    You say 'so called' as though the fact that we're A-level students is in question.

    And please, get a grip. BTECs have their place and A-levels have theirs. If you want to go into university, A-levels get you there. IF you want to do a more vocational course, take a BTEC.
    Now please get out of your own arse.

    I think the thread itself says far more about the OP than the OP thinks they are saying about others.

    This is all just a case of bad examiners and teachers. And they'll be bad whether they're involved in A-Levels or BTECs.

    It has nothing to do with the students. I did not cheat in any of my A-Levels, and I feel insulted that you'd suggest I got my grades through cheating.

    I'm not even going to bother correcting your grammar. You appall me.

    To be fair from watching the news and reading the articles and coming from a BTEC background, I can see what the OP is trying to say but the way he has present it is appalling.

    "It has nothing to do with the students" You seem smart but you seem to not have understood the article.

    The articles are implying that teachers know what keywords get better marks and know what questions will turn up in the exams. By telling the students this, it gives them unfair advantage towards the exam. Don't you agree? Chances are if you didn't know this knowledge then you would get lower marks.

    However this is just speculation. I know i don't know you personally and for that reason i can't judge you academically but it would be ignorant to suggest people would all get the same marks without this knowledge.
