Problems with exams? That's about right then....It is disappointing but not surprising that police have been called in to investigate another exam leak after an unknown number of students had advance sight of part of a GCSE religious studies (RS) paper last month (May). It is the latest of a series of damaging security breaches to hit summer exams in recent years, with social media enabling cheats to disseminate leaked questions quickly and easily.
But why does it happen and why is one exam paper so important? For those of us who find extreme difficulty in undertaking exams (yours truly has a 1st class honours Degree, a PGCE and a Masters Distinction but still finds it difficult to do a basic level 2 exam) the whole process is fundamentally flawed. It is generally accepted that exams are not a good method of assessment so why the fuss? Cheating is wrong, but in life everyone cheats if they can get away with it. Perhaps, rather than tinker with the shortcomings of the exam process the whole process of assessment should be overhauled........
