    Are children being spoon fed with no longer effective information on web based programmes such as BBC Bitesize?

    At this specific moment in time, the standards of GCSE results throughout Britain are decreasing.

    If we look at recent statistics we see that since Bitesize has been introduced GCSE results have been rapidly going down-hill.

    In a recent poll:

    60% of teens say that they revise using web based revision

    20% of teens say they revise out in the woodland to be at one with nature and take in the beauty of the scenery for inspiration

    10% of teens bragged "I don't revise, its for wussies"

    another 10% of teens said "I revise the night before but usually wake up in the middle of the night having wet the bed"

    So we can tell that Web based revision is the most popular form of revision amongst teenagers. But when asked in a recent survey "Why do you use the internet for revision" some answers were shocking:

    "My parents think i'm revising, I keep bitesize up on one screen and google on the other and when they aren't near I search for swear words"

    "I use the internet for revision only so that one day I will have to buy glasses, I really want glasses but I need to impair my vision first"

    "My mum made me, I wanted to revise on the chimney but she shouted at me really loudly and me cry."

    "My dad thought it would be a good idea"

    "I don't want to lose weight"

    Children aren't using these sites for the benefit of education, they are using it for excuses to be on the internet.

    We must ban this and force children to resort back to revising in the woodland as they should be.

    It is also revealed that 30% of children who revise online have projectile diarrhoea in the middle of exams whilst the others sit content with orgasmic pleasures coursing throught their bodies.

    Do they HAVE to be in the woodland? I'd have to travel miles to the nearest forest =[

    I revised on the internet then went over it again with ordinary books, worked fine for me! Especially in subjects which are hard to revise for.
