Spare a thought for those teachers who must have spent at least part or maybe all of their precious weekend marking the rancid drivel that I (and others) had served up for them the previous week. Today I received back some of my marks for my Industrial Studies exam. I was bleating on about the fact that I had scored only 40 marks for that little lot and that I would be lucky to score 40% overall. I also noted my average in maths was 51 – so I must have received back the mechanics element of that exam. What I didn’t mention was whether that was marks or a percentage. Units boy, units!
