GCSEs vs O-Levels

Education News: As children went back to school last week with record numbers having gained five or more GCSEs, the old question of ‘are exams getting easier’ has raised its head yet again.

Some studies show that 100% of all students expected to gain A* results in every single subject by 2015, so The Poke decided to compare some sample O level questions from 1985 with some GCSE questions from the papers set this year, and leave it to you click through the selection and decide if we are raising a generation of teenagers who can’t even spell GCSE, let alone deserve one.
