About the Book

The O Level Book settles that age-old argument between the generations: were the exams of yesteryear really harder than anything children have to face today in the age of calculators and spell checkers? Are contemporary kids less intelligent than previous generations?

Here is the chance to find out as the whole family pit their wits against each other in the ultimate generation game, contrasting the schooling of old with modern educational practices.
Testing you on these old-school topics: English Language; General Science; Geography and history; Household Cookery; Mathematics.

A wonderfully nostalgic yet testing anthology, The O Level Book encourages you to dust off your slide rules and get your thinking caps on to see who will come out top in your family!
