Letter: Exam success.
Let us not forget the unsung heroes in this: the one out of every 35 candidates who didn't achieve pass standard. Without their efforts, the passes gained by the others would be meaningless. This elite, tiny minority is now an endangered species: year by year their numbers decrease. If the trend of the past 20 years continues, the WJEC may soon be the first exam board to achieve a 100% pass rate.
What improvement can follow that? Can we foresee the day when candidates will pass exams without the formality of actually entering?
