About the Survey <ul><li>The survey was carried out with 7,296 pupils aged between 11 and 15 from 246 schools in England. </li></ul><ul><li>Are pupils honest? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Since questions about drugs were introduced in 1998, the questionnaire has asked about Semeron, a fictional drug. In 2010, only 13 pupils (0.2% of the total sample) reported that they had ever taken Semeron; this matches the experience of previous years, and lends support to the view that most pupils do not exaggerate their drug use.” </li></ul></ul>
