Dumb And Dumber

This exam cheat instructional vid has had 1.6m hits on YouTube: you won't need any of it to sit A Levels

And surely everybody knows that improving trend reflects nothing more than the systematic dumbing down of standards.

And surely everybody knows that independent research shows A Levels are on average two whole grades easier than 20 years ago.
