Most of us have to take exams at some point in our life. A few people enjoy it..
We don’t need muppets setting questions that are not just “impossible”, but truly impossible.
A fundamental gaff hit the headlines last week but how many times does it happen? How many more cock-ups happen at the start or the end of the process?
Distrust and lack of integrity in the system is on the up. Reliance upon it has fallen.
Through a couple more generations we shall create a new breed of “examiners” that probably struggle to devise a question, even if they can string enough words together.
There will be no accurate measurement of ability. How will employers recruit? Probably just on the basis of who talks a good job.
Many of those will be making it up. They will probably make up a few more things when they get in and others will follow.
So it spirals.
