who tf is telling u to do this BS AS/A level course ,are u aware of the millions of other syllabuses were ppl are passing and are already ahead of u ?GTFO out of this mindset that A levels is so acclaimed since its British.Look at indian pakistan american syllabuses most of the student are in UNI doing what they want.At the end of the day ur still only in 12 th GRADE 12 th Nothing in life u havent even started uni .so dont put barriers so early on in life. Not to mention there Grade boundries oh if i get 47/80 U ... srs m8 are they high ..This is why Uk as a country will go down ..Think logically for once .Imagine the amount of kids who had interest but was not allowed to pursue Sad af but nobody speaks about this ....Becuase they beleive it SMH open ur eyes up .

I don't understand what you're saying? Are you angry because the grade boundaries are too high? The system in American ain't great, people are conned out of hundreds of thousands to go to ""college"" to learn year 6 level maths.

No one is saying a levels are the best ever qualification, we live here and therefore have to do the qualification our country sets. If we lived in another country, we would be sitting their qualifications. The grade boundaries aren't like that for all A levels, in fact it's usually typical as far as percentages go. sometimes the grade boundaries are lowered but it's to do with everyone in the country performing a certain way. A levels are hard, lmao. We do them because we want to go to Uni and that's the best way to do so. In academia, you need the best in the field. Grade boundaries can't be lowered simply to get more people A's and B's because if people are getting U's at a level, that qualification is probably not for them. Unfortunately it's the way it is. It is sad that not everyone can pursue what they would ideally like to pusue but that's life, it isn't fair. Letting everyone into University just for the sake of it would produce too many graduates (the ones who couldn't do a levels well would most likely get a very low degree) and a lack of vocational jobs. Making a levels harder has been an attempt to get more people into vocational jobs. Some vocational jobs earn more than teaching, civil service etc. We have other options for people who can't do a levels, unlike other countries. BTECS can get you into Uni, our apprenticeship scheme is pretty good. The system isn't perfect, but it certainly caters for a lot of people.

I learned Year 6 level math in the fifth grade - the equivalent of Year 6 in England. I learned financial math in my first year of college - which is what we call a four-year post-secondary school. I don't know where you're getting your information from, but you and many others on here who have never gone to school in the U.S. are making a lot of assumptions and passing them off as facts which is misleading and ignorant. The system in the UK can't be that great if you use "ain't" and say the "system in American."
