Why do so few people get A* in computer science?Watch
According to the OCR Alevel Statistics, only about 3% get an A* in CS. Meanwhile other subjects such as Math have 20% getting an A*. Why is there such as big difference in what grades people get? Surely the exam board would want the percentage of people getting a certain grade be approximately the same so that some courses aren't more easy to get a better grade in than others.
Maths has the advantage of definitive answers.
Business studies communication studies English and Eng lang and lit, Geog His and law are down there . Media studies is 1.8%.
I think it has to do with the nature of the course and quality of students.
