It seems that papers are getting harder and that certainly is a good thing. There was talk about a relaxation on the marking so it probably is time for them to be getting harder. This way they are more relevant for later life.”

It’s definitely a good thing that exams are getting harder. There are so many young people going for each job that being able to excel and stand out at a young age will be better for their careers.”

I think it’s a good thing. GCSEs need to be made tougher. Everything is about targets now, it should be about getting the child educated properly. They need to be toughened up with more focus on the core subjects like maths and the three sciences.”
