    Hmmmm, interesting. You're the one ****ging off a subject you don't even study, yet somehow I'm ignorant? Yeah, that makes sense!

    There is a good explaination for the lower % of A grades.

    If you look at the statistics of the grades people got at GCSE and then the subjects they picked for Alevel, you would see a strong colleration between those that got low grades at GCSE and those that picked subjects like MS.
    Therefor, the 'quality' of the candidates in a subject like MS will be lower than Maths. This is why maths usually has a high number of As whereas MS has a low number.
    Its not because maths is easier than MS, its because the intelligence of the average candidate is much high than in MS.
    please do tell me, what do you think the UCAS points requirement is highest in, MS or Eng Lit?

    A degree subject can be very different to an A-level. For example, Law is a highly respected degree, whereas the A-level is grouped with the likes of Media and Business for certain universities.
    And I remember reading in the Law forum a few days ago that Oxford admissions tutors saying they actually preferred it if applicants DIDN'T take law as an a-level. just an interesting tidbit.

    Fortunately, she's practical and has morals and views which are respected in this forum. You have a knack for brown-nosing and being too avid of peoples' opinions of you, ergo you are a false, pretentious b*****d.

    Pure speculation on what determines the difference in grades, and as there are a number of factors involved you cannot make that assertion. How many times do you people have to be told. One person might be a creative, another a precision processor. People, by nature, have different skills. Now would you care to analyse the main part of my point?

    oh for **** sake, i respect her morals, i dont really care what subject she is going to do. No its not brown nosing, its simply support a point in which ramroff has put across. i dont think you can really call me pretentious for pointing out obvious facts.

    As has been pointed out many times, HearTheThunder wants to do software engineering, and just for the record, I want to do languages, so I don't see why we'll find it hard to get good jobs.
