...but as Chopper said, the evidence is proven; as has the plagiarism of online study, and parents wholly composing their kids' course work...
...I have always had a very high IQ (once again, proven
) and my term time work was exemplary, but I used to suffer crippling nerves during examinations and consequently my grades did not reflect my ability.
Under the current model I would have walked everything; without any nefarious assistance...
I'm not sure if your saying course work is a good thing because it would of helped you not have to suffer exams so much or a bad thing because it does not show full ability of the student and only those that are good at exams as well as knowing their stuff should be allowed through.
As you say you can be academically brilliant but collapse under pressure, so modular courses can be good for those, of course plagiarism is easy online but people have been passing degree's for centuries using plagiarism, maybe not the majority but it's always been there, internet or no internet.
I was a thick kid, I was put on the scrap pile not even entered for CSEs, I was remedial until I left in the Easter of my 16th year, funny after being told so many times how subnormal I was by the education system I entered college in my 20's studied GCSE's, their first year in existence, and then went on to study A levels in Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Biology with varying degrees of success and went to a uni that I hated, HATED!! and left after the first year.
Part of the reason I was bullied, apart from being ugly, is the fact that I was considered a dunce, the education system is not perfect but at least these days it has tried to help people who struggle maybe with exam nerves and lesser humans like me to feel they can achieve at least some qualifications at the end of school, I didn't have that luxury because in my day if you weren't in at least the top 3 sets your were not considered worthy of an education and I was in 6th.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
