    So you're saying he turned phrases like 'I like to eat apples because they are nice' into a B at AS? You're just making an idiot of yourself then!:rolleyes:

    You are making this up. It is obvious that you are when you say "maybe it was a fluke". I can't believe you were wondering why some people neg repped you.:banghead:

    The chances or him getting a B at AS only knowing GCSE stuff would be like me saying to you 'try this GCSE chinese paper and get an A in it' without being taught the stuff.

    So you can prove your point that you can use your A* knowledge from GCSE can get you a high grade in languages and various other subjects.

    People are getting worked up because someone doesn't know what they are talking about.

    If you mean what would someone with an A* at GCSE get if they took the AS exams straight afterwards without actually studying the AS course, the answer is almost always a U, maybe an E and possibly a D, but definitely no higher than that. AS levels are completely different to GCSEs. They usually cover new topics and content that wasn't even touched on at GCSE and they always require a much higher level of skills. Speaking for my own subjects, if by any chance a student had studied a text/topic for GCSE English lit/history that was also on the AS syllabus, they might scrape an E, but I seriously doubt they'd do any better than that because AS requires much deeper knowledge and much more sophisticated essay/source skills. As for French, again they might scrape an E, but they'd rarely do any better than that because AS requires much more vocab, more complex grammar, more sophisticated topics, knowledge of culture/society and much better language skills.

    If you mean what would someone with an A* at GCSE be likely to get at AS, that completely depends on the person and a variety of individual factors- how easy they found the subject at GCSE, how hard they had to work for it, how hard they worked at AS, how well they were taught at both GCSE and AS etc etc. The general rule, and one that was true for me, is that you go down a grade between GCSE and AS. So if you get an A* at GCSE, you should get an A at AS (as I did in French) if you get an A at GCSE, you should get a B at AS (as I did in English lit and history, pre resits) and so on.

    It'd be interesting if everyone took the AS exams in their subjects before starting the course to see what the answer really is.

    What I ment was someone who got an A* in a subject
    and spent 1 or 2 days looking at the AS syllabus and past papers in the subject
    could sit the subject and get a C.
    Like with about 10 hours work.
    Maybe you would need to be fimular with a handful of new concepts to get a C
    but 10 hours work and im pretty sure that if i sat any module after gcse with 10 hours to study, i could get a C in it

    You obviously didn't if you read the whole thread. The OP said like in SATS Level 10 is equivalent to an A* at GCSE. What is an A* at GCSE equal to at A-level? I think you have realised how stupid you sounded and basically you are making up an excuse to cover up your so called mistake.

    Nar I didnt make myself clear before. Lack of clarity
    I made an assumption that you would put 1/2 days of work before sitting any exam, especially if you havent even seen the material before

    I apologise for you not seeing that I made this assumption but to me it seemed obvious.

    With that statement I know definitely know that you are trying to cover up that you were wrong by taking a bit of the blame. You said that if someone with the knowledge of GCSE could get a C at AS. If it seemed so obvious why would everyone around you tell you that you were clearly wrong. I mean you don't know ridiculous you sound.
