Oh how the world has changed...
Remember when YOU were doing exams? Come hell or high water, you sat them, you squirmed around a while, you scribbled some stuff, and you got out pronto chop chop. Exams were evil, grades were won and lost on skill, talent, the ability to weave your jumper into the complete works of Chaucer!
Not any more. Now our lovely cuddly everyone-wins-all-the-time society has decreed that kids should have every chance to get higher grades... how? by simply giving them the extra percent required!
See how to get more marks! - got a headache? have an extra 1%; did your bloody hampster die on the morning of your Math exam? HERE! HAVE 2% EXTRA!
Am I being unfair? Am I simply not seeing the problem, fixed by this innovative and just solution? Or have we reached the point where there is soon to be no point in even taking exams?
