The ability of pupils to optimise their answers for grading. As my sister once put it, "In my first essay, I tried to fulfill the assignment to the best of my ability. It got a very poor grade. In the next essay, I tried to please my teacher. It got an A."

It is high time this skill was formally taught in schools. I know my grades would have improved a lot.
