New Exam in Drinking Alcohol

Apparently, it is worth 'half a GCSE' - I'm not exactly sure what that means. But, the new qualification is aimed at educating young people about sensible drinking.

With alcohol abuse costing the economy over £3billion a year, - not to mention health and social affects, there seems to be some good reasoning behind the new scheme.

It is estimated 25,000 school children drink to excess every week.
