Eton scholarship exam from 2011

Short version

1. Twenty-five protesters have been killed by the Army. You are the Prime Minister. Explain why employing the Army against violent protesters was the only option available to you and one which was both necessary and moral.

2. Consider the following sentences in Jangli (a made-up language) with their English translation:

Waldan razu - I am a writer; Had waldan razu - I am the writer. Write down how you express the following in Jangli - the.

3. Applicants read a speech by inspirational teacher Zarathustra to his pupils and are asked what is meant by the following phrase: "You are my believers: but what do believers matter"?

4. If today is Friday, what is the day that follows the day that comes after the day that precedes the day before yesterday?

Long version:

This is taken by 13 year olds.

How would you do?

If you can answer question 4 in 5 seconds, you probably had a chance.

Pro - You've just reminded me,

Couple weeks back, I actually wanted to see what you lot thought about the idea of banning public schools.

At the very least at primary school level.

I don't agree, if there is a demand and people have the money let it be.

 

It's a service.

 

Do you agree they should be banned? why? Social exclusion? would it damage social mobility?

How would it damage social mobility? This is very reason why banning public school at even a primary school level would make sense.

A service you know. One of the most powerful countries in the world and educating its children is some sort of commodity yea?

This model we have for education is the root cause of many many of our social problems.

sorry I meant do you think NOT banning public schools damages social mobility?

What's wrong with viewing it as a commodity? it's about being logical not getting picky with nouns

the term public pisses me off like its some place i got access to

 

the advantages these privately educated kids have is nuts, but

 

i can't really hate on parents wanting the best for their kids.

 

Remember how rich kids use to get moved to in secondary

 

which wouldn't be a problem in primary schools but the real

 

advantage is gained in public secondary + sixth form

thats easy as shit

 

you just look at each one and go by process of elimination and what words appear the same in each sentence in jangli ad they do in english

 

so if both sentences have "office" in it then just look at both sentences and look for the same word in both...

:lol: It's the very same reason why I use it. More time with air-quotes. I'm a douche. lowe me.

 

I think the difference in the education attained from the very best schools in the country in comparison to that of state education is so stark, even at the most basic levels - that it would make a a big difference to have every under 11-12 year old child have access to the same education. MASSIVE difference.
