A little investigative googling gives the following for the past 10 years. This evidence suggests that since the crash - 'forced' retirements, etc., the number of errors has increased dramatically. A particularly notable error was the superintendent who handed out the wrong paper causing a complete resit for thousands of students. This makes me think that having more experienced troopers on the job may be worthwhile. Whatever about comparison with other countries comparisons and trends over recent years suggest a steep increase in exam paper errors since 2008.
