    It shows that the % differences are not the same in the 2 examples, so his comparison wasn't justified...

    And btw, I don't do Critical Thinking.

    480 is still pretty good - i mean averaging 80 ums in evry module is quite hard

    That's a nonsense argument with the scores.

    It's like saying "It's alright for a 50 year old to shag a 40 year old, so why isn't it ok for a 20 year old to shag a ten eyar old? Still a 10 year age difference, no?"
    That's such a crap analogy! OK lets use %s... In the same way as we differentiate between someone with 68% (C) and 82% (A), we should differentiate between 82% (A) and 93% (still an A).

    My admissions tutor comment was assuming that everything else between the two is equal.

    So you think that someone who scraped 240 deserves equal credit to someone who stormed it to 295?

    Fair enough, but I think someone who got 580/600 should get more credit (ie A*). As it is you have two candidates with considerably different levels of ability, intellect and effort both getting an identical grade.
