Oops

Disappointingly, there haven't been many howlers in the exam marking so far. However, the passage is about drug cheats in sport and the writer says there has been a "smorgasbord of examples" of this in all types of competitions. Various candidates' answers make it clear that they assume that smorgasbord is a banned substance.

I vaguely fantasise about young people whispering to each other at wild parties in the next few months about whether they've tried any yet.

My knowledge of wild parties is somewhat limited.

You have time yet to learn Isabelle! Just wait until Mr. Cute Grandson hits his teens!

Isabelle, I bet you could find a wild party if you really tried......

Put the right words into Google and you'll find some invitations and offers you never dreamed of!

Brilliant! It does sound vaguely illegal, it has to be said. But fun. 'I went to a friend's racy party and we played Smorgasbord' ... that kind of fun.

Wild = parties with smorgasbord, obviously. I've never been to one of them.
