Exam whingers

The A-level results came out today, showing another rise in the numbers of passes and the usual whingers, complaining about falling standards, have come out of the woodwork. It's nice to see David Miliband (the schools minister) getting his retaliation in early in defending the exam results and I have to agree with him. Although it's been nearly a decade (give or take a few years) since I did my A-levels, the amount of effort that went into them – by both students and teachers – was incredible, and the belittling of the results is incredibly morale-sapping. So I say go students and wish the whingers a long life to the pain.
