    Another news flash, in my school during the art exam some people were allowed to take their final pieces home and work on them or even well after the 10 hour period. This happen in any other people's schools?

    Meh, could be argued as the quality of what they've written can be questionnable, but i think you're probably right, i mean peopel who give up after 10 mins (chavs) wont get A*s now will they :rolleyes:
    Most chavs take the approach "education is for dumbasses" (how does that work?). No chav would ever get an A*, it's just not in their genes. :eviltongu @ Markus.

    It is slightly unfair the fact that you should get extra time as afterall the exams are a certain length for a reason, however as it wasnt your fault you cant do anything about it.
    thanks, i mean we were basically forced to go through our exams so many times by our year head, and she told people to slow down.

    Yeah, that's what I mean. Exactly.
    For example, my one and only non-academic GCSE subject was PE, and seriously, it was full of chavs. I was like the only candidate still scribbling after 20 minutes! (The exam was 2 hours).

    Shamen, I hear ya. I think it's right that people with disabilities or impairements should be permitted extra time, but I don't think it's right otherwise. What I meant was that people who do the best usually take the longest because they check over their answers, write in detail, get all the points in etc. Basically, it shows they care about their work and haven't just sacked it off halfway through.

    i can understand what you mean, but in some of the extra time we had, i had not fully finished and the extra time i got was in trying to finishing the paper and writing a load of crap! Anyway im sure the extra will have effect on my mark but then again in that time i was basically writing crap and repeating myself!
    Yeah, but a lot of people I know didn't fully finish papers either, but they didn't get extra time. I didn't finish one, but I didn't get extra time. I guess timing and precision is a skill, and it's our own fault really when we don't finish. Shouldn't allocate ET. However, please don't think I'm having a go at you Bowie88, my dude. (Coz you are a dude!). I just don't think your school was in the right. Although I'm sure if it was me, I too would take it and appreciate it.

    All of that is so true!
    Glad you agree!

    I took P.E. and the chavs only took it because of the practical side. All the chavs chose football and got 10, 10, 10, 10 for practical, but when it came to theory they all slacked and probably got B/C overall... Chavs suck! I'm gunna buy an Anti-Chav band, me thinks.

    Yeah, a lot of the chavs in my PE set weren't entered for the actual exam because they didn't do their coursework and they got crap mock results so there was no point. I got highest in the year in the mocks, 85%, that was without coursework mark, but that only scraped an A. 85% was an A!! The grade boundaries are ridiculously high in PE!
