    There's too many A levels already IMO. There should be fewer A levels and they should be taught better - a lot of respectable university subjects have spawned pretty useless A-Levels cos there's not that much that's teachable within an A level remit.

    Just get the foundations right at A level and leave the specialisation till uni.

    its about your question, not about the UK. its odd hearing you tell yourself to hush.
    If you read the comment I was quoting, he brought up the Scotland/Ireland/Wales/England situation and tried to make it comparable to what I was saying about exam boards. It's not really a good metaphor to be using.

    its your failure to interpret the metaphor thats the issue.

    Different boards evolve in their own ways in different circumstances and environments, and there are a multitude of differences that cant be settled between them if you were to try to unify the exam system.


    its not about should, its just the way it is when it comes to looking at things from a large scale point of view. thats the problem with looking at things from that scale, you lose sight entirely of individuals needs and wants.

    But why should there be differences in exam boards that essentially offer the same qualification? When one exam board's A Level is considered more "difficult" than another, how is that fair for the individual students involved?



    And I can interpret metaphors just fine, thenkyevermuch :rolleyes:
