Sexy A-Levels

It's Sexy A-Levels!

It gives me no pleasure to say this, Southern Daily Echo, but this is more like a low rent recreation of the Raft Of The Medusa than it is a celebration of Sexy A-Levels Day.

Success, illustrated

July 15th, 2008

To: The Editor, The Times:

Sir, Your article on degree classification (report, June 8) was by my computation the 20th successive article about higher or secondary education to be illustrated with pictures of attractive female students.

As the time for GCSE and A-level results approaches, with the no doubt inevitable record-breaking pass rates, I would welcome your assurance that the results will be illustrated by utterly spontaneous and unposed photographs of attractive girls opening envelopes, hugging effusively, jumping for joy, forming human pyramids etc, and that no exam success whatsoever is predicted for girls who are fat, spotty or plain, and certainly for no boys at all.

Just try to guess what featured prominently in the photograph the newspaper chose to accompany this letter.1
