I don't know about maths, but in an essay subject such as law it means you were churning out daily mail articles for 3 years.

To just repeat what has been said, because it's so easy. At most universities (pretty much any bar the top few) an able candidate should be able to get a third without even going to lectures and learning the course the day before/morning of the exam

Most people finishing A levels can't realistically expect to get through a degree in 3 years.
Able is relative an able candidate can get 5 firsts from Oxford in 5 STEM degrees at once if that's how you chose to define able.I had A A C grades at A Level a 148 IQ and worked harder than I had to for a 40 hour job. I attended every lecture. Courses are not equal in difficulty or the difficulty between different grade bands. I learnt to write code to do mathematical modeling as part of half of one 20 credit module I scored just over 70% in my first year. Then it got harder and I ended up with 49% over the 2nd and 3rd years and at the highest end of the lowest honours degree and second lowest degree. In america there's a 50% dropout rate for stem subjects many have taken extra years before hand or to graduate in some cases they have many more years worth of a knowledge base to draw from and have covered some of the topics before hand.Last edited by Iam3cats; 19-09-2015 at 00:23.
