    You don't get a further maths grade like the rest, if you do AQA you'd understand it's given to you like that. What do you want from me? A physical picture? A picture of my offers at uni? My certificates? I feel as though all we do is go around in circles. If you want to know some good news, I probably won't be going to uni because Core 3 was the worst experience of my life. You can make fun then.
    I do AQA and I did maths and further maths at AS. All 6 of my unit grades were given below and both of my AS grades were stated above on my results sheet. And I'm not making fun, I just don't believe you. Why would you say you got ABCD?

    Having done AS Maths and FMaths it depends on the modules you take.

    I took 6 modules in my first year but one module (C3) couldn't be put in AS Maths or the AS FMaths bracket so I only got 1 AS grade (for Maths) in my first year.

    My board was Edexcel so it depends on his board and his modules.

    Cool. Our boards are AQA, and he hasn't done any core A2 modules that would cause that to happen. FP1, D1 and D2 is a perfectly fine combination for AS further maths.

    Cameron will be remembered as the PM that could have been. He talked about the Big Society during his years as Tory leader which slowly eroded. His efforts to modernise the Tory party have been relatively successful due to the success of the Coalition government and particular policies (gay marriage being most notable). The image of the Tories being the nasty party is less existent than it was ages ago and consequently he has made them more electable. He took tough decisions during his time in power (particularly economically) and this should be commended - the deficit has been cut in half since he took power and unemployment lower than pre recession levels.

    However he has been disastrous over constitutional + foreign matters. His success in the AV/Scottish referendums implicitly encouraged him for an EU one - which he never intended (he hoped for it to be used as a bargaining chip for future Lib Dem Coalition). His policy with Libya has proven to be a failure. His EU renegotiation was a failure. The Right in this country are very fractured (not as bad as the Left) which Theresa might bridge.

    His failure in the EU has trumped all his accomplishments. He could have been the leader to save the UK economy and keep Scotland in the Uk - both are now at risk due to his recklessness.

    I really don't want to get into another argument because I think we've both had enough. However, I have done a bit of research and I'm told the reason my further maths result wasn't shown is because they weren't "cashed-in". The school might put my statistics 1 result, which I did this year, with my AS further maths qualification if it is the best outcome grades-wise.

    As I said, if you look through the entire history of account you will find countless contradictions. It's frustrating that my grades are being questioned but I can't force you to believe something, and I can't really blame you. The reality is I'm hoping to go to Leeds in the summer to study either Economics or Chinese (we'll see which one), and for the past month I've been doing nothing but get in arguments over TSR, playing football and obsessing about Core 3.

    Okay. I don't believe you, because I can't honestly fathom why someone who loves facts so much would contradict himself about his grades and say he got ABCD, when in reality he got AAAA. Just doesn't make sense to me, I'm afraid. No one who gets straight As pretends they did less well, and most people with straight As aim higher than for universities with AAB requirements. But I don't need you to explain why you've lied, because I really cannot be bothered to continue this conversation. Bye.

    So with regards to gay marriage, was that for purely proposing the legislation? Because the only way it was finally enacted was through other political factions.

    I guess I'm not disputing giving him a small portion of credit for that but to call it a defining feature of his legacy is surely a little over the top? Or are we just saying that, for a Tory, he's slightly more liberal?

    Gay marriage wasn't in the Tory or Lib Dem manifestos in 2010, and as far as I'm aware not in Labour's. What was defining about it was that Cameron pushed for it despite the bulk of his party being against it. And you are right - it showed that he was (to some extent) a liberal conservative as opposed to a traditional conservative.

    The man who made it his priority to bring same-sex marriage to the UK, despite it tearing up half his party. It wasn't in the Tory manifesto but he still made it a priority. Bravo, Dave. :congrats:

    A lucky git. He won 2 elections and 2 referendums and he didn't fight a good campaign in any. His luck eventually ran out in June. I do not know why he took the gamble, and I do not know why no one questioned his ability to win the referendum campaign.

    I would have thought that it was pretty clear from the start that David Cameron is liberal.

    True but actions speak louder than labels.

    David Cameron will go down in history as a disastrous prime minister. An arrogant, elitist, out-of-touch, ineffective, spineless man who put the needs of his party ahead of the needs of his people...
