    At the time GCSEs seemed challenging, then A-levels seemed challenging making GCSEs seem way to easy.

    Just wait till you get to Degree :eek:

    Some of the problem with my course is that the lecturers dont tell you what they are expecting until after they hand the work back :banghead:

    If not a f*cking mind reader!

    When i did my GCSE's i found them easy. I mean it's basically common sense. Now, A Levels depend alot on what your doing. I'm on a computer course, so it's quite easy. But i hear Maths is very hard. As for Uni, my brother did Law and got a 2:1, he's quite smart though. So i'm not sure.

    I found maths easy. It was Further maths that I didnt do so well on, but some of that is because you do imaginary numbers. I mean wtf! Square root of -1 and all that crap. 1 over infiniti.

    All the stuff that doesnt exist in "normal" maths, really does!

    Not to sound big headed (but there is no other way of saying this) I did really well with my A-levels, but I'm struggling to pass my degree :(

    Anyone needs any help on Maths or Physics hit me up :D

    English is not an original language it is an adapted mash of lots of other languages, latin, french, saxon, etc.

    I dont think there are many original languages left, at least none that have less that 30 names for snow or sand.

    I was the opposite, did crap with A levels, got two really good degrees, then went on and did accountancy (in the Army) and got the equivilent of a third ..... I have improved with age! :) always had the ability I spose, rarely had the inclination (apart from my 27 years in the Army).

    OK it's time I joined the club! I live in herefordshire, which is obviously the best county.
    Also I'm at uni atm and it's made A levels seem so easy!

    Considering my DT teacher told me "you are going to fail your DT GCSE" this morning when I was sat doing a past paper. Maths on the other hand I'm fine with...

    what i hear almost everyday is the GCSE exams get easier and easier every year as you progress in life,although but the year below would find hard and the current yr11(me currently) would struggle..and when i reach six form or something and half way through the year i would find GCSE piss easy and the yr10(now) would find there exams hard once they move to yr11 and i'm predicted 2 Bs and like 7 Ds ¬¬ how the fck does that work out

    It's because the exams are different, some of the exams have been dumbed down (either that or my school's switched boards for Chem and Bio since the exams for those are dead easy, a measure of that being that I winged both my chemistry modules and got 98 and 100). Some exams though like DT are RIDICULOUS (may just be that I've not actually been taught any of the theory stuff though...

    exams are easy if you know the stuff and were taught well

    i know that highers and intermediates are far better than your english equivalents but not perfect

    intermediates build you up for highers better

    in england there are so many varients of exams gcse A levels ect to many standard grades ect

    needs to be one single qualification set

    Yea, like the same governing body throughout the whole school system (Infant, Junior, High, College and Uni) with the same Grading. So you can see full progression and everyone takes the same exams.

    Well basically it means people don't even look at my CV.

    I've not been able to get a job for 8 months or so, and my previous job was just working as a GA in Tesco, and that was only due to my sisters boyfriend getting me the job.


    I'm pretty much buggered until I can get some qualifications but everything costs money to do, and as I have no job I don't have the money to get trained.

    I feel very very stuck ha ha, luckily my parents don't mind putting up with me in the mean time.
