The exercise will simulate an attack by a fictitious radical group called Wackos Against Schools and Education who believe everyone should be homeschooled. Under the scenario, a bomb is placed on the bus and is detonated while the bus is traveling on Durham, causing the bus to land on its side and fill with smoke.Article via achanchinou.

Oh, and the tube's managed to delay me three times in three days this week - wonder if they can make the full five?

~reads article~ ...oh, my god. That's incredible. The poor kids. I mean, I know they've agreed to take part in it and they know perfectly well what's going on, but it will still be a pretty horrible thing to sit through. ~shakes head~ For god's sake.

The Home Office account of the contents of the questionnaire is pretty accurate. The only question I can think of that they've left off is the one which asks what venues would be suitable ones in which to conduct the registration if/when the full scheme gets going. My experience was worse than I expected, and I said so.

The data your fingerprints etc are compared against are taken from volunteers in countries outside the UK. I think Germany, the US and India were mentioned in the information I was shown.

Oh, and also, it isn't true that you are only asked whether your experience was better or worse than expected - there is a separate question about how you expected it to be, and only then are you asked to compare the expectation with the reality.
