THE NETHERLANDS - The complaints line of the National Action Committee for School Students (LAKS) has received about 2,300 calls on the first day of final school examinations.
 
Between now and the end of May, 200,000 secondary-school students will be taking their finals.
    
Most protests were about the Dutch language exams for the top streams of final year students. Staff manning the phone line summed up the complaints by saying people found the exam too difficult, too long, and the questions not clear enough.

There are 35 telephonists dealing with calls during the exam period, and more complaints are being handled via the LAKS website.
