Hundreds of thousands of children across the country are taking exams this week.

But with an education secretary who appears to keep making spelling mistakes in her letters, parents who can't answer questions for 7-year-olds themselves, and an exam board that keeps accidentally posting answers online, many must be left wondering what hope there is for the children...

Apart from this kid:

The above photo, posted to Reddit, purports to show the answers given by DPotter05's nephew on a maths exam.

The child has since been hailed a genius by users of the site for simulteneously managing to provide answers that are definitely correct, while apparently not having a full grasp of the subject.

As one user so aptly put it:

Very clever. I would have never thought to do this and I'm 33. F--k me.
