Exams in English are getting easy. I have a friend who is doing A level English told me that the GCSE higher English was harder.
but it all depends on what A-levels you do. There are those which i consider hard (Maths and Physics) and those which I consider easy (media). I took maths, physics, graphics and media for A/s and found maths by far the harder and in Media easy. I found that people who did not do so well in GCSE english (getting D's/C's) get B's and A's in media and people in maths who got A's and A* in GCSE fail or get an E.
It made me question whether all A-level subjects should carry the same merit. As in an 'A' in media is as easy/hard to get a 'A' in Maths.
Also, i'm hearing that the maths A-level is being made easier in few years, would this put me at a disadvantage?
People are going for easy A levels to get good marks. The exams are different from 30 years ago, It was much harder to get a A grade for gcse.
theyre easier (noone did 4 alevels in the old system, only 3), but still a worthwhile challenge
O levels were harder than today's gcse. You did not have any couse work cousework.
To much couse work today. many will cheat as well.
You had two levels CSEand O levels. Olevels were the higher level and CSE lower level. You would have to take O level to take A levels. To get a place at Cambridge you would have to take O level latin, and take the S level which is higher than Alevel.
O levels are the higher paper of today exams for gcse.
make exams harder and so more people don't pass. at such a high rate. A levels should be a golden exam, and the best. Not some easy way to get into uni
There are much easier ways than A levels to get into university.
