"because the questions types, formats and even questions themselves are re-used with trivial changes."

To be fair, you can't muck around too much with each years exam papers or you'd not be able to compare with previous or future results. But I completely agree with the comment re teaching to the exam. That was an obvious consequence of the "league tables" that most people saw coming. Not that that hasn't always been a problem, but the league tables exacerbated it.
