we wasnt sayin that it looks bad, just it is more favourable to have an A on your UCAS form at AS, especially in the tradition subjects, as those are wot are favoured by the better universities, and its wot makes the more academic students stand out in the crowd!
It is their problem, but they really dont seem to care at all!!!!!!! However i dont think they seem to realise just how much we really do care! Maybe if no-one turned up to the exams then they would actually realise, n not just go on about how exams are getting easier! A-levels so aren't!!!!!
OCR have been a problem as well at my skool!!!! They are the only two boards that we use for A-level and we've had problems with both. Because of all the problems that happened with OCR History the summer before last our school changed to the Edexcel board and we've experience the same problem this year! ARGH!!!! xxxx
Couldn't have put it better myself!!!!! hehe
All the exam boards are appalling.
Because it is a well known fact (even our teachers have confirmed this), that if too many people get high grades (in ANY level; A/S; GCSE; whatever), the boundaries are changed. The countris students will NEVER achieve more than 8% A's. If I was entitled to that grade, then I feel I shoould have it on my certificates. Is that wrong?
