So now we know why Geography is so much easier than history

One of the more unfortunate revelations unearthed by the Daily Telegraph’s investigation into GCSE exam ‘cheating’ was a comment made about GCSE Geography. Steph Warren, a senior official at Edexcel, one of the biggest exam boards, was recorded by an undercover Daily Telegraph reporter claiming that “you don’t have to teach a lot” and that there was a “lot less” for pupils to learn than with rival courses. Of course this was put down a silly mistake. Just in the same way as WJEC has claimed that the two errant history examiners were simply rogues, two bad apples in a barrel of 500. I don’t think so!
