Silence of the Pink ‘Un IV

The FT‘s education correspondent Chris Cook has inexplicably missed out on yet another great story. An A-level maths exam due to be sat next week has been scrapped after a major security breach – it turns out the exam board, Edexcel, accidentally delivered a batch of papers to a British school in Egypt. The news was picked up by all the main news outlets, yet somehow the FT missed it, again:

  • Telegraph: A-level exam axed following major security breach
  • BBC: Maths A-level exam paper scrapped
  • Mail: Thousands of A-level exam papers pulped after security error
  • Press Association: Maths exam sent to schools in error

It’s not like the FT and Edexcel are owned by the same company or anything…
