    I'd say its probably BCC/CCC... asking this question on TSR is a bad idea, its average is probably ABB/AAB-ish

    ABB-BBC would probably include over half the people taking the exams?

    I remember reading somewhere that 25% of A-Level passes are an A-Grade.

    Sorry I can't be any more help
    Shouldn't it be like ~10% of the students :confused: i.e. those who distinguish themselves from others?

    I was told by my English Lit teacher the average for that subject is a low D :eek: not too sure how reliable that is though as it does seem extremely low
    I suppose there's a big difference depending on subject though, for example I don't have anything agaginst Media Studies but I'm pretty sure that the average grade is much higher than for more academic subjects (unless that's only at the colleges near me?)

    Not sure about that. Hmmm. I know only a handful of my media class last year managed to scrape an A or B, but to be fair a lot of the class didn't bother doing any work for it.

    The A to B percentage is something like 65%.

    i would say the average for wach subject should be a c,
    yet we all seem to have averaged over 3 a levels, so surely this would rise to a b or two,
    no one can be perfectly 'average' surely, but yer, would say ccc-bcc ish

    just a thoght i had...

    You have to remember that a lot of people drop out after AS for performing badly, as well as drop a subject they're not so good at. Therefore I'd say the average overall A-Level results are perhaps BBC

    I think the statistic is that 25% of students now achieve one A grade, not 25% of all grades given out is an A. It's something like 10% of grades on a given exam are A's.

    finally, a decisive answer, yet no doubt the reliability of these sourse will now be interogated...

    kind of good for me cos i am more likely to get an A, but really does bring the value of the A level into disrepute...

    ooooh well, guess we are all getting smarter...


    the above post seems more likely tbh though ^^^

    Well isnt a C grade meant to be weighted to be the average after UMS conversions? CCC seems to be the most sensible

    The reason for high %s of higher grades is that people are filtered out firstly before AS levels because only half of students stay on and secondly after they fail or get a low grade at AS. If you look at GCSEs, the most common grade is a C, except for separate sciences which also has a filter - only the students best a science take it. For separate sciences the grade distribution looks a lot more like A level.
