    Does it carry a penalty?

    You do an essay subject, so you'll have much more coursework to upload than somebody studying a non essay subject. It's a wee bitty unfair when you think about it but oh well.

    Yep. The committee could commit him to prison for the remainder of the current Parliament.

    I know people doing science subjects who do loads of essays as well, albeit shorter ones. If anything this makes it easier for them to get the credits. Besides, to my knowledge there is pretty much no content control so you can knock up a really bad 2000 word essay in no time and make some credits.

    I'm going to upload my science investigations I did this year after results day because I'm paranoid about being accused of plagiarism :lol:

    But I find it a bit odd that I'll get the same number of credits for my 40 page science investigations as I do for my 3 page English essays from last year but there we go. Maybe they should link the length of the coursework submitted to the number of credits you get? :holmes:

    He's someone who caused the collapse of the world's oldest bank by using your method of teaching fiscal responsibility. Made losses on the Market, put more money in to recoup those losses and just kept going in a circle of risk and debt.

    This is the perfect example of the dangers of your way. The fact that people didn't and don't seem to be learning from past lessons worries me.

    I'm not against buying shares, rather that encouraging it as a viable, long term source of income which you should keep pumping money into from a young age is just going to cause history to repeat itself.

    Okay well noted.

    From a young age? I'm not a 3 year old I'm old enough to make the decision to put money into something and continue doing so if I wish.

    Why?
    My brother is in the Police and took it to work with him. He put the only copy of some CCTV on there so now it has been seized for the courts as evidence. So I now have no clue when or if I will get it back.
