    Exam Results

    Well A level and As level results are out on thursdat with GCSEs following shortly. I am now nervouly awaiting my As results on Thursday
    Good luck everyone who is getting reuslts soon

    One thing that has made me very angry is the way people have already been writting off the latest set of results saying that they are far too easy, i actualy find this rather insulting. I read one headline that read 97% pass rate. This is such a false figure because although D and Es are passes everyone regards them as a fail really. Sure results have got better and teachers are better at techinh exam technique but really i find this endless bashing of acheivment very frustrating.

    Definitely, especially since 2003 they've just gone downhill all the way.

    If I'd spent two years being told how to do it and weeks cramming beforehand I'm sure I'd do fine...

    A lot of it is geared towards the exam i will admit that but is that our fault? incase anyone was wondering i do not do media studies as most people seem too think every A level student does
