    Theresa May has announced a groundbreaking scheme to dramatically cut education costs. Nationwide grammar schools will be built, such that every child is in reasonable proximity to one. Those who pass their 11+ will gain entry to the prestigious institutions, while those who do not will be streamed into newly set up workhouses. They will, assuming reasonable health, live to around 30 under the demanding conditions, also partially solving the problem of our ageing population. Truly a master stroke from our new leader.

    Asked about the new plans, Theresa May said "It's all about social mobility for our brightest and best. Indeed, former grammar school attendees often reach influential and coveted positions. Remind you of anyone? As to the rest, well, a pity. Naturally we do not wish to infringe on individual liberties, so there is a bailout system. A minimum of £100,000; quite modest, of course. We do think that even those less gifted should be able to contribute to society, and our brand new workhouses provide them fabulous opportunities to do so. One most confess that it is win-win, wherever he or she stands, don't you agree?"

    I haven't seen any; any key changes been noted or would someone have to sift through it to get an idea?

    But I'm glad I got a head start on AS Biology. So I can set the grade boundaries higher.

    I personally could never be glad of commencing study of biology earlier than necessary

    The AS qualification is a stand alone qualification now. So it doesn't contribute to your A-level grade whatsoever. You could get all U's in all your AS subjects then get all A* at A-level.

    Maybe they just include more AS knowledge in the A-levels exam or something I guess.

    I just had bad experiences of biology at GCSE. The teachers tried their best to make it interminably boring. Hence I am conditioned to dislike the thought, I suppose...

    But 71/75 for FP3 must be disheartening to many hopeful mathematicians.
