rest of the world consider itself duly warned.
