CITY VIEWS: DO YOU THINK GCSE EXAMS ARE GETTING EASIER?

DAVID MARSHALL | CORK, BAYS AND FISHER

“I now view schools as politicised agencies. Education has changed, and governments use exams to make themselves look good. Students are taught to get a good grade, and are no longer prepared for life outside of the parameters of the exams.”

“I am here from India, where we have the same problem. When competition increases, schools tend to make education performance based, and forget about what is really important.”

SOPHIE MINTA | LLOYDS BANKING

“Schools no longer seem to be interested in cultivating intelligent students. Exam results now reflect the ability of the student to conform to standardised regulations, as opposed to individual intellect.”
