    Well any person with your grades (not that I'm say they aren't good) wouldn't bother applying to LSE or even know little about it. And I doubt they'd even apply to Paisley unless they lived near it in Scotland.

    I'll say it for you: they're crap And I hardly think he's being serious; he's playing out a stereotype. He knows full well that someone with those grades will never get into LSE.

    LOL of course he is... but if he is real then I think it would've been very funny for the people at LSE to read his UCAS personal statement.

    I saw a job agency for ethnic minorities the other day, and also a few job adverts saying "disabled people are guaranteed interviews". Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks positive discimination is as bad as racism/sexism/etc itself !
    haha, you're in mjg's sig, respect!

    I thought the letter system was fairly widely used if not understood. A is best, anything lower is less good. At GCSE grades go A-G then U (unclassified); at AS/A2 level it's A-E then U.

    LSE is the London School of Economics, one of the best universities in the country. Yes, they do offer undergraduate courses.

    The only letter system we have is the same for every grade level
    In Canada, 80% and up is A- through A+, in the us it is 90%+.
    70% is the B range, 60% is the C range, 50 is D range and below that who cares cuz you have to be an idiot to get those marks anyways
