An exam board is offering certificates to youngsters for carrying out everyday tasks such as HAIR BRUSHING and HAND WASHING - all at the taxpayers' expense.Sun story ... bus stop qualificationSun story ... bus qualificationThe SunIt seems unbelievable, but the criteria listed on this page are all genuine.Yesterday, The Sun told how teen Bobby McHale was recognised by exam board AQA for catching a bus.He didn't even realise he had passed the "test" when he took part in a three-week council-run youth centre scheme called Bury and Rochdale Activity Generation. The Government-backed initiative costs £20,000 a year to run.Bobby, 15, said: "At first I thought I'd got a GCSE early."When I read it to the family we fell about laughing."Bobby's daft "Using Public Transport" certificate is one of 109 ridiculous Life Skills Awards dished out by AQA.
