A 'B' actually.
But you seem to not have any grasp of the language anyway, so I won't place my trust in your predictions.

Is 40 percent a good percentage for getting As and Bs?

What it seems to imply is that, on average, for each grade i.e. A - E, 20% will achieve that relevant grade. This year, if what we have been told in the Times is correct, 97% have passed so that confirms the above thesis (apart from the stray 3%!)

I have been monitorting this thread for some time now, could you tell me which one your post was (i.e. what it concearned). If it has in fact been deleted I will hopefully be able to restore it for you.

I think anyone who gets ANY grade at a-level should be pleased with what they achieved, as long as they know that they did the best that they could of under the circumstances ( whatever they may be ).

oh plz....some of u hear r clearly speaking out of ur asses...3 Es is something to be proud of and i hear nonsense "as long as u tried ur best"..."u have achieved ur maximmum potential"...****ing hell utter crap.

some ppl dont have it in them to use education and trust someone who gets 3Es has not tried hard. thats someone who clearly hasnt bothered to improve coz wat they've moved from U's to E's oh amazing. If ur gonna do A-levels u should b a student who at least is gonna achieve a grade higher than the passing grade which is a D...dont bother coming into school if ur aiming for 3E's coz quite frankly and quite sadly ur going nowhere. u r wasting ur time and those ppl who r sympathising r merely trying to make a stupid point out of nowhere thinking they r some hot stuff.

Take ur 3E's and show them to ur nearest supermarket mayb and i repeat mayb then u will get a job, or just let those who worked hard got C's and higher make money pay tax while u sit on ur ass, having flunked school sucking the money in...

Erm you're not really seeing the bigger picture here, having E's or having 5 A's makes no difference to if you're on the dole or not. I know plenty of people with jobs who don't even have GCSEs so the tax thing dosn't mean anything.

Yes it is pointless just aiming for 3 E's but I don't think anybody does. The problem is that people who do A levels for the sake of it and don't put any work in come out with E's and waste everybody's time and money.

wow some really diverse opinions here, on an intruiging subject. However i think it all relates to the ridiculous pledge by TB that '50% of people go on to university by 2006(?ISH)'. If someone is going into a subject, say acadaemia, which relies on lots of research and specialised ways of learning then of course a-levels, degree etc, is essential. But getting certain qualifications isnt necessary for many ares, i mean who wants 10 professors of plumbing, as opposed to 10 plumbers. there needs to be a shift in emphasis towards an equivalents of a degree, and even a-levels(GNVQ'S etc arent regarded highly enough currently). Someone who gains EEE may not, it would appear be suited to an academic field, like medicine etc, but for all we know the could trun out to be the greatest musical composer, the most talented footballer etc. Education should be about furthering oneself as well as providing the future with individuals capable of continuing and furthering our academic knowledge and progess. There most be other ways, other than degrees etc, of finding each persons individual talents and letting them shine to their potential, rather than just academic pupils.. ps. apologies for any typos i had to type this out double quick(not gonna look good on a piece about education, but i assure i CAN spell simple words)

Its not by 2006, its 2010 and its not 50% into university, its 50% of under 30 year olds doing some kind of higher education qualifcation. There is a big difference.

Utter twaddle !!!!!!!

You cannot make a blanket statement like that. For all you know, the person acheiving a grade below a C could be the least academically inclined person in the world. This would mean that they have worked VERY hard on getting that E and I for one would say that the E has far more value than a high end grade would be to a naturally gifted person. Achievement is totally relative to the individual and it is unfair, inaccurate and wrong to compare.
yea i agree coz think of them ppl frm other countrys lol trying to do A levels who find english language really hard. They must put tons of effort in even if they only get an E. Anyway the facts are that D is average so theres loads probably loads of ppl who try and get E. Then again grade E is often associated wiv dossers but not in all cases
