    Actually, the higher classes control everything, wealth, the amount of tax collected, education, public sector, top private sector.

    No good in complaining. Better to get your head down and try and break into it. You're complaining about universities and A-levels.

    You're gonna have a rude awakening when you come to find a job if you're trying to enter traditional upper middle professions.
    If the higher classes controlled the amount of tax collected, do you really think we'd have a 45% income tax rate for higher earners?

    It's all a conspiracy man! The higher classes control everything, it's a new world order. *puts on tinfoil hat*

    It's possible to get into traditionally upper class professions, you just might have to try harder if you're from a normal background. Wealthy parents might offer their children valued internships and experience, normal people just have to be pro-active in finding them.

    It depends on the time-zone. Kenya might not be far enough East of the UK to require an international paper. And if the grade boundaries are lower, it's because the paper is harder.
    Thanks. Oops! That was a typo, I meant that they are so high. Kenya is only 2 hours ahead of the UK and as for the mark schemes it seems I did the same paper. An A for c3 is 50 whilst an A is 61!

    Add CCEA to the list, and it's spot on.

    To be honest, you should have contacted your universities a little while ago before results so that they could have properly reviewed your application. I had a problem and my firm is taking it into consideration, but my insurance isn't.

    I contacted admissions from each university and they referred me to the right place

    No, an A grade at AS level is 80 UMS out of 100, same as at A2. The only difference is that 90/100 UMS at A2 gives an A*, whereas if you got 90/100 at AS it would only be shown as an A (albeit a high one).

    Your performances at AS won't help to get an A* in A2, as you need an average of 90/100 at A2 level specifically.
    But for like geography 75 out of 120 raw marks is an A

    if worse does come, isn't it a waste of time to come in to collect your results? when you could be at home making calls

    you can find out whether you got in to uni way before the time most schools/colleges open their doors (10:00am seems to be the consensus) just by logging into track
