im gonna ignore the easier A level comments! i got BBCC. Now its time for a good night out! Nice thread
Also many do not let students continue to A2 unless they have at least a D in the subject at AS.Pleased with the results of my pupils. The point about percentages going up because people drop out after AS is certainly true, I find this every year, and to quite a significant effect.
As for information being more available etc, in a lot of subjects this won't do any good, as you have all the information anyway, the exams are about interpreting that information given the questions. This is particularly true in non-coursework subjects.
I was watching an interesting feature on the news the other morning regarding the benefits or otherwise of a university education, when set against the costs incurred etc.What's the point of a system that doesn't discriminate?
Apparently exam boards can even change the grade boundaries even after all the papers have been marked! Sounds a bit strange to me....A lot of people don't know that exam boards can change the grade boundaries. A botton A one year could have been a top B the year before.
