Sunday Telegraph highlights RSC views on exam standards

The Royal Society of Chemistry's view on falling standards in the UK examination process was featured in a Sunday Telegraph story yesterday.

The Sunday Telegraph story said that examiners had been urged to award marks for incorrect answers to pump up this year's scores.
