Venom Advertising, an exciting, fun and dedicated sales & marketing company takes a look at the recent Exam rewrite after the GCSE ICT paper having issues.
A GCSE exam has been postponed after details of some questions may have been revealed to a seminar of teachers. About 150 pupils in Wales and an unknown number in England are due to sit the ICT exam. Welsh Education Minister Leighton Andrews told the exam board WJEC its ICT paper, due to be sat by 11 schools in Wales and England in January, must be rewritten.
WJEC put off the exam until March and apologised for the inconvenience.It said advice on the scope of the exam had been given to some but not all teachers at schools and colleges. Venom Advertising’s Managing Director commented, saying, “This is a huge error that should have been more thoroughly prevented!”
Mr Andrews ordered the Cardiff-based exam board to withdraw and rewrite the ICT (Information and Communication Technology) unit three paper after it is understood one of its examiners gave details of questions at a seminar.It comes after WJEC suspended two examiners after the Daily Telegraph said it had filmed them telling teachers at a seminar which exam questions to expect. Venom Advertising’s MD added: ‘If pupils leave school after their GCSE’s being told all the answers they will be in trouble when they finally get a job and they cannot perform a task their CV says they can, this will result in that person losing their job.’
Gareth PierceWJECs chief executive has confirmed that the Exam will be postponed until March. A Spokesman for WJEC has made a statement saying: ‘The decision to postpone was made after it became apparent that advice given to teachers at recent professional development events had not been available to teachers at all 11 centres with candidates for this examination,"
In conclusion Venom Advertising’s Managing Director says ‘I do feel for these young people, the economy is so harsh right now, and they don’t need anything to slow down their ability to find work. But they shouldn’t have to suffer because of tutors trying to cut corners’
