    Hmm, yet Stuart from Big Brother managed 4 A's and has so far demonstrated little such intelligence to justify it...actually I'm jealous - I'd be very proud if I got 3 A's.

    1.) It's not a fact.
    2.) It includes private schools and grammars.

    I don't want the stat for the % of AAA's, I want the % of AAA's attained by comprehensive school students.

    I don't want any gay eton puff included in a stat that includes me because he's reared to get A's by being rich rather than clever, thank you very much.

    So don't give us a gay stat.

    Normal schools only please.
    lol word, parents that pay for their kids education is so lame.

    Private school of course, where the money talks, rather than student intelligence and motivation.

    lol, i don't think he'd last 10 minutes in a physics or chemistry lecture.

    and he doesn't come across as the most intelligent person!

    Fair enough, but I can tell he is intelligent. And dont see why it should be any surprise to anyone why he got 4A's. On the other hand I could see why people would be surpised if Emma had a 1st from Oxford.

    they are avaliable here:http://www.qca.org.uk/subjects/index.html
    and yes they are official stats- and Invisible seeing as public school studens make up less than 7% of the students in this country it will make a very small different to the stats.

    These stats are shite. The inclusion of grammar schools and private schools makes a massive difference, because they attain many AAA Grades.

    These stats are crap: A proper stat is the number of people achieving AAA from comprehensive schools only.

    My guess is 2%.

    What a load of rubbish!! at the majority of private schools 8% gaining 3As would be a great acheivement. And you do know there are selective schools that aren't grammar schools.
    And have you ever stopped to realise why some grammar schools get better results-because they pick the best pupils at 11, up to 11 they have had equal chance.

    And what is wrong with grammar schools (ignoring the private/public debate at the moment). I went to a grammar school and it dosent change how smart I am, and i dont pay any money to somehow magically make my grade better. Are you saying that my hard work over the last couple of years is worthless?

    Many pupils at grammar school attain AAA because they are smart, which is why they passed an exam to go to that school.
