Ofqual finds essay writing services are poor quality and unlikely to get A-level students who cheat with coursework a good grade Students tempted to use essay writing services that claim to guarantee A-grade papers are more likely to receive shoddy work that would fail an A-level, as well as putting them at risk of being caught cheating, according to the exam regulator Ofqual.

Tetris is one of the most successful video games ever made of course the movie industry was eventually going to buy up the rights and turn it into a film. Why let the fact that it is an abstract puzzler about falling shapes get in the way?
