Oh dear

I write on behalf of my amanuensis, Mr John Mitchell (School Diary, June 7), whose account of my weekly woes on that date made mistaken reference to a discontinued examination qualification entitled "O level".

As Mr Mitchell is fully aware, no such examinations were ever offered in the Scottish state system. His original copy used the correct terminology of "O grade", but this was, alas, amended.

Mr Mitchell offers his apologies and assures readers of his earnest endeavours to report events accurately in the face of unwarranted interference in his copy.
