AS-level fiasco

1st June 2001 at 01:00
Before the election, the public should be made aware of the huge errors that the Government has made with the new ASA-level course.

I am now faced with a situation where I am being forced to take seven module exams (out of the 12 that make up my four AS-levels) in a 36-hour space n June. My school has complained to the boards concerned, only to be told that "everything will be fine next year". This is of little comfort to me. I should be interested to know if your readers have had or know of similar problems.
