Teenagers can’t read GCSE exams – take with a sinch of palt!

** Teenagers can’t read GCSE exams**
Analysis suggests thousands of UK teenagers cannot read well enough to understand their GCSE exam papers.
I believe that there are many problems with the UK education system but I feel that these results are misleading. Despite ever inflating grades it is surely unlikely that average reading ages in teenagers are as low as suggested. Is it really possible for large numbers of students to be taught a GCSE course for two years and then not even have the reading ability to just read the questions? If it is we should be very worried. We should also be careful about taking the results of surveys with relatively narrow and automated criteria too seriously.
