All exams will be taken online within 10 years, says independent schools leader

The leader of one of the largest independent schools associations will make the bold claim that all examinations will be conducted online within 10 years.
David Hanson, the chief executive of the Independent Association of Prep Schools, will tell headteachers at the association's annual conference that the days of examiners having to decipher hastily scribbled answers will soon be over.
"I predict that in 10 years' time maths, English and science will still be core subjects but technology will have been completely embraced and will be used extensively by a generation of teachers who grew up with it," he will say on Friday.
