New Maths Exam For 15-Year-Olds Causes Stir

EASTBOURNE - England - Pupils and parents at an East Sussex school are questioning a new Maths exam for 15-year-olds.

The new Ebacc maths exam which will replace the GCSE has caused some consternation amongst parent groups and pupils alike. The irregular questions were discovered during a preview of the new maths exams.

The exams proposed by Education Secretary Michael Gove are meant to be harder than the GCSEs but some say that the exams are a little weird.

Head teacher at the Bishop Bell Church of England School in Eastbourne, Lionel Simpers, said: “Pupils were attending a class for the new maths exam when alarm bells were raised at some of the questions.”

One of the maths questions asks: “If a 30 year old maths teacher takes a 15 year old female pupil off to France and they are travelling at an average speed of 23 mph what is the probability of the girl being relieved of her virginity?”

Then another maths question asks: “If the age of consent is 15 in France and it is 16 in the UK, what is the difference between the two countries?”

    To pass their Maths exam they need to do French oral.
