    Alton towers will admit you to the theme park for free if you provide them with a results slip and ID, and you have obtained at least 3 U's

    Not a joke honest !

    I hate Alton Towers. The queues are way too long for rides that are totally over rated.

    agree about the queues... we went on a bus for 5-6 hours to reach Alton Towers... then did a 3 hours queue for Oblivion and then got the bus back!!! lol!

    Exam entries (even if you don't bother to go to the exam) cost money; so much money in fact that it would be much more expensive to be entered for and fail 18 exams than to buy a ticket to alton towers.

    Mr favourite out of all the theme parks i've been to is Apocalypse at Drayton Manor. It'll easy beat anything at Alton Towers. Besides, drayton manor has a better atmosphere. Rides are a bit boring now, too old for them.

    I think it's too cheer up those who've failed. Noone would actually want 3U's, or would they? :confused:

    You guys are talking about my 6th form college in Stoke-on-Trent... if we fail out exam, we get a trip to Alton Towers to cheer us up. Those who have worked hard, get nothing.

    Aaaaw that's not very clever, it's certainly not going to make the people who worked hard feel like their college cares.

    the council is backward. it's liberal, so what do yo expect?
    i'll receive a pass to alton towers... but i'll tell them that they should be encouraging us to do well... i.e if you give the passes to those who have done well, then it will encourage more to do well.

    a bit of common sense is needed.
