We all just didn't bother doing anything for them. Hopefully the school will have realised what a waste of time they are by now. What's the point? It's just like removing any academic substance from a subject and then calling it a 'skill'.

I hate keyskills too. I pass all the keyskills exams at level 3. I am not exactly the brightest person on the planet but to be honest Level 3 keyskills is no way near the A level standard it is supposed to be. Anyway the stupid drunk 70 year old tutor we had no idea how to submit all the course work. He did it wrong and the entire college failed. I wasn't too annoyed because although I never got the worthless key skills qualification I already hade enough points from A levels so it didn't effect my university entry.

We were told we would have to do keyskills, however its just a joke luckily for me. On our assignments we have keyskills to be assessed. It then lists the 3 Key Skills plus others such as team work etc.

We don't have to actually do any work for it at all though so I guess by including that they are keeping the stupid government happy. Bonking Key Skills is the best thing you can do but not if it counts towards your degree.

Very interesting. I suppose it is a 'key skill'...
