Can anyone tell me how they are calculated, or of a site that
explains how the average points score is composed for A level and
avce results. Also, how the scores for target minimum grades are
weighted for GNVQ courses?

I watched a program last night about 9/11 conspiracies, namely the Twin Towers were not bought down by aircraft crashing into them but it was a controlled demolition carried out by conspiractors.

The conspiracy theorists claim that a fire could not have weaken the metal frame of the twin towers enough to make them collapse but explosives or a new and secret type of incendiary material was used instead.

Experiments were done to test these ideas and in both cases, the conspiracy theorists were proven wrong. They did not accept the emperical evidence from the experiments but they did no provide any counter evidence of their own.

It seems to me that if you want to believe in something enough, then any evidence to the contrary would not deflect people from those beliefs but instead, other objections which are also unproven would be put up.

A bit like Creationism.

Tower 7?

the writers of the official report on 9/11 have admitted that it is basically ******** because they were prevented from investigating lots of things...less was spent on it than was spent trying to work out if bill clinton got a blowjob or not.

There's plenty of other things that people conspire about. And thus, being unable to deflect people from their beliefs is not confined to Creationists.

I don't know why you placed your OP here...I would rather it was posted in the thread that I am proud to have set up, here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...th#post5966702

At least it led to protracted debate, (2045 posts!) unlike this thread which will expire very shortly as it's a non-goer.
