Ahh come off it. Scottish kids are 1% better able to find places. Bah. What drivel. 1000 kids is not exactly representative is it now? No mention of margin of error and confidance levels.
What next? Questioning adults about how much they know about the latest price cuts as tesco? These people need to get a life.
I have great skills at map reading. But throw me at a language and Im rubbish. Some kids are better at x subject, others are better at y. I loved history at school. My sister hated it. But then again I hated French and she loved it. All it shows is that people have ballanced taste in certain areas of interest.
