    I only just found out you lazy British lot don't actually have exams every year in highschool!

    I went through 6 years of 2 exam periods a year. Sometimes we had 3!

    We certainly did back in the day.

    I think they are trying to get education out of Schools wherever possible.

    How do they determine if you understand everything you did that year?

    We had exams coming out of every orifice when I was at school.

    They're piss easy now.

    Coursewurk?

    Getting the teacher to do your exam for you, more like.

    They now do things like "continual assessment" and bollocks like that.

    What Chavis said.

    That's pish!
    Nothing like a healthy amound of stress just before the holidays to make you enjoy them even more. No wonder all the kids are so badly behaved.

    I am seriously thinking of moving back to Belgium by the time this baby is ready to go to school.

    No exams... imagine. FFS.

    They don't do that in Private Schools, there's loads of exams and assessments. They still believe in teaching the weans. Also hunners of homework. True Story.

    If I win the lottery I might be able to send them to private school.

    My school didn't even do tests until GCSE level.
    It was a hippie school.
