New plans to improve student grades by leaking exam papers

"If I'd only worked hard at my weekend job, I could have saved enough to buy the leaked exam paper."

“If I’d only worked hard at my weekend job, I could have saved enough to buy the leaked exam paper.”

A new government initiative to improve student grades and exam results is being trialled by exam board Edexcel.

A spokesperson said: “Several exam papers were leaked over the past few years and we noticed a sharp increase in correct answers.

“We put two and two together and deduced that the leaked papers must have contributed to the improved results.

“It makes sense, therefore, to organise leaks in order to maintain high student grades and pass rates.

A spokesperson for the Department for Education said: “We’re willing to consider all suggestions that may improve children’s education and exam results.

“Leaking test papers may seem counter-intuitive but it thoroughly tests pupils’ ability to access the internet and use social media.

“We believe social media is a ‘coming thing’ and will play an increasingly important role in young people’s everyday lives. Therefore, by leaking the questions we are also testing several other skills at the same time. Rather clever, don’t you think?”

One student who is saving up to buy leaked papers next year complained: “Why can’t they put it on Facebook? I’ll have to join Twitter now and that sucks.”
