GCSE cheats encouraged

3rd June 2005 at 01:00
I have been following the remarks about teachers cheating with great interest.

I am a moderator at GCSE. At our recent standardisation meeting, we were told that we were not the coursework police and we had to accept that the work in front of us was the pupils' unaided work.

If moderators are not policing the system, who is? The message from the exam board is clear. Keep on cheating. They could not care less.
