Exam papers draw a blank

6th June 2003 at 01:00
IT is comforting to know that the standard of teaching in schools continues to rise, as indicated on the reverse of recent examination papers.

The last page on the GCSE papers states: "Blank Page. There are no questions on this page" - whereas the back page of the A-level papers states: "Blank Page" only.
