I distinctly remember it being under half the general population, still is, from the tax/budget/unemployment figures.

I might have a go but keep it private unless I thinks do really well

thinks :-) FFS!

In my Maths A level Mock my teacher took 2% off of my final mark because the twat said I spelt my name incorrectly...I pointed out what my name is, and he still took 2% off. The twat.

He was annoyed because the month before he told me I'd fail as I had done no work at all, which was true, but I crammed like made and got 98% (i.e. 100).

I stopped doing anymore work that year and got a B.

If I remember correctly, the A level had a section in French.

I took my Maths O Level a year early and scraped through with a C. I did Statistics the following year and failed but have often thought about doing it again as I thought I should have sailed through it. After the exam, I thought that not enough time was given by the examination board to complete the paper.

French in A level Gen Studies yes. Big step up from O level French iirc (it’s 36 years ago)

I love some of those essay questions! Imagine trying to persuade someone who doesn't like poetry to try some. It's almost saying you're a complete savage if you don't appreciate it :-)

Thanks to um for setting up this thread. What I might do is drop a question or two in here every now and then for people to have a ponder rather than a mass of them like on my blog today.
