    Currently I'm on either Es or Ds, it's equivalent to A/A*s at GCSE kind of so I expect that for English Literature and English Language purely because it's been a month. My English Language teacher said she firmly believes I'll get a B at A Level, wishful thinking. However for people doing Maths at A Level, they had to do an assessment in the first week and if they failed then they were kicked off in my school, I'm sure the same applies to any school though.

    Anyone else?

    Its not a lie everywhere, we had 25 at the start of Maths AS and after the induction test it went down to 16.

    That's your school then, My teacher told me I passed the entrance exam but after the test I just didn't feel like I enjoyed maths anymore so I voluntarily left to switch subjects just like some other people in my class did , don't assume they got kicked out.

    Yes I said that your claim isnt correct everywhere, and thats a shame Maths is a great subject. Im sure it was the right decision for you though, and it wasn't an assumption.

    My school does and it sounds fair, maths is hard and not for the faint hearted and if you can't do it on the first week then no point doing it at all. And I said kind of, I didn't say it was and my teacher said it is equivalent to B and A grades at GCSE.
