    Well i suppose in 2010 it will be:
    A*= excellent
    A= satisfactory
    B= Average
    c= Below average
    d= poor
    No that won't be right. C will still be average. There are people who get the equivalent to an A* now, but obviously the exam boards haven't been awarding them.
    Sorry for being serious. :p:

    A* - Excellent
    A - Great
    B - Good
    C - Average
    D - Unsatisfactory
    E - Poor

    My take on it.

    An A is NOT given to the people who are best in their subject, IMO. There might be people who have a better understanding of a subject than the people that got an A, but due to bad circumstances they may have only got a B or lower.

    I think the grades are just to show the standard of your work at the time... I don't think it gives a good indication of your performance as a whole.
    Exactly. My music teacher said I was capable of achieving an A in Music but because she was off A LOT (and Music is one of those subjects that you need a teacher to help you) I only got a D but I got an A at GCSE.

    fine i suppose you're right, A isn't satisfactory nor good, it's quite great, so yes well done.

    A = Excellent
    B = Good
    C = Reasonably capable
    D = Lacklustre
    E = Barely passed
    N = Barely failed
    U = Unclassified
    This is TECHNICALLY right. But I'm going to go the cheesy route and say so long as you meet your own personal targets you're doing just fine :cool:

    It's not actually true as you have to interpret new situations and be skilled at doing the questions. Learning formulas by memory will not help one jot unless you can apply them, and the answers very rarely just "fall" out...

    i never said formulas, i said methods (or i implied it at least). use the same method over and over again and you have you're answer, nothing more to it nothing less to it

    It's also vital to recognize where to apply which method to which question and when to combine different methods, it takes more than just learning...
