Record A-Levels. Thank you, PC World !

Classes? Who needs'em

So you thought yesterday's record A-Level results were down to easier exams or brighter youngsters or better teaching? Go to the bottom of the class.

No, it's down to students making better use of their PCs, according to PC World, the UK's leading retailer of PCs.

In a survey of 300 students, 'making most of their computer resources', was rated higher than 'more reading', 'better attendance at lectures' and 'paying more attention at class' as the best way to raise grades.

Only 'more revision' (mentioned by 31 per cent) came ahead of computing (ranked top by 26 per cent) as the best way to boost results in a study of attitudes sponsored by PC World.

So playing games, downloading MP3, gossiping by email and copying other people's work, with a bit of last-minute cramming thrown in, is the way to academic glory.

God Bless you, PC World! ®
