Educational standards in moonbattery-addled Britain aren’t what they once were:
A British high school student received credit for writing nothing but a two-word obscenity on an exam paper because the phrase expressed meaning and was spelled correctly.
The exam question was “Describe the room you are sitting in.” The student’s answer was “F— off.”
“It would be wicked to give it zero because it does show some very basic skills we are looking for, like conveying some meaning and some spelling,” [examiner Peter] Buckroyd was quoted as saying. “It’s better than someone that doesn’t write anything at all.”
Buckroyd said the student would have received a higher mark if the phrase had been punctuated.
Keep that in mind while preparing your cheat sheets, students!
