Britain's Qualifications and Curriculum Authority decreed that secondary students must not be penalized for misspellings when taking an important hour-long test -- on English proficiency.

The spelling standard was loosened when only 71 percent of 14-year-old students managed to "reach the level expected in English" against a target of 75 percent.
