    The educational establishment is trying to put an end to thinking by asking the same exam questions over and over again and giving the examinees very little time to do them. You are also expected to get 90% as opposed to 70% as in the old days, when some thought had to go into the questions during the exam.

    Yep it's true. As a teacher I do get frustrated teaching to the exam rather than teaching what is actually interesting and relevant. It seems like we can get a good debate started, relevant to the topic, but because it is not on the spec I have to stop it. It is frustrating to all.

    How do you propose we assess students' knowledge of the particular subject.
