There’s this thing called being so open-minded your brains drop out

(Good old Richard Dawkins)

Well, if you’ve ever wondered ‘What is the Qur’an?’ or ‘Church going is no longer important… discuss!’ you could have done my RE exam. Some people had trouble with the Eucharist (how many marks are available for ‘something to do with Jesus?’) but luckily I was up to date on the whole bread \ wine thing, along with [gulp] Muslim birth rituals. However, this year: no good, no evil, no Easter, no Ramadan, no Eid. There was a sprinkling of baptism though. (hahaha)

Oooh but then – World of Work! Mr X would have liked this one, especially ‘Describe the effects of a multinational on an LEDC’ (Less Economically Developed Country for those not quite up with the latest in PC terms). I was quite mild, only claiming the ‘possibility of lower health and safety standards’.

And the last question was a bit of a gem as well – racial discrimination in employment today. Does it exist? I wondered about writing “No, there is no racism in Britain today at all” but figured that wasn’t quite enough for 10 marks.

Well, tomorrow it gets harder – English Literature. I’m re-reading ‘Of Mice and Men’ and might get round to looking at the poetry again, if I can put up with Simon ‘Monotone’ Armitage.
