What do people think ?. Are students getting brighter every year, just better at passing exams or what ? Years ago students could get into a good University with C Grades. Now I know of students with B Grades who can't a place of their choice and it isn't Med School they want either. With students facing fees next year of £9,000 a year, are we really being fair. No doubt GCSE's will also see "better than ever results". We will have reports of students getting 12 A*. In my day, students did 8 or 9 O levels. I am not knocking any student who has done well but there must students who have done well this year who would have done equally well 10, 20, 30 years ago and students who have done well this year who 10, 20 or 30 years ago would not have achieved such high results. Are we creating fairness or making it harder by having so many pass.
