In the real world we have time and calculators and no pressure of knowing that, if we get it wrong, we will lose our whole careers.
If I fail the test I will have wasted five years of further educaion, for which I had to take out four student loans, as well as borrowing money from relatives and the bank. And then there is the humiliation - all for a maths test of 48 mins.
I doubt that the Deparmtment for Education and Employment will be there to pick up the pieces when I am trying to work out my future in the job centre queue.
