Examinations or just cursory glances?

Chris Moyles sounds like he’s just beheld a human rights abuse when a listener texts in, announcing that he’s about to sit a three-hour exam.

“Three hours??!!!” Moyles asks incredulously. “In an exam for three hours?!”

Well, yes, why not? There was a time when three hours was standard and I can recall plenty of my own exams where I’d have welcomed a fourth, just to get everything written down.

Thirty years on, my son has a GCSE this morning. Forty-five minutes .

I feel like a grizzled old combat veteran. Which is ridiculous.
