    Oh I see. *sigh* Por/para is such a hard topic to master.
    I know, it's so complicated!! Can't they just have one word? That would make life a lot easier! Although I am rather fond of grammar....

    Would it still make sense to say más bueno, in Italian you say meglio, but it's still okay to say più buono?
    Nope, más bueno is a sin

    According to the RAE (Real Academia Española/Royal Spanish Academy), más bueno is acceptable but its use is restricted to good when it means 'kind/generous' describing a person's character, or when it means 'pleasing/appealing'. For those who have a good understanding of Spanish, this gives great insight about the topic.

    I just found out too, after a search prompted by Aasvogel's question. However, the RAE affirms that mejor can be used for all meanings of bueno, including those applied to mas bueno, so when in doubt, es mejor utilizar mejor!

    EDIT: Oops I misread, the 'pleasing' bit especially refers to taste (i.e. tasty/delicious). And the same applies to mas malo/peor.

    People in Pakistan already have their A-level results
    I've noticed that on the A-level section.
    The British kids "sit" their exams while the Indian kids "give" their exams
    Of course, different time zones could mean that it's already the 15th in Pakistan.
